OK for the price.

Cruise was OK for what we paid and the convenience of leaving from Charleston.  We live near Greenville.  My negative comments were these:  Embarkation took over 2 hours.  Carnival has a 40-minute limit on reserving lounge chairs.  This was NEVER enforced even when identified.  Food in the dining room was excellent, but the service on the port side was extremely slow. (Over 2 hours some nights.)  Several other guests commented about this.  Seaday brunch is outstanding!  Drink prices have significantly increased since we last took this cruise in 2012.  Same drinks, more money. Crew, as usual, was very accommodating.  Fantasy is a nice ship but, maybe, it's time to think about retirement.
