I am a seasoned solo cruiser. Altough I check out the single events I have yet to meet anyone really interesting. I think there are a segment of us solo cruisers who just do not go to those.
I have generally been lucky with table mates and hopefully you will be as well; that is if your ship offers traditional dining instead of anytime dining.
I spend my time doing what I enjoy which is working out, reading in the sun, finding great beaches in port, etc. I have found it easy to meet people when I am interested in doing so. I also enjoy my time alone.
I am a wine drinker so I frequent the wine or champagne bar and make friends with the bartender. It's where I spend my happy hours and often have an after dinner drink.
I think solo cruising is a great experience and I am sure you will have a blast!
