I think you are right. We would have fun. I like to party and I do! But there is a difference between a red neck keg party and a nice cocktail party. (No offense to anyone) But I felt out of place on the Carnival ship because I did not have any tattoos or a NASCAR hat.
You have to compare similar ships, itineraries and dates to make a fair comparison. When you do, you will find Carnival even higher sometimes. Compare Fantasy to Sovereign, Fascination to Majesty. The Enchantment is nicer than either. Do the 4 if you can.
Here is a great pic of the Sovereign pool (same as Majesty)
Now here compare a day at sea of the two pooldecks from a similar angle. Notice the splash area around the perimeter of the pool. The Fantasy class pool is like climbing into a well. it looks like the public pool at the commuity center in mid-town. What is up with those ugly colors!?!?!?!
I can do with out the slide. I like to dual pools on the open deck instead.
