Default Single 40yr old man considering first cruise


I was wondering if you might be able to help, as I'm sure many of you have the inside track when it comes to cruising!

Basically, I'm a single 40yr old man, considering a cruise of a week or so next year. I've enjoyed having a look on the internet at different cruise lines, ships and itineraries, but I feel a bit blinded by all the choice. I do know that I am keen to avoid the Spring Break/Frat Boy young 20s scene, and while I enjoy the company of all ages, it would be great to have some lively nightlife with people my own age. I'm quite comfortable in black tie for a few evenings, but also happy with a less formal set up.

Must-haves: Reasonable price / single supplement, Good food, decent drinking options (pre-dinner/post-dinner/late), live music, big screen movies, outdoor pool, gym/exercise studio, activities where I can meet other travellers quite easily (e.g. wine tasting/food or cocktail making classes), coffee lounge where I can lose myself in a book/kindle. Casino would be cool too but not quite a must-have.

Can live without: Spa, rock-climbing / kids activities / Wifi / shopping

Budget: Ideally under $1200 for just the cruise.

Any advice greatly appreciated!
