I think you will be ok. I sailed last May with my two kids (no DH) but I did link my dinner reservation with other friends I met from the DIS on the first cruise I took. I am pretty sure they will sit you with other single parents/grandparents sailing solo with kids. I was nervous sailing without my DH but in the end, was really nice. No stress in having to figure out what he wanted to do - it was all my choice, my decision. I really enjoyed it! is there an FE list already? I might have missed the link reading through previous posts. Thanks! found some other ideas. We went to Stingray City in 2009 - I think with Capt Marvin. Was a GREAT tour! I think I did it with DCL and only took my DD who was 7 at the time. She was scared at first and then once she got in the water, got over it quickly. I was tempted to do that again but both kids want to swim with the dolphins so leaning towards that in GC. I stayed in an inside room last year with both kids. I loved that it forced me to get out and enjoy the ship. It was a bit cramped (me and 2 kids, one of which is a preteen girl) but manageable and would do it again if the price was right. The first time we sailed, DS was 4 and DD was 7. We had a verandah and no problems. The deck is high, just be mindful not to leave the door unlocked when you aren't out there. the locks are very tricky (even for adults) so no chance the 3.5 yr old would figure it out. We are booked in a verandah and am looking forward to the morning coffee (and evening glass of wine) out there! Need to look into Chankannab Park - seems like a popular option!
