You would think that the third time on the same ship would be mundane and boring, but not so with the Fantasy. We just sailed on her on a 4 night cruise to the Bahamas, where we've been many times, but each time the Fantasy had been either refurbished or totally updated, and it was like being on a new ship again. Being avid cruisers, Fantasy is the ship we recommend to novice cruisers to get a good perspective on what cruising is like, without spending an arm and a leg, or being gone too long. And we've never had anyone come back disappointed. We have sailed on 12 Carnival cruises, one Royal Caribbean, the old Big Red Boat, and even the old Canaveral Cruise Line Dolphin IV, which was a real hoot. We are now Platinum members on Carnival, and they treat us like VIP's, escorting us onto the ship and special escort off the ship first! We were able to get off this cruise at 8am, and make it back to Orlando in time to get our granddaughter, who was on the cruise with us, to her kindergarten graduation at 9am! Amazing! We cannot say enough about Carnival ships. The other ships we have sailed are Tropicale, Destiny, Celebration, Sensation, Paradise, Pride, Spirit, Glory, Legend, and Fantasy 3 times. We live 45 min. from Port Canaveral, so it's great to have such selection out of Port Canaveral now. We have booked all of our cruises via , and they always get us the very best deal, normally we book on a guarantee, and have always gotten great upgrades. We book far in advance too, that's another tip for getting great deals. I'd never book through anyone else, and I give their website and number out to all my friends.
Keep up the great work , and Carnival! We love you!

Pros: VIP treatment

Cons: Too short

Nassau, Bahamas
Everyone should take a tour of old Nassau at least once, and visit the straw market if you don't mind bargaining with them. A taxi or water taxi to Paradise Island is great, walking thru Atlantis is awesome, and unless you purchase a special tour, it's totally free. Cost $6 round trip on a water taxi. Lots of shopping area has been built around it. For the gamblers, their casino is fantastic.
Don't Miss: Atlantis
Freeport, Grand Bahama Island
If you've never been, it's worth seeing Port Lucaya, beautiful water and yaghts. The dolphin experience is supposed to be wonderful, though I haven't done it personally. The beach and island is beautiful.
Don't Miss: Parasailing. Not sponsored by the cruise line, but it is wonderful
