Default Single Mature Gentlemen on Monarch 12/3/12?

I know this is last minute and I apologize if I'm posting at the wrong place (I also can't believe I'm doing this, but I love my mom) so here goes. I am cruising with my mother on Dec. 3, 2012 on RCCL Monarch of the Seas. My mother (77) has been widowed for 14 months after 59 years of marriage. Are there any single kind mature gentlemen going on this cruise that might like to just talk, dance, play cards, have dinner, etc. with her? Or maybe another lonely widow who would just like to share like conversation and perhaps make a new friend. This is all new to her (and to me). Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I'm also taking her with me on 2/13/13 on the Carnival Ecstasy.

Default Ruby

I singled on the Ruby Princess in Nov 2012 I loved it. I have singled on many cruises. Had no problem with any ship I sailed on.
Big Red Boat- (3 girls) 1993
American Hawaian Cruises (3 girls)1994
Celebrity (5 girls) 1995
Celebrity single 1996
Nordic Empress (4 girls) 1996
Celbrity 2003 & 2004 was married then
Majesty Of the Sea single 2010 2 times
Majesty of the Sea single 2011 2 times
Radiance of the Sea single 2011
Majesty of the Sea single 2012
Bahamas Celebration (3 girls) 2011
Princess Rudy single 2012

Bahamas Celebrations was the worst ship I have gone on. I would only
go back because of the price. But like they say. You get what you
pay for.

Aside from roll call meet and greets, I've gotten to know more people at karaoke and the piano bar than anywhere else on any cruise. (Dance clubs can work too but only if they mostly aren't crowded, or if you get out on the floor every single night and try to dance with everyone -- but I don't usually do that...) The vast majority of those people aren't singles, mind you, but they become your friends for the week.

Thanks, zgwortz! From now on, I'll be checking these places out when I want to inconspicuously look for some hopefully single guys! LOL. Now if only I had known this a dozen cruises ago, I would have been one very happy girl (well, maybe, hah)! Like you though, don't think I'm going to hit the dance club with the intent of having a personal meet and greet with every single guy there, haha. Not unless I redo my bucket list one day
