7 Night Eastern Caribbean (Charleston Roundtrip)
Sail Date: November 20, 2010
Ship: Carnival Fantasy
Cabin Type: Inside
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 7 years ago

The ship is way too small for that many people. They crammed us into little rooms for comedians. There was no live music, no real bands. There was a bad sewer smell for 2 days onboard plus elevators were out of order.

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
Average. No beverages with dinner service. Very few speciality menu items. The buffet line was always crowded and the same food every single day!

The activites were non-existant and the programs and entertainment was extremely poor. Many things were held in very busy high-traffic areas and were too noisy.

Service and Staff

1 out of 5
Most of the staff never acknowledged you and usually they looked bored or tired. Also, I was shocked to see so many crew members smoking in public areas.

Ship Quality

1 out of 5
Outdated, stained, shops were closed most of the time, and entrance doors didn't work.

Cabin / Stateroom

The beds were ok but the phone did not work right. There was room for more small shelves so why not have them?

We had a nice time off the ship. Except for the pushy people always wanting to take our photos at every stop. They were pretty aggressive.

We rode the trolley around Key West and got to see much more of the area than the times we were here before.
3 out of 5
Not much here yet but the walk around was ok.

Pros: The room was ok, and the weather was nice

Cons: Everything! The service was bad, the food only average, the ship itself needs overhauling, and onboard entertainment was very poor

Recommends Carnival Fantasy? No.
