5 Night Bahamas (Charleston Roundtrip)
Sail Date: December 19, 2011
Ship: Carnival Fantasy
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Traveled As: Family (older children)
Reviewed: 6 years ago

The ship was clean and well kept. There was plenty to do so it will appeal to a large variety of people.

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
We liked the variety of foods at the dining room and appreciated the various buffets that made snacks and alternate meal options available virtually around the clock. We had selected anytime dining rather than a set dining time, and we were disappointed that we had to wait to be seated on three of the evenings.


5 out of 5
We were surprised at the numerous opportunities to attend shows and participate in events. Great variety of options to appeal to a diverse population.

Children's Programs

5 out of 5
Circle C had plenty of options for the 12-14 year olds and they liked the games and events that were planned.

Service and Staff

3 out of 5
We did not have any special requests of the staff, but we noticed a general sense of friendliness and upbeat personalities among staff members. The service at some bars was a bit slow.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
The cleaning staff did a great job keeping common areas clean and attractive. It was decorated festively as we cruised just before Christmas.

Cabin / Stateroom

3 out of 5
The room was cleaned daily and we appreciated that. The decor is a bit outdated (color schemes/prints, etc)

Pros: Relaxation AND plenty of activities for those who like to be on the go

Cons: Anytime dining resulted in a wait for at least three of the nights

Recommends Carnival Fantasy? Yes!
