I'll make this short and sweet. As a fellow New Jerseyan, I can tell you this. I'm married, but when I did the "single" thing on "CARNIVAL", I had blast. I met a really nice young lady from "Flint, michigan", and had a good time together. We were never drunk. As a matter of fact, three of us were on the "FANTASY" and my other friend actually met his wife in the cruise...HOW COOL IS THAT, and I USED to think that only happened on the love boat. Sorry, the point is, it's what you make of it and want it to be....you can have a blast without being trashed.
