I too, want to reassure you...going alone is actually quite fun. I went on my first cruise alone last month. I was worried I wouldn't meet a soul and would spend the trip all by myself bored to death. SO NOT THE CASE. Carnival is very good at putting people "just like you" together with you. Go to the singles night--even if you don't drink or dance...you can still meet new friends. Ask for late dinner seating (most singles do) and go! This is where I met most of my new friends. I am still in contact with several of them. As you can see from the pic I included....as a guy....things are in your favor! So go, relax, and have a great time!
