I am up many nights at 11pm, however I can assure you I would not be one of the 3 people in the disco
... no judgment... just not my thing. I used to cruise NCL, but not recently so my comments may not be representative of amount of activities on board. I do think it is safe to say that longer cruises, regardless of the line tend to be a tad more sedate than the 3/4 day party barge trips to the Bahamas.
As to the inside-porthole-balcony debate, it all comes down to what you are willing to go with. I have cruised in balconies many more times than insides, although my last cruise through the Canal was in an inside, absolutely fine with me. If I am on a ship the only time you will find me in the cabin is when I am either sleeping or showering and that is the same whether I am in an inside or a suite. I do balconies only as a compromise as in doing it "her way"
I'll leave the choice of cruise lines with I am not a huge fan of Carnival, YMMV.
