The ship, crew, service and food were very good. This was our first cruise so we weren't sure what to expect. The rockiness of the ship pretty much made us decide this would be our last cruise. We were told by other veteran cruisers that this was not a common occurance so we may give it another shot during another time of the year.

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
Loved all of the choices and the flexibility of dining. Waitstaff was attentive.


3 out of 5
Shows were OK. It was a little too chilly to hang out by the pool all day so a few more inside activities for this time of year would have been helpful.

Children's Programs

3 out of 5
My children are older teens and were not interested in any of the offered programs.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Always helpful and cheerful.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
For an older ship, it was well maintained.

Cabin / Stateroom

3 out of 5
Stateroom was very cramped. It would have been better for us to have brought several small pieces of luggage rather than the large suitcase we had. The room otherwise was clean and comfortable. We had to keep stepping on the bed to get from one side to another.

Pros: The food was excellent!

Cons: The ship was terribly rocky causing all but one of our family members to experience seasickness.

Recommends Carnival Fantasy? Yes!
