I have made a lot of male friends on singles cruises that I have stayed in contact with and I've also met a lot of female friends. A singles cruise is what you want it to be. I was on the Carnival Pride Halloween cruise and I always book a single balcony cabin. I had dinner with the same guy every night and he asked me if I booked a single cabin in case I met someone. My response was 'no'.. it's just I'm too old to play mystery roommate roulette! You meet many people that are there for different reasons .. I like going because there's always people to have dinner with and hang around with etc.... I'm already booked on the Halloween cruise out of Florida. I'm thrilled because I got one of the larger aft balcony cabins. I'm debating between the March singles trip or a singles trip to Morocco in April. Decisions.. Decisions!
