Hmmm ok thank you. I might take the luxury ones by myself. I've never heard of Princess. Thank you

Never witnessed a brawl in the nightclub on any cruise ship

Been on Carnival many times, it is convenient more than anything else. No complaints, but I am a pretty easy going kind of guy anyway, and on vacation on a cruise, I have fun wherever we sail.

I am going to do the all you can drink thing maybe drink my way to HELL if we go.

There are vidoes on You Tube of at least three separate brawls on Carnival ships. This one is a classic:

we have cruised over 25 times and I have never seen or heard of any brawls. In fact I haven't seen to many really drunk people on ships. Oh sure, there have been a few, including my grandson in law, but mostly people are just having a good time. Every cruise line appeals to certain people. I don't think there is a best or a worst line, it depends on budget, personality and what one wants to get from their cruise experience.

Google "Cruise Ship Brawl" and you'll find video evidence of them--pretty much limited to two lines, pretty easy to figure out which ones. I'll give you a hint, they aren't Regent or Crystal. Or are you saying that the videos are "staged?"

Oh heavens, you misunderstood my response: I am simply saying, I have never seen that many drunks on any cruise, but I am not saying it doesn't happen. of course, like anywhere else, a sporting event, a neighborhood, or whereever, these things do happen, but they are not common place and no, they would not likely to happen on Crystal or even Oceana. I certainly wasn't doubting what you posted, not by any means. I don't know why you thought I was...

I saw far too many drunks on my RCCL cruise. Adults acting like 15 year old's who were given the keys to dad's liquor cabinet while their parents were away for the weekend. No thanks. I prefer to cruise with civilized people.

I have never witnessed brawl or even anything close to it in 20+ years of cruising.

I have witnessed them at Sporting events, some more than others.....and the crowds are FAR WORSE there as far as bad behavior.

There are drunks on a cruise ship. I am probably one of them most of the time. And I have fun, so do those around me, (except that fat pig faced woman who never smiled) As for brawls, I won't avoid the clubs just caused it happened in the past.
I noticed on the link above that it involved 18 year olds at 3 AM. That is part of the problem right htere.
Also that they were escorted off to jail at the next port.

Guess they did not make it to Hell......

There are no drunks on the cruises I go on. People drink but practice self-moderation.

They don't need alcohol to have a good time.
