Default How much fun can a single have?

Just got back from a Carnival cruise out of Tampa. Went to Grand Cayman, Cozumel, and Nawlins, had a BLAST!!! I have absolutely NO complaints whatsoever.
I was going to go solo on Carnival's Guaranteed Share, but at the last minute, my nephew decided to go with me. Carnival gave him the same great rate ($649) that I got, and we got to room together. The first Carnival person we met at the cruise terminal upgraded our cabin twice, made my nephew a "past cruiser" (got us both into the "invitation only" parties, etc.) and treated us like royalty. Our cabin was huge, our room steward was the BEST, and we had a ball.
We went straight to the dining room, asked to be seated w/ other singles, and got a table w/ three single female nurses who cruise twice a year (to maintain their sanity). After dinner the first night, we all hit the casino where our 3 tablemates won $480 on a quarter slot machine! They bought champagne every night at dinner (I bought the wine) and
our cruise got progressively BETTER each day! We were planning on scuba diving in Grand Cayman, but couldn't - too many jellyfish in the water, according to the shore excursion folks. Toured the whole island in a cab, went to the town called "Hell" & sent all our friends postcards from Hell. Went diving in Cozumel over a WWII fighter plane in 40" of water, went sportfishing on a charter boat w/ two other shipmates, caught little tunas all afternoon. Cruising 50 miles up the Mississippi River to New Orleans was unbelievable! (lots of river traffic!)
Never been to New Orleans before, really enjoyed our 3 hour bus tour, shopped at Riverwalk til we were broke, fell in love (both of us did!) with a beautiful bar server from Estonia onboard the ship, got in GOOD with the casino manager (she is Polish, so is my nephew), had the best waiter (from Russia) I've ever had on 15 cruises, and I really don't know how we could have had a better time.
If you haven't already lapsed into a coma from reading this and would like to hear more, let me know.
If you're thinking about a cruise,
WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR????!!!!!!!!!!!!
