Very Relaxing

Sail Date: February 25, 2012

Reviewed: 5 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Oceanview

The Fantasy is the oldest ship in the fleet. If you require a balcony stateroom, look elsewhere - there are none. Although the ship shows its age in many ways - inconsistent water temps in the shower, constant engine vibrations almost anywhere aboard, etc., it is a very cozy environment with a 97% friendly crew and pretty much all the bells and whistles you expect on any Carnival ship. I would book this ship again without hesitation.

Pros: Freedom to do whatever we wanted (within legal limits, of course).

Cons: The herding during embarkation, debarkation, required meetings

Recommends Carnival Fantasy? Yes!

Cabin / Stateroom
With one exception, the musical acts were not up to par. Neither the Atrium piano nor the Cleopatra piano players knew their stuff - made up words, many missed notes. That said, Music Degree (a 4-piece group of Filipino guys) was among the best cover bands I have ever heard!
