The biggest issue for me was the lack of time in port. We arrived at 4pm Saturday, by the time we got off teh ship it was after 5pm. Everything was closing and dead. The next day was Sunday and the ship left at 4pm - many shops etc, were closed. For a 6 day cruise, we should not have to be at sea 4 days - it got really boring.

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
The food was decent - nothing particularly special about it. Think cafeteria for the casual food and nice chain restaurant for the dinner menu.

Boring. Not a lot to do. There were a couple of pretty lame shows, 2 comediens, one funny, one not, but they put on several shows, so it was redundant. A disco for the over 18 crowd seemed fun. A lot of lame games - karoke, hairy chest contest, trivia over and over, endless rounds of Bingo.....and it was so loud! There was a band or singer everywhere at full blast - no place for quiet.

Children's Programs

3 out of 5
There were so few kids on the cruise, they really only had programs at night. And they didnt consist of anything that special - hanging out with other kids ( which is fine)

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Everyone was very nice and professional, went out of the way to help.

Ship Quality

3 out of 5
Everything was very clean - including the restrooms which can be no small feat. The decor was dated - like an old LV lounge.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Small, but set up well, very clean. Extrememly comfortable beds!

Pros: Bermuda

Cons: not enough time there

Recommends Carnival Fantasy? Yes!
