Fantastic Experience!!!

Room Type: Suite

My wife and I didn't quite know what to expect as it was our first cruise. The experience was everything we had ever heard and more. From the time we arrived for check-in until the time we put our luggage in the car to start home, we were professionally and pleasantly assisted. We found many activities to participate and enjoy. The service was exceptional. Our stateroom, which happened to have a balcony, was terrific. We both agreed the entire experience of our first cruise would be difficult to surpass with a follow up cruise. However, we will try. Hats off to Carnival Cruises.

Pros: Professionalism of staff/organization

Cons: never was able to completely understand how to get from place to place could perhaps use different terminology for directions

Recommends Carnival Fantasy? Yes!

Ship Quality
Ship size\, condition of public areas\, decor\, cleanliness etc were all excellent. If we had one minor complaint it was with lay-out. Not so much the physical layout as it is dictated a great deal by ship structure but with directions and terminology of getting places or where a specific place was located. I am not sure we totally mastered it prior to debarking.
Food and Dining
Not much too say about this. It was excellent\, available\, and the evening dining experiences were special. Our service was outstanding and food very tasty.
Cabin / Stateroom
The one fear I had of the whole cruise thing was living quarters. As soon as we walked into our stateroom\, which happened to be upper deck with balcony\, we found a great sense of relief. The room was outstanding.
Service and Staff
Perhaps the best and most memorable of all our experiences will be the way we were treated by the entire staff. It simply was superb in every single area.
A nice variety of entertainment from which to choose. Schedule of activities allowed several options. Being a little older\, we enjoyed the opportunity to have events that were a little less physical. There were plenty. We also enjoyed watching the younger crowd \"doing their thing\".
