Good, it was our first cruise, other than the excursion disappointment, (I doubt that I will ever book another excursion on the cruise line) it was good. The stateroom was fine, bed was pretty good, steward did a good job and there was always PLENTY of good food to eat. Most of the shows were good, however, the last show of the Fantacy dancers was too risque for the young audience. I was sitting next to a 14 year old girl and she was apalled at some of the "dance moves." I also heard some teenagers remarking that the "Broadway" show was too risque for the younger people in attendance when the girl's costumes were ripped off.
Other than that, pretty good.

Some of the dances/entertainment was to risque for children. I heard comments on that several times from passengers

Service and Staff

Anytime we asked a question of someone that wasn't directly related to the station they were staffing, we were referred to the pursers desk...the wait at the pursers desk was always about 5-10 minutes and at times the attendents were rude.

Shower curtain was a pain, always had to wipe down the floor after a shower, a shower door would be very helpful

Although the excursion staff caused us to miss our excursion we went on shore anyway and did some shopping. The shopping was excellent, and Jason did a great job of helping us find what we were looking for at this port
Don't Miss: Everythings seemed to be a plus at this port, although I did hear some complaints about how peoples excursions were handled.

Our excursion, the Bicycles, Caverns and Beach were somewhat of a disappointment, the caverns weren't at all like what we saw in the brochure on line and the bikes were in ill repair (mine had a flat tire and they just put air in it, and then it was going flat again by the end of the tour) and we were promised a granola bar and soft drinks...we had one offer of a soda out of a pre-opened 2 liter bottle that the tour guide poured in to a plastic cup after he'd been handling the rocks in the caverns...the granola bar was never mentioned, however, we were told we could buy food at a restaurant at the beach where he took us, didn't look like much of a restaurant to us.
Don't Miss: Didn't see or hear of a "don't miss" on this port...

Pros: The dining experience was SPECTACULAR! Our waiter Bart, was amazingly accomodating and the food was fabulous! We met some very nice people.

Cons: They changed the time of our clear kyak and snorkel excursion, which we were really excited about. We heard about the change 15 minutes before departure, scrambled as quickly as we could, however, we missed it and were chastised by staff for not ASKING if the time had changed...grr POOR Cust. Serv.

Recommends Carnival Fantasy? Yes!
