5 Night Western Caribbean (New Orleans Roundtrip)

Ship: Carnival Fantasy
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Traveled As: Couple

This is our second time cruising with Carnival and 10th cruise overall. The ship was older, but kept very clean. The staff was very friendly. The food was satisfactory, but nothing spectacular. Not a lot of variety at the daily buffet. The nightly entertainment was a bit disappointing. There were only 2 shows out of the 5 nights of our cruise in the main theater/lounge. Captain and crew were very friendly.

When activities/talks were scheduled for a specific time they generally started late. Such as the debarkation talk at 11am did not start until 11:20 because they played BINGO first (which was scheduled to start at 10:30 and didn't start until 11am).

We went on a Mayan ruin and city tour shore excursion and it was fantastic. We toured an actual Mayan residence and it very educational. Our tour guide was great
Don't Miss: The mayan ruins and the authentic mayan hut tour

We had a great time just wandering around the town and shopping. We only made it to a fraction of the stores.
Don't Miss: All the jewelry stores

Pros: Very relaxing and everything is included

Cons: the food was a disappointment

Recommends Carnival Fantasy? Yes!
