Just right!

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Fantasy | Sail Date: Jul 18, 2014


If you're in Virginia, there aren't many summer cruises to pick from on the east coast unless you want to fly. We went on a 25th Anniversary and drove to Charleston, which wasn't a bad drive. The Fantasy was an older ship, but in very, very well maintained condition and just small enough that you didn't spend your vacation trying to find your way around. Cabins, halls, decks--everything was as clean as any other ship I've been on. The price was good and the five days went by quickly. We got the Cheers Beverage Plan--a must do if you're concerned about how many drinks at $8.75 you're going to have. The food was good, service was excellent and this is a great deal if you live within driving distance of Charleston. If you can get to Charleston the day before, see the town and spend the night, it's better still.

This was our 2nd cruise. The other being on another cruise line. We prefer other cruise line 100%. We realize it is July and school was out, but this was a bit ridiculous. Kids unsupervised all hours of night. Running through hall ways, screaming, yelling. Pushing buttons on elevators. Pool was way too crowded. Coffee was terrible. Dining room was a joke because of wait time. Entertainment was a disappointment. This was disappointing. Most pleasant part of the trip were the different people we met. Enjoyed the time spent on lido deck. ( smoking side). The fantasy is not in our future plans.

Too many money making schemes

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Fantasy | Sail Date: Jun 27, 2014


We were disappointed on this cruise.  There is too much down time filled with only money making schemes.  I don't consider "sales" in the shops onboard to be an activity.  Or bingo games where you can win 10K if a miracle occurs.  Having to win Bingo on a powerball number AND under 45 numbers means no one wins it and Carnival knows it.  If you don't like to be drunk or lay at the pool, there is nothing to do.  I doubt too many guests want to buy fine art or listen to Andrew ramble on about buying tanzanites or diamonds.  The service in the Celebration dining room was incredibly slow.  We went on Elation in 2012 and had excellent dining service.  If you're going to offer anytime dining, it needs to be on par with the scheduled dining.  I didn't get a discount to have anytime dining.  On the last morning of the cruise after our suitcases were taken, my husband was told he couldn't wear a tank top in the dining room.  We didn't have our suitcases so we had to eat at the buffet.  After seeing people break rules in the dining room even on elegant night, it pissed me off that we were turned away even though I can wear a tank top just not my husband(makes no sense).  I know there have to be rules but to enforce them an hour before the cruise is over and allow people to dress like pigs all week seems ridiculous.  More than likely it's a way to get people off the ship more quickly even though it took hours longer than it should have to get off.  I noticed there was no attempt to monitor luggage numbers causing people in front of us to be 22 when we were 15.  Because it seems Carnival doesn't care, they just want everyone off so the next victims can get on and spend money.  Royal Caribbean doesn't have nearly as much downtime or poor service.  No more Carnival.

Nothing to do!

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Fantasy | Sail Date: Jun 27, 2014


This cruise was not great.  We have cruised before.  Carnival has cut down the number of activities.  If you like to spend money you can buy art, buy bingo cards, buy diamonds.  But if you expect Carnival to entertain you, then forget it.  There are comdians at night that are great but don't miss any performances because there is nothing else.  Even the musical show was boring.  I ended up watchign Ellen in my cabin during the day.  If you like to be drunk and lay at the pool then great because that's all there is to do all day.  I can do that at home and so can most people.  Anytime dining means it will take you 2 hours to eat dinner.  It causes you to then miss some activities which as I mentioned isn't recommended.  If you miss the comedy show it's back to bingo for you.  Freeport is a below average beach town.  Very much below.  Save your money for Nassau.  This ended our Carnival cruises.  Gotta switch to Royal Caribbean.

All sorts of little stuff goes wrong

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Fantasy | Sail Date: Jun 22, 2014


All whole bunch of little things should have been better.  Any one could have been excusable, but compounded together are too much:

First, the 1 pool and hot tubs are  too small: you can never do anything but stand in the water because of all the people.

The alcohol is not consistent.  Two of the exact same drinks will never taste the same.

The casino rules change per dealer:  some will show the burn card, others will give you time to surrender in BJ, others go too fast.

The lines were a little too long: like Carnival doesn't know that 4:45 pm EVERYDAY was a peak buffet time so enough staff wouldn't show up till 6pm.

Nothing started quite on time.

The music in the clubs and decks was just too loud:  you couldn't have a conversation on the decks. Really loud music is ok for the clubs, but not the deck areas.  Even in the clubs it was excessive: people would cover their ears and leave.

The food was hit or miss.

Positively, I think the boat is well decorated and the room staff great.  Camp Carnival is VERY well done: it gives the kids a time to have kids only time and the staff is very professional and fun.

