Default Another ? from single guys - 1st time cruising

I'm going on my first cruise as a single guy with one of my friends on Jan 28 (RC Mariner of the Seas). We're both 34 and just looking to have a fun week away from home. Are there generally plenty of "singles" on these ships? Do the cruise lines usually put together a function one night to try to get the singles together? Don't get me wrong, we'll party and have fun with anybody - couples, younger, older - but some single women around our age would be a big bonus. Any help you could give us would be huge.

[quote="OpusOne"]are there generally plenty of "singles" on these ships? Not from my experiences. It is mostly couples. I haven't done the late night disco/bar scene. I'm sure it gets better after I go to bed.
Do the cruise lines usually put together a function one night to try to get the singles together? Yes, they do have a singles meet and mingle. I have even been to singles only lunches.
I think you and your friend will enjoy yourselves!

Almost always there is a singles get-acquainted party the first night.

After boarding, the maitre d' is usually available in one of the dining rooms to assist with seating requests. Ask him to try and seat you with other singles.

And be sure to go to Cruisemates' singles section and read my articles on singles cruising. I think you will find lots of valuable tips.

Have a great cruise and be sure to post here when you return and tell us all about it.
