I just completed a solo cruise on the Carnival Miracle. I traveled by myself. While the two companies you mentioned might indeed offer you a good vacation, I didn't not travel with a group, and I reserved directly through Carnival.
I had no difficulty meeting really nice people. I was never bored... On the contrary, this was the most fun vacation I have ever taken. I took advantage of the ship's excursions so I was with other people from the ship. The price of a ship's excursion, if you are traveling alone, is similar to what you might pay for an independent excursion, plus it can be safer. The staff and crew did everything they could to make sure people were having fun. You will not be alone. There will be other people traveling by themselves on the ship.
Don't hesitate to take a cruise by yourself on your own. I suggest shopping for the best price you can get if it is with the cruiseline or through a travel agency or with one of the groups you mentioned. Then go, have a ball. You will love it.