Family Vacation Fun

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Fantasy | Sail Date: Jun 22, 2014


Overall, our experience was favorable.  However,we found the area very confusing to get to the parking area and board the ship in Charleston.  Likewise, getting off the ship and back to our car was also confusing.  Our car was parked close to the terminal, and we could have walked as we carried our own luggage off the ship.  But, we were directed to stand in a long line and board a van that drove us about 1/2 block into a building where we had to wait for our luggage and then walk out to our car.  Both on and off the ship were confusing and time consumming.

 

We had the late dinner seating to allow us more time to clean up after our excursions.  Dinning staff were excellent!!!  But the late dining hour meant that we could not attend the family friendly shows that were presented while we were at dinner.  Our younger family members could not attend the late shows because of the xrated content.  Suggest having some family friendly shows scheduled for both early and late diners.

 

We felt safe letting our teen agers come and go on the ship although they were not overly excited about the activties planned for their age groups.  You might survey these groups to see what activities they would enjoy.

 

I would not choose Carnival for an adult only cruise, but it worked fine for our familly to take the grandchildren on their first cruise.  I find smaller ships and more adult activites work better for me.

not what I was expecting

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Fantasy | Sail Date: May 31, 2014


My first cruise with Carnival was a fairy tale. I was sooo impressed with every detail. This time I felt like I was just a number going through.

The ship was way too crowded, not enough seats to accomadate the guests in smoking area and on decks.

Only one smoking area, with not enough seats, and if you did find an empty seat, it was beeing saved for some one, and music that was so loud you could not have a conversation with some one who was beside of you.

When I was in the casino using the slot machines, my husband was with me and he was told he was keeping others from playing (he was not playing, just spending time with me) so he sat in the window and he was told he could not do that either.

7 fantastic days

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Fantasy | Sail Date: May 31, 2014


2nd time on this cruise. Smaller ships seem to be much more social than the big guys. This cruise starts with 2 days at sea. This forces everyone to unwind and relax. Grand Turk island followed by Half Moon Cay is awesome. Beaches are pristine and the water is turquoise. Food is fantastic and the Carnival crew is outstanding. My wife and I recommend this cruise for all.

Much Needed Vacation

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Fantasy | Sail Date: May 21, 2014


My overall experience on this Carnival Fantasy cruise was excellent.  It exceeded my expectations in every way: the staff was polite and helpful in every situation; the ship was immaculate; the food was gourmet (in the dining room) and the stops (Coco Cay and Nassau) were pleasant.  Considering everything, the price was unbeatable.  I will share my experience with friends for years to come. Thank you, Carnival Cruises, for making such beautiful memories!

82 Tips for Carnival Fantasy

Go to the Serenity Deck if you want to escape the noise and activity on the Lido Deck. Get to know the staff... they can make or break your experience.... Go watch the stars on the Lido deck late at night... and awaken early to catch the sunrise!

The pizza in the pizza/deli area of the jubilee dining room was excellent. Except for the lounge chair incidents, the crew were A-1 professionals.

Check out the back of the ship where only 21 and over are allowed; it's a nice break from children and includes ample chairs and 2 hot tubs.

For singles travelling alone and not wanting to interact a lot with children, find the Serenity (all adult) section of the ship. Lots of peace and quiet!

Don't bother going to the main dining room for meals. The Lido deck has just as good a food.

The ship was small as usual they need to create more music then the usual allow people to bring there own music censored music that is because of children on board. Serve more than fries and burgers everyday that was annoying get a better menu already that's my second time on this ship Not happy.

Take the stairs instead of the elevator. Work off some of those calories from all the great food! We did and hopefully didn't put on too many extra pounds!

Try the formal breakfast at least once on your trip!!

The omelettes for breakfast were the best!

all the food is good but if you want to be treated like a king and queen dont miss dinner and breakfast in the dining room,thats something to remember.

for dinner always go to the dining room. the food is awesome and there is something different every night

Loved the gym, the spa and the free seminars held by the personal trainers.

Do not miss the dinners at Jubilee Dinning Room

MAKE ELEVATORS WITH NUMBERS NOT JUST NAME OF FLOORS

Find the Serenity deck early to escape the relentless, thunderous music that is everywhere. Not a cruise for seniors.

Loved the bartenders who served us by the pool! They were so much fun and so cute! The bars and nightlife were really fun and the girls in our group felt at ease and safe.

DONT GO ON CARNIVAL IT SUCKS!!! There's a tip for you.

No short lines on this ship. We were packed to the walls.

There are no short lines on this ship. We were packed like sardines.

There are 5 buffet lines for each meal, if you look 1 or 2 will be short.
