5 Night Bahamas (Charleston Roundtrip)
Sail Date: August 11, 2012
Ship: Carnival Fantasy
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 5 years ago

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.

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
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.


1 out of 5
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.

Service and Staff

3 out of 5
Waiters and stewards were attentivew and helpful.

Ship Quality

1 out of 5
Expected cleanliness of public areas to be better. The ship is old\, but the features as originally designed were lovely.

Cabin / Stateroom

3 out of 5
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!

Pros: Food

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

Recommends Carnival Fantasy? Yes!
