Dream,

Speaking as a single guy, go on a cruise for the enjoyment first and NOT looking for a future girlfriend or even a wife otherwise you will be disappointed.

Second, here are 3 sites besides cruisemates that has single cruises.

Discount Cruises, Last Minute Cruises, Cruise, Cruise Line, Cruise Vacation

singles cruises, singles cruise, single cruises, single cruise, single travel - Singles At Sea

New England Sports & Adventure Resort, Berkshire Mountains, Kent, CT has a big single cruise in February (look in their cruise section)

Third, if you are looking for women who look like the swedish bikini team they will be rare, the women would look more like Walmart shoppers.

Good luck and enjoy your cruise.

My SIL and her girlfriends like Carnival. They say there are more singles on Carnival ships but I don't know if going on a cruise is a good way to meet that special someone. If you are on a cruise and meet that special someone and they live across the country, dating could be difficult. If you decide to go on a cruise, go just to have fun. If something develops all the better.

Default good singles cruises

You might want to try NCL Epic. They have the singles rooms and activities. No single supplement.

Default Cruise as Love boat?

You have much better chance to find someone special on "garbage" site as Match.com. Remember the people on the cruise are from different state, and not everyone is open for a long distance romance after the cruise or a short fling during the trip. If you are looking just for a romance, then almost any cruise is good, since there are more single women than men cruising, usually... Epic is really good, but it it will be even better if you just tried to have fun and enjoy your time on the cruise... Be active, socialize more and you will increase your chances to find a partner for romance.

Well, ah, do you want a cruise with a lot of single women who may or may not be a good match for you, or do you prefer a cruise with fewer single women but a better chance that one of them will be a match?

The truth is that you will find some single ladies travelling on every major cruise line, but every cruise line has a distinct style and personality that tends to draw people with certain personal traits and interests. Although you'll meet more single women travelling on a line that caters to the "singles" crowd, especially if you book a "singles" cruise through an agency that targets the "singles" crowd, you probably will find that many of the single folks on those cruises do not share your interests and do not mesh with your personality. If you pick a cruise line that is a good match for your personality and style and that offers activities that cater to your interests, however, the odds that the single women on board will be a good match improve dramatically.

So what do I recommend? Go into the travel section of your local bookstore (Borders, Barnes & Noble, etc.) or onto EBay and buy a travel guide to cruise lines and cruise ships. All of the major travel guides like Berlitz, Frommer's, and Fodor's have such an edition, and they tend to be pretty comparable. Take the guide home and read the descriptions of the lines to figure out which lines match your interests and your personality and style. The lines with median ages in the 40's or 50's tend to have a good spectrum, with passengers of all ages actually onboard.

When you actually go on the cruise, be sure to go to the ship's activities that interest you, whatever they may be, because that's where you'll find other passengers with similar interests. Likewise, be sure to take shore excursions that interest you in the ports of call rather than going ashore on your own because that's where you'll find other passengers with similar interests.

Finally, if you don't happen to meet the right young lady on your first cruise, try again. On any line, some cruises will have a lot of single ladies and other cruises will have relatively few.

Norm.

Default romance

So are the single women on cruises secretly hoping to find the man of their dreams on the cruise?
