5 Night Bahamas (Charleston Roundtrip)
Sail Date: April 18, 2011
Ship: Carnival Fantasy
Cabin Type: Inside
Traveled As: Singles/Friends
Reviewed: 7 years ago

I recently sailed on the Carnival Fantasy. The room cleaning team was phenomenal. I was very disappointed with the wait staff in the main dining room. When asked for more bread, the server would say yes and never bring it. It took a very long time to order drinks. One night a different server took care of us, he reached across people's places, never brought steak knives, was painfully slow, hit me in the head and never apologized. The entertainment was poor, it was geared towards guest participation, mainly kid participation. The ship was very outdated and smelt HORRIBLE after day one. There was apparently an issue with the holding tank. The pool was very small, we never even got the opportunity to get in it. There were not enough chairs for people to lay out on, people would wake up at 6am to go out and put their towels on a chair then camp out on it all day.
