This was our first cruise over all we had a good time the staff was amazing but as for the Fantasy ship I think for as much money that you pay there should be more activities to do without having to pay extra and the food in the dinning room was kinda blan the pool was too small for that size boat we will probably cruise again but on a bigger boat

Compared to my previous Carnival cruise aboard the ship Paradise, I really enjoyed it. The ship better maintained. The zatesroom small but comfy. The house cleaning was great.

I didn't enjoy the food so well, it seemed to be low class  grade.

The parking deckat mobile was small and time consuming getting into.

Overall though, it was a 7 on a scale of 10.

Great for smokers and meat eaters

The ports of call were the best part of the cruise. The meal choice oddly enough was limited if you don't eat beef or pork. I ate sandwiches most of the trip unwillingly. The smell of smoke pretty much engulfed the midship as the casino isn't closed off like I've seen on other ships. Why the gift shop, where there's a candy shop resides that attracts mostly kids, is in the middle of the casino on one side and clubs on the other. Just seemed like bad placement when looking at families waiting to get into the small space. The entertainment was okay. Comedy shows were extremely crude and hardly funny. It was a nice getaway, but we won't sailing on this ship again and plan to try out Royal Caribbean to compare. THE upside, which we weren't expecting--- AN awesome and knowledgeable shopping expert on board that helped us save on things we were looking for and some  we learned to love and purchase!

I have been on 5 cruises and this ship is the most outdated of them. We have always had morning and evening services and on this cruise our Stewart asked us if we wanted morning or evening service so we picked evening but would have rather had both. Then on the last day I was checking under the bed to see if we missed packing up anything and found hidden behind the containers of extra bedding someone else's underwear, you talk about being grossed out I still feel dirty 3 days later! We went on this one because it was closest to us but I will make the longer drive for a newer ship next time!

Not a happy Cruiser

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Family (young children)

Our ship was scheduled to leave Saturday at 4pm. we did not leave until well after 6pm. Upon entering our room and getting settled, there were another persons bathing suit bottoms in our shower what let me believe my shower was not cleaned upon my arrival. The food in the Celebration dining room was just mediocre nothing to brag about. We were scheduled to arrive in Costa Maya at 12pm and leave at 8pm. We arrived at 3pm and it took well over an hour to get off the boat and we had to be back on the bout by 9:30. SO we did not receive a fair share of our time back. Camp Carnivals hours of operation were not accommodating and neither was the Ocean C camp for ages 12-14.  Overall the best parts of my trip were

Favorite part of the cruise was the excursions and the serenity deck. My husband and I did a catamaran sail and snorkel and visited Chacchoben Mayan ruins. While at the ruins we saw a LOT of wild monkeys playing and swinging in the treetops!! Overall, great food and drinks, very friendly and helpful stuff, and talented musicians and comedians!!! We had a wonderful time!!!

My children really enjoyed Hasbro the Game Show, Bingo, and the Waterpark. My husband and I enjoyed the delicious food and participating in the variety of events with our kids. Our excursion was amazing! We will definitely recommend Carnival to others! My only recommendation would be to have additional movie options that are more family friendly.
