Mediocre, not great

Sail Date: November 22, 2007

Reviewed: 9 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Oceanview

Overall the ship is outdated and the common areas need to be cleaned in detail. The spa consists of a gym adjacent to a tiny steam room and sauna and a few showers with absolutely NO ammenities. The dining areas seem like a casino and the buffet food is less than spectacular. There's a vast array of shore excursions but also way too pushy with the sales of jewelry, art and aythinbg else they try to push on guests. Too sales-y.

Pros: Nightly shows are a good mix of comedy, magic and broadway type productions

Cons: Outdated ship, not very clean, no real spa or premium restaurant on this ship

Recommends Carnival Fantasy? No.

Ship Quality
Outdated, lightbulbs are filthy and there are no automated hand sanitizers.
Food and Dining
Hit or miss, some dinners are great - the buffet is just average. There is no high end restaurant on this ship.
Cabin / Stateroom
The size is nice, comfortable beds and bedding, large bathroom/shower, very clean.
Service and Staff
Misinformed staff, constantly got bad directions or information from staff. The waiters, housekeeping provided good service.
Good comedy shows, midnight shows, bands, dancers etc.. good production value.
Cozumel, Mexico
We visited the ruins at Tulum -- swam at the foot of the castle, it was AMAZING!
Don't Miss: THE BEACH!
