We have been told Carnival would be very similar to what we experienced on Royal if we went on 7 days or longer. Apparently Carnival's shorter cruises can more closely resemble a floating party.
You will find that Royal Caribbean short cruises will draw a different crowd also. If a 3/4 day cruise is only $300 it is more affordable for younger people, and those that normally wouldn't be able to cruise. Also, they don't have to take much time off work/college. You will get a different crowd on cheap, short cruises.
