I would recommend either Carnival or Royal Carribean. Both lines tend to attract a younger crowd. We've been on both lines and found a lot of people on board in their 30's-50's. Haven't cruised Princess yet but someone else might be able to give you more info on that line. I've also found it tends to be a younger crowd on the 4-5 day cruises. Hope this helps.

so much depends upon what you are looking for. If you are looking for a lively, party cruise with great shows and nightlife then i would look into Carnival or RCCL.
If you are looking for a casual-elegant cruise that still has lots of activites and nightlife then look into Princess
If you want something laid-back, a bit more elegant and more of a "traditional" cruise experience then look into Celebrity or Holland America.
If you are looking for beautiful beaches and great shopping then pick an Eastern route.
If you want something a bit more active, more adventure then pick a Western route (swim with Sting Rays, climb waterfalls, snorkel, dolphin swims etc)
If you are looking to experience more of the local culture/history and flavor of the Caribbean then pick a Southern route.
I would recommend sitting down with a travel agent - one who has lots of cruise experience and just pick his/her brain.

Carnival is the one for you. They do have iteneraries (sic) for singles and that will keep you busy and, hopefully, happy and satisfied!

Good people sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.

Courage and perserverance have a magical talisman; before which difficulties disappear and obstacles vanish into the air.

Pick your company wisely! Hang around people who are going to help you become all God created you to be.
