I agree, spring break would be a fun time. I took my son and 4 of his friends their senior year........... That is a cruise I will never forget.

i think i already answered this in another question you posted...

i've had fun on all the cruises i've been on but the most fun i've ever had is the first full week of March. Spring Break comes full swing, and it is an absolute blast!

Actually, any month on a 3 day cruise is the best, the 4 day cruise mid weeks are not as single friendly, but week end cruises are, during any month!

generally, Carnival is the best for dingles, HAL is geared toward older people!

March or April on a singles cruise...they usually have "spring fling" cruises for people in their 20's and 30's. That way you get a full week of cruising in that singles atmosphere.

Also knows how to have a good time. I think he should sponser a cruisemates cruise and call it Dave the Wave's cruise. He could pick the events for the week and it would be fun. Bob

Well, I'll be a stick in the mud...
If you don't care much for screaming out of control children then you might consider a cruise in Nov., Dec., Jan., & Feb (kiddies are in school).....
If you book ahead of time (6 mths to a year) then your fare will be lower & you can cancel for a refund if you change your plan...
Mexico, Jamica, Grand Caymen, etc. are Cooler & more pleasant during these months as well....
We always book for Nov. & Dec. cruise dates but NOT on Thanksgiving or Xmas....
We also ask for the military discount, normally get it when we book a year ahead...
Hope this helps....

I went on a cruise in July 08 on the Destiny in the Caribbean. I was with a large group of 16 other friends. I had my own room. Carnival is very good at assigning seats for the nightly sit down dinner. Because I booked alone I was seated at a table with 6 other people who were all traveling alone. It was a 7 night cruise and I had the best time with my table mates during the week. I hung out with them quite often in the evenings after dinner. So pick where and when you want to go and you will be seated with other singles.

You might want to look for cruises that are specifically for singles. Some of the big singles' organization used to book large blocks of cabins on a specific sailing. Google for singles groups to find out which ones are still out there and planning cruises. You don't necessarily need to join the organization, but find out when they are going. And I also agree that asking the maitre d' to make sure you are seated at a table for people sailing solo is a good idea. I've done that and had a blast just with my table mates.
