 Propulsion issues prevented us from reaching our destination of Cozumel. The captain and staff did make the most of it and rerouted us to Key West. We were  compensated generously for the inconvenience. My only complaint would be the Lido deck DJ. I have been on many cruises and they were more interactive and entertaining.   Our dining staff and housekeeping were amazing and the ship was kept very clean.

Best crew in the fleet

Although the Fantasy is the oldest operating ship in the Carnival fleet the recent dry-dock upgrades have resulted in many improvements for this old lady. The crew was the best in the fleet after 30 cruises with Carnival.

While we enjoyed our cruise I will shop around next time.  I am not totally opposed to Carnival but we are wondering if the food is better on other cruises.  Is the gambling more fair?

My favorite part of the cruise was the feeling of being completelypampered for the entire cruise. The shows were amazing, the nightly dinning was top notch and I do believe that our Steward was a ninja, our cabin was always like it was the first time we walked into it. Had an amazing time!

We had a great time. Two days at sea with two days in port were just right. Plus 5 days meant we didn't overeat. The ship was nice and very clean. We had no complaints. Even getting off the ship was speedy when we got home.

Mobile to Progresso and Cozumelcamp

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Ship was nice.  Staff was very nice and professional as usual.  Empress deck proved to be a good fit, since we always do the stairs.  Was disappointed the dress code has been relaxed.  Jeans, t-shirts and ball caps do not add anything to a fine dining experience.  Also disappointed the steak and lobster night has been eliminated.  Seas were very calm.  Very little to do in Progresso, a very poor situation.  Cozumel  is pretty but very commercial.

I was pleasantly surprised about the entire trip.  The beds were great,

 the entire staff was  unbelievable.   I don't know how they do it.  Loved the adult only area.  Spa prices were not reasonable, would have enjoyed having a massage but the prices were over the top.
