In the late 80's I went on Carnival Celebration and noticed a slight shift toward less party time and new attitudes from the cruise line. I repeated the Celebration the next year and again was pleasantly surprised. I stopped cruising due my Mothers illness. I next cruised in 2004 on Carnival Spirit and noticed a huge difference in the experience. The parties of old were gone. The cruise ship was filled with families and the atmosphere was nicer. What a nice difference. If there were an award for most changed cruise line then Carnival would win it. I still hear people with that attitude that Carnival is all party. I bet if they would try it they might change their mind.

I couldn't agree more Laura. As I have stated time after time I have yet to find the party that one speak of.
