The cruise seems ideal for people who enjoy drinking, gambling, mediocre food, and who don't mind cigarette smoke. Our days on shore included great excursions (not included), wonderful local food, and relaxing walks through interesting places. Our days on the ship were less than enjoyable.

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
The meals were good there was nothing phenomenal or breathtaking. This is understandable since they have to cater to everyone.


1 out of 5
The shows were entertaining and there were a few nights with shows. During the day, though, there were not a lot of activities. There was line dancing, trying to fight for a lounge chair on deck, looking at the same five shops, or waiting for a treadmill in the gym. At night, there are several smoky bars to visit after dinner. Unless you are a drinker, I would not recommend this cruise.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Every member of the staff was friendly, helpful, and willing to go out of their way to make sure that we had everything that we needed.

Ship Quality

3 out of 5

Cabin / Stateroom

3 out of 5
Stateroom quality and cleanliness was good. There was a consistent buzz on the movie channels on the TV.

Pros: Great service.

Cons: There is not a lot to do if you don't drink.

Recommends Carnival Fantasy? Yes!
