Carnival Fantasy

March 2016 - 4 Night Western Caribbean (Miami Roundtrip) Cruise on Carnival Fantasy

It Was a Fun Ship

It was perfect for a quick getaway. The itinerary was just right for relaxing by the pool with drinks combined with sightseeing on the shore excursions. It was easy to meet and talk to new people. I can't say enough about the staff - the stateroom steward, the wait staff in the dining room, and the bartenders and servers. All super friendly, attentive and very helpful. Plenty to do at night. The food's not gourmet, but I really enjoyed dinners in the dining room. The only down side, the rooms were small and a bit dated. But clean, and well looked after. It was my 3rd Carnival cruise and I'm going back in November.

elgordo40's Tips

Costa Maya (Mahahual), Mexico - Loved everything about it. Took the Catamaran/snorkeling excursion. Fantastic experience. The little beach town is exactly what you picture an unspoiled Mexican beach town to be. Any restaurant on the beach will have unbelievable sea food.
Harvest Caye, Belize - Be prepared for your stop at Harvest Caye (Belize). Excursions from here are difficult (long days out with not much food available). It is more "Disney" than Belizean.It seemed to me to be Norwegian's attempt to keep you on their island where you had to pay for food, drinks, etc. Difficult to get over to the mainland and the excursions were not appealing.
Cozumel, Mexico - Went on our own. Rented a jeep and a guide. Went over to far side of island for beaches and food/drinks. A highlight of the week.
Norwegian Escape Norwegian Escape - It's a LARGE ship with a lot of people. You won't be able to find much alone time (except in your cabin). There is a lot to do on board.
Cozumel, Mexico - If you want sightseeing - go to Tulum. If you want to relax - go to Paradise Beach.
Carnival Fantasy Carnival Fantasy - Stay up late and listen to the bands. It's easy to meet people.
