Not Bad...

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Fantasy | Sail Date:

First time taking a cruise and I can say it was good overall.

Been a first timer I felt there was a lack of guidance from the crew on where to go or what to do for someone like me. The crew were all VERY NICE and once you spoke to them but they could have been more proactive and they were NOT engaging for the most part.

The food was good overall however we were served old food on our last day where I had the runs and my boyfriend had to throw up as soon as he got in the cabin.

Overall a great experience and was happy.

Great family vacation

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Fantasy | Sail Date:

I traveled with my kids and parents, the experience was amazing, to be honest, i expected worse due to some reviews but i was pleasantly surprised.  The service was great, they really get great customer service training,  the food was good and restaurant options was great. The kids camp is a life saver, you can actually enjoy adult time while the kids are safely enjoying as well! 

I would def do it again!!

Amazing

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Fantasy | Sail Date:

We had the most amazing family vacation ever! This was a celebration for our 6 year old birthday. She loved her vacation as well as the camp carnival. The staff was very nice and professional. I think the food choices could have been somewhat better, but overall we had a great family vacation! Love

relaxing cruise

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Fantasy | Sail Date:

The cruise was excellent and so was the food.  I loved our cabin, had plenty of closet space and drawers.  The only thing that I did not like about this particular Fantasy Cruise was that for the past 15 cruises I have taken with Carnival I always bring my own brand of bottle water in my luggage and this time all of our water was confiscated.  I am not sure that I would want to go on another Carnival Cruise again if I can't take my own bottle water in my luggage.  They said I could take the water in my carry on bag, but I recently had surgery and my husband has a back problem, therefore, It is impossible for us to carry anything heavy by hand.  This is the first time I have been so disappointed with Carnival.

You can't get your liquor until the morning you leave

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Fantasy | Sail Date:

  Any liquor purchased in the duty- free or at the port of call are confiscated until the morning of departure. In the past it was returned the evening prior to departure.  No more. Getting past that, the cruise in general was very enjoyable. The shows were good and staff was very polite and accommodating. The food was good  there was something to eat practically twenty-four hours a day.  I'm looking forward to the next trip with Carnival.

First Time Cruiser

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Fantasy | Sail Date:

Was fun for a first time cruise experience. Certainly a young crowd and massive party ship. Good food and great service. Older boat but I guess we wouldn't know better never having been on a cruise before. There were some details we didn't know about or couldn't get the information on despite checking out the web site numerous times and even calling customer service before we departed. Including the nice surprise of airport check in desk .... which we would never even have known about had our luggage carousel not been right next to it. Carnival is good for a purpose but will probably try a different cruise line or experience next time.

Key West & Cozumel

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Fantasy | Sail Date:

This was a fun cruise. The stop in key West was a bit short but we still had enough time to do some shopping and visit some popular watering  holes. The ship did not rock at all and the good was great. Cozumel was beautiful and we had plenty of time to take advantage of shore activities. Overall it was a good cruise.

Fantasy 4/16

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Fantasy | Sail Date:

Overall the cruise was okay. The food was good. The pool was very small and the music at the pool was really loud. There was a small area that was for adults only but it was always packed. We couldn't get chairs. We were woken up before 7am every morning by some kind of loud noise. Pretty sunrises but not really what I wanted to be doing at 7am. We didn't enjoy Key West or Cozumel a ton. We've been to several islands and these don't compare at all. Overall I would rate the whole experience as a C.
