Any opinions on the 3 day Ensenada cruise on the Carnival Inspiration? What kind of demographic is typical on this ship? I have heard that Carnival cruises are more like nonstop party boats..is this accurate?

Three days on a Carnival cruise is a non-stop frat party.

Not really, I have been on this ship and it dosen't seem to be all about party. Although, they do have formal nights where you need to bring something to wear (I didn't bring anything formal).

Not as nonstop as in years past, but any 3 day cruise to Ensenada is going to 24 hour partying...

formal night, 3 day cruise? I don't think I have seen a 3 day cruise with a real formal night for years. When was the last time you have been on this cruise?

The most they'll have a on a three night is a "dressy" night where people will actually shower and put on slacks and a Cuban shirt instead of shorts and a tank top for dinner. (Now I remember the #1 reason I'll never cruise a mass market line again...)

I have found that the shorter the cruise....and/or weekend cruises are the party cruises.

We went on the Carnival Facination in Feb..5 days and while everyone had a great time, it wasn't really a "party" atmosphere.

Even on our "girls" 3 nighter on the lowly Royal Caribbean Monarch of the Sea....yes indeed there was a formal night and yes indeed people dressed for it.

You'll probably find more up to day on specific cruises over on Cruise Reviews, Cruise Deals and Cruises - Cruise Critic than here.

On ANY cruise line, the shorter the cruise, the more fun the passengers will try to "fit in" to their short time onboard. It's not a "Carnival" thing!

Carnival is no more a "party boat" than RCI or NCL.....if folks are having a good time, you don't need to join in. There are plenty of things....both active and sedate...for everyone!

5 night cruises are certainly not as party type as the 3 and 4 day, especially the 3 night ones. As for formal night, yes, they have them but very few really dress up. I have been on a few, RCI, Carnival and a few lines that no longer do the short cruises, I am not sure I have ever seen a tux and I haven't seen very many gals dressed in formal wear. I guess it depends on what you call formal?

Yep, on all of them you'll spend half your time standing in lines.
