Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Oceanview

You have to understand that this ship is 22 years old (written in 2012). She had a certain "sewer smell" throughout the cruise, the smell of diesel on the top deck and stale cigarette smell in the state rooms and hallways. Mid-ship and aft she had a shimmy when underway that shook the dining tables. However, you can't beat the price, and although things are not up to Royal Caribbean standards, it isn't that far behind.

Pros: Low price

Cons: Smells aboard

Recommends Carnival Fantasy? Yes!

Ship Quality
Again, at 22 years old, she doesn't have the "flow" of a modern ship.
We had an extra day at sea due to high winds, and quickly ran out of things to do. They don't have a show every night, and the columns in the theater block some of the view for many of the seats.
Food and Dining
Cabin / Stateroom
Except for the constant stale cigarette smell, the state rooms are comfortable. The modernized bathrooms are excellent.
