The rooms were clean and roomy, and the food was very tasty. We really missed the baked Alaskian Show in the formal dining room this year, but from what I understand, they stopped this due to safety issues.

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
More options for desserts and starters would have been nice. It seems like the same choices were available each day. The food was very good though and the main entrees varied each day.

More variety - possibly a comedian.

My 15 year old really did enjoy the O2 club where he could go at any time to hang out with his friends. The other club available for my 12 year old was not as available. Half the time that we checked that hangout room, it was closed, so he mainly hung out with us.

Service and Staff

Everyone was very friendly.

Ship Quality

Nice layout. We especially enjoyed the new slides added to the back of the boat.

Cabin / Stateroom

Very nice and clean except for the outside window that we paid extra to view out of. It was rather dirty and hard to see out of.

The Deluxe Beach/Snorkeling excursion on the Fury was the best value for the excursions offered on the cruise, but from what I understand, if you are not afraid to linger off on your own, it is cheap to take a taxi to a private island like Mr. Sanchos Beach or Paradise Island. If you have been on the Fury Catamarian in the past, be aware that their margaritas were very watered down this time and not strong like they used to be. They cut back on the liquor but not on the price!
Don't Miss: The shops by the port were very reasonably priced, but be sure to shop around, because all of the merchants had similiar items, but the prices varied!

Pros: The food and staff

Cons: The long lines at the Lido Deck buffet line!; Less expensive excursion options, A comedian show would have been nice instead of all similiar dancing and singing shows featuring the same cast.

Recommends Carnival Fantasy? Yes!
