I really enjoyed the cruise. The only complaint would be the food on the dinner menu. Most of the nights were the same menu. Would have like to have more seafood on the menu. The staff was very friendly and kept my room nice and neat. Can't wait to book another trip. Happy Camper!!!Happy

Overall the cruise was great. The staff was awesome and friendly and kept us alert of anything that we needed to know.

 

The only thing that I didn't like was the food in Good Eats, it was edible but can use makeover...The desserts tasted frozen and overall were not good at all.

 

The enjoyed the fruit it was always fresh.

The staff was wonderful, everything was always kept clean. The food was delicious and plentiful. The burgers were good, the wait was to long for the formal dining room night.

My first cruise

The comedy show was by far the best experience I had on the ship. The food had good days and bad days. I wish that there was more space in the pool area, the pool was very small and I was unable to get in. Overall I enjoyed my time.

Carnival Cruise

Overall cruise was good. Food choices were great, and could always find activities to do. Beach at Half Moon Cay was nice and our excursion in Nassau was lots of fun. Our room was great, and not overly small. Overall we had a good time.

 This cruise is as basic as you can get.  Instead of the luxurious feel, everything looks kind of trashy. If you buy a special service, like FASTER TO FUN, don't expect it to be followed. Almost have to force it.

A nice experience to have this cruise

Best part was the service, which made us very comfortable like a home, keeping the environment clean and easy to live with.

 

Some things you may improve were shows in the theater, you can play classic movies, "Affair to Remember", or concerts.., the amplifier was too loud that we could not stand the noise and have to leave, the shows were not interesting to us any way!

Family Cruise for first time

Ship: Carnival Fantasy | Sail Date:

We just made our first cruise. It was great experience. Liked the route Bahamas and half moon cay. Entertainment on ship itself was ok, but half moon cay was awesome beach with blue water and white sand.  Went snorkeling and staff out there were very helpful.  Was too hot since its August but food & activities on the island were awesome.  

 

I bought all shore excursions through carnival, no hassle if you book through them. You can sit back and relax and take part in the activity and enjoy it. They tend to sell out so book those tickets asap.  Atlantis was ones in a life time experience with the deep water dolphin swim, my teen age kids enjoyed it. 

 

 There was a little bit of issue when we boarded back from Bahamas their computer system didnot work and we had to stand in a long long line for couple hours.  Not worth it, should have stayed longer at Atlantis and taken a taxi.

 

Very limited veggi food choices on the main Laydo dinning area, didnot get clear instructions on indian food choices in the dinner hall and missed it first 2 days. But the 3rd day sit down dinner was awesome with lentil, tika masala and papad. Awesome service.

 

We had a grand suite which is great, nice and roomy. But the additional sofa bed was squicky. Kids didn't like it.  Ship itself is getting old, shopping on ship is ok, 

 

Not a lot of activities for grown up kids or teenage as well.

 

Over all Loved it, will take a different Carnival ship in a few years. Enjoyed!

Ask for hair dyer and ice bucket

Don't miss brunch on the day at sea. The coffee is special. The shower was the biggest on that I've ever had in a cabin.
