It's Carnival

Sail Date: August 11, 2012

Reviewed: 4 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Oceanview

We had lower expectations since this was a Carnival cruise. We found the ship to be lovely in some areas, but needing updates for sofas, lounges, chair cushions, etc. Staff did not pick up trays and abandoned food, drink umbrellas cast on the floor, french fries dropped, etc. Despite a \"shot and a beer\" cruising clientele, attending to these details would have improved the quality of the experience for us.

Pros: Food

Cons: Unruly children\, no quiet places for adults\, overcrowded pool and pool deck

Recommends Carnival Fantasy? Yes!

Food and Dining
Food was good\, variety\, some options with the deli and pizza. Stations on the Lido deck like Mongolian Wok and the grille were nice touches.
Cabin / Stateroom
The bed was cmfortable\, but the personal care products were of poor quality. No hair conditioner\, shampoo that didn't lather and very harsh soap. No hairdryer!
Lots of karaoke and loud music. \"reality show\" type entertainment. Only two production shows during the 5 night cruise. Pool games were very raucous and invasive.
Ship Quality
Expected cleanliness of public areas to be better. The ship is old\, but the features as originally designed were lovely.
Service and Staff
Waiters and stewards were attentivew and helpful.
