6 Night Bahamas (Charleston Roundtrip) Sail Date: March 17, 2012 Ship: Carnival Fantasy Cabin Type: Inside Traveled As: Singles/Friends Reviewed: 5 years ago
The ship overall was very nice. It was extremely clean. We had a great stateroom cleaner. It was very easy to find your way around. There were always plenty of chairs on the decks.
Food and Dining
5 out of 5
There were always multiple options for food at all hours of the day and night. If you want to have a more relaxing trip I would recommend the "your time dining". This is what our group did and it worked perfectly for us. There were always multiple options in the nice dining areas and I didn't have one bad experience with the food.

The nights that we went into ports there were not as many entertainment options, but there was always something going on so you just have to be a little flexible. The comedy shows were great! There were many options for people of all ages at all different times of the day and night.
Service and Staff
5 out of 5
I never encountered a bad staff member on this ship. They were always extremely friendly and always willing to help. The dinning service was great as well as the stateroom service. The bartenders and servers were great as well and made sure you never went thirsty.

The ship was smaller than we were expecting, which made the motion a little worse, but it was not a huge factor. Everything else about the ship was great.
Cabin / Stateroom
3 out of 5
We stayed in a stateroom with 4 people. It is definitely a tight squeeze, but we made it work. If you plan on being in your room very often I would not recommend this room. For our group of 4 it worked fine because we only slept and got ready in the room. The beds were very comfortable and the staff was great about keeping it clean. There was only one outlet plug, which was difficult with 4 girls trying to get ready, but we made it work.
Pros: The ports were definitely the best part of the cruise! The nightlife was a close second, but because it was Spring Break there were a lot of college students.
Cons: The boat was extremely rocky. The days at sea were the worst travel days as far as swaying and a lot of movement. If you get motion sickness I would definitely recommend getting the patch before going on this ship.
