Each ship has its own flavor. If you leave from Galveston, expect 90% Texans (scary).
If from Port Everglade, more of a mix - North, Northeast, Midwest, Europe. If you travel in late summer, expect lots of kids and teenagers
Maybe you care less about people, and more about the quality of food.
Decide what your priorities are. Then ask someone who's been on that line. The quality of different amenities varies, and each cruise line has its plusses and minuses.
Most cruise ships have Internet service but it's expensive and not always available at sea.
However, most ports now have Internet cafes which are quite affordable--$5 an hour, for instance, in Cozumel, right on the dock. You can check your email anywhere on www.e-mailanywhere.com. It's FREE.
One last suggestion.
If you like to speak, consider being a presenter on a cruise ship.
As I say in my ebook, "How to Get to Present on a Cruise," being an enrichment gives you extra visibility and maneuverability for socializing, as well as new people to tell about your services.
