You can have drunks and partiers on any ship it just depends who is sailing. Carnival got a bad rap many years ago but they have done a great job in erasing that image. I used to hate Carnival but lately I have grown to really like them. You will have a great time. However if its too much for you...in the future you might be more suited for Regent Sever Seas Cruises....smaller ships and a very quiet atmosphere.

I agree Carnival has really improved. We usually go on the 8-9 cruises so maybe that eliminates some of the party animals. We went on a RCCL with my friends last fall because that is all they like.Well that is where all the animals are, myfriends said they were used to that is how it always is. Not for me thank you very much! Tom

I have not cruised on RCCL but a few of my older friends liked it. I like Carnival due to the fact that it is family oriented. Thomas were on the Cape do you live? I am off Country Club near Verdow field.

garyg, I would not think it will be full of drunks or 24/7 parties. There are a few partiers in the Disco and other places, but nothing like that. Other than a spring break cruise, or a short regional cruise, it is pretty tame.

I have been on Carnival twice. The first time, it was in April and there seemed to be a lot of children. No one enforced the "adults only" pool rule, which was a little annoying. But I never saw too many "partiers." This time, I went in May, and there were barely any children. Again, no real problem with partiers, although there were a few obnoxious people who liked to commandeer the entire piano bar for themselves. The ships are so large that if people are annoying you in a particular bar or lounge, you can find another one and be just as happy. One thing that I marveled about was that, on a cruise with so many passengers, we could be walking in a stairwell or through a lounge and not see a soul. And in our staterooms, we never heard a peep from outside or other rooms. I think you're going to have a great time.

I am really looking forward to my cruise now thanks to all you positive comments. We are travelling all the way from UK so it would have been easier to cancel and take a mediterranean cruise but it will all go ahead now. I suppose MED to us is like Carribean to you!!

Seems to me someone should prefer "Carnival, the NUN Ship".

If you come over with an open mind that is most important. But i'm sure you will enjoy your cruise, Carnival has something for all ages.Let us know how it went when you return. Tom

I typically take spring and summer cruises depending on when my wife can take vacation. I have been on many carnival cruises with the spring break crowd and still found them pleasurable and I hate unruly people running amok. Yes, you will see the occasional intoxicated person and you will hear lots of music while on the ship. You are not likely to be disturbed whatsoever in your stateroom. The only time someone is going to knock on your door is if you called room service.
