5 Night Western Caribbean (New Orleans Roundtrip)
Sail Date: October 04, 2008
Ship: Carnival Fantasy
Cabin Type: Inside
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 9 years ago

The ship and crew left a lot to be desired. The crew was not polite and not helpful.
We had problems before the cruise began. We were to leave at 4pm and the ship didn't sail until after midnight due to technical problems. We voiced our complaints and they went unheard and unresolved.
The food was cold nightly and had to be sent back at least twice before it was somewhat satisfactory.
This was our first cruise and other passengers who had sailed before were stating that this was the worst cruise they had ever been on, and not to let this cruise stop us from taking another cruise.
There was a stench onboard and several passengers were wearing mask. We were told that a sewage pipe or line had burst. It did smell like raw sewage.
We enjoyed the comedy act on board the ship and Cozumel was beautiful. Please take an excursion when you visit Cozumel. We did the snorkeling and horseback riding. It was great!

The food was horrible, plus it was cold every night! We would send it back at least twice before it would come back somewhat satisfactory.

There was some type of stench that was horrible onboard. We were on the main deck and other passengers in another area were saying that they could smell it on their deck. We were told there was a break in the sewage line.........
