Carnival Fantasy Cruise Review to Caribbean - Bahamas
Sail Date: April 08, 2011
Ship: Carnival Fantasy
Cabin Type: Inside
Traveled As: Couple

Review SummaryThe ship was large and updated. Our room was a very good size for two people it was kept very clean by our room attendant, Putu from Indonesia. We had a plesaure getting to know him and some of the other staff from other countries. We ran into a few grouchy and unhelpful staff members, but for the most part they were all nice.
The ship had lots of "family friendly" activities that involved women dancing in raunchy thong lingerie-like costumes and a Newlywed game that involved questions about sex and other inappropriate content. Very disappointing!
The pool area is completely overcrowded by 10am and even the "Adults only" Serenity deck has limited number of chairs and fills up quickly. The ship does not have enough lounging areas for the number of guests on board.
Many areas on the ship are smoker friendly and even walking near these clubs and bars, you get a whiff of cigarette smoke that blows you away.
The food was very good, you could order as much as you wanted and the variety was great! Even the pickiest of eaters would be able to find something good to eat. The sushi bar, pizza bar, frsh fruit and huge array of desserts were our favorite!
The ship stops at Freeport and Nassau, Bahamas. Freeport is the ghetto and not very well-kept. Take your bathing suits and towels and spend the day on the beach here, there is nothing else to see.
Nassau is beautiful and you can visit the Atlantis Resort or spend the day shopping in the many shops and restaurants (Senor Frogs is great!). The beach there is nice as well!
This cruise was inexpensive for my husband and I. We were glad we went, but we would never go on this one again or recommend it to our friends...
