Ship is like new!
Carnival Fantasy Cruise Review to Caribbean - Western
Sail Date: April 23, 2009
Ship: Carnival Fantasy
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Traveled As: Family (young children)
Reviewed: 9 years ago
I worked on the Carnival Sensation for two years and even got married onboard, so I am VERY familiar with this class. The Fantasy was redone and it looks fabulous. The lido deck is like Extreme Ship Makeover! Who knew a few palm trees could make it look so luxurious! The beds in the cabin were super comfy and Camp Carnival's new facilities are GREAT! The new water park is nearly as big as the pictures imply, but it was fun anyway. My son (3 years old) was too short for the slides (as expected - this is a safety rule and I am not complaining) and the only pool onboard now is 4'9" deep so he was outta luck with any H2O fun, but he did love Camp Carnival. Would be nice if the kept a little splash pool or something for the little ones as the sprayers weren't operating when we were onboard. The shows were not as impressive as expected - I'm disappointed that Carnival is using more and more movie props for the big shows. I just want to see good, LIVE, talented performers! Overall a great cruise.
