Default Singles Scene on Carnival Imagination?

I was disappointed in the singles' scene at a recent island vacation. My agent told me a cruise would be better.
Anyone have a sense of the couple/single ratio that is typically seen on a Carnival cruise? I'm departing mid-may on the Imagination.

Unless this is specifically a singles cruise, you will find mostly families. The shorter the cruise, the more singles you will find. At least in my experience. I suggest you check out the fun times when you come on board and make sure to attend the singles mingle which is usually the first night in one of the bars. Have a great time and enjoy the cruise.

Default Singles Cruising

Well you may find a couple of single ladys but most schools are out and you will find mainly familys and alot of kids on this cruise. When you go to the dining room ask to sit at "The Singles table" You may meet some people that way. Next time try Ncl's Epic which has 211 single rooms and a singles lounge. Also sail when kids are in school. Like Nov- Dec but stay away from holiday weeks. Heve a great cruise. Ed

you might want to look into one of the singles cruise websites. (not going to put a link as I am sure you can figure out how to do it) I did a couple cruises with them. The can match you with a room mate (of the same sex) so you dont get wacked for the single sup charge. They also have events for the group. They try to get an even number of men and women (sadly the ages don't always match up. might be more older guys on one with more older gals on another). They mostly use carnival ships for their cruises as well.

This is a pretty good option if you are outgoing and want to save some cash, maybe not so much if you are more of a loner (I include myself in the latter)

For some reason both myself and my travel agent had trouble finding a specifically "singles" cruise. Probably should have waited a bit until the next "cougar" cruise came up.
I've only been traveling for about the last four and a half years or so, and I'm still learning about what types of vacation I really like.
I liked the cruise on the Imagination, but so far, my two trips to Knob Creek, a B&B in St. Albans, VT. and a long drive around the state of Nevada have been the most fulfilling getaways I've done so far.

I have cruised single and alone 3 times and I found that most of the people were couples and of all age ranges.
