Blueseas - go to the singles get together on the first night of the cruise. Also, don't be afraid to strike up conversations with people sitting next to you at the bar or in a lounge - I've made lots of friendships that way. Participate in some of the events on board. You will have fun - I've cruised solo three times with number four coming up this fall and I always have a good time and have never felt lonely.
Crown Princess 1/18/14....the NEW Me, Myself and I cruise!
I just returned from the Legend and had a fabulous time as a single person. There is a meet and geet single party the first night in the disco but I was really disappointed with it. First of all their wasn't any representation from Carnival to get the party started, rather it was open to everyone meaning you didn't know who was there for the singles event or who was there with there wife to dance.
Needless to day that there were not many singles aboard my ship at all. But that didn't matter one bit, I met so many terrific people including couples, families and even really fun older people. I never once felt out of place or hard done because of it.
You will have a great time as it's just a natural happening to meet people aboard. You talk to people in the line to board, at dinner, in the elevators etc.
