Carnival Fantasy Cruise

Sail Date: December 01, 2009

Reviewed: 6 years ago

Traveled As: Family w/older children

Room Type: Oceanview

All I can say is the weather was not cooperating with the cruise at all. I know this was not Carnival's fault, however, the information given to all the passengers at the Civic Center as we waited on what was to be the first day of our cruise was handled very badly.

We were told that the ship would not be coming in and that Carnival would put everyone who was not local up in a hotel. Of course, we did not get in the hotel line, but went ahead and booked a room back at the same hotel we had stayed at the night before. The next day we found out that Carnival did not pay for anyone's hotel etc. So needless to say, I was glad we hadn't waited in line with the other 2200 people on the cruise.

The man in charge at the Civic Center, read the message that was emailed to him, so unless Carnival wasn't the one emailing him, they were giving out very bad information - caused alot of issues with fellow cruisers.

Didn't have children that participated in this, however there were over 300 children on the cruise and they were never an issue anywhere on the boat that we were - so great job!
