Great cruise, but bring Dramamine.

Sail Date: December 01, 2012

Reviewed: 3 years ago

Traveled As: Family w/older children

Room Type: Oceanview

The ship and crew were great! \"Cheap\" food (burgers\, pizza\, hot dogs) were aweful\, but the \"better\" food options were amazing! Club O2 (older teens) was fantastic! Even though this is the oldest ship and scheduled for overhaul next month\, it was well kept and the entertainment was fantastic\, both in the show lounge and on the deck! Room service offers smoked salmon and hot coffee\, which helped start the days. Laundry is available on board. Bring a nice outfit (or two) for formal portraits worth taking home!

Pros: Nassau snorkel with sharks excursion (through Orbitz) was incredible!

Cons: Rough seas with Dr. closed (night) and no over the counter meds available to buy on ship.

Recommends Carnival Fantasy? Yes!

Ship Quality
Other than a few frayed carpet fibers and a loose strip of caulking\, you couldn't tell it was in need of attention. After January 2012 when it returns from renovations\, it will look even more amazing!
Food and Dining
The food was wonderful! A \"Mexican buffet\" the last night was the highlight with ice sculptures\, artfully designed desserts\, and the most amazing appetizers of the entire trip! The feta potatoes were to die for!
Cabin / Stateroom
If you are prone to motion sickness\, choose a cabin near the center of the ship to reduce movement. Porthole rooms are a nice economy option!
Service and Staff
The love/marriage show is a \"can't miss\" - the best show of the entire cruise! After Jan 2012\, new shows will be introduced.
Children's Programs
Club O2 (ages 15-17) kept the kids busy and happy until 1 AM daily with activities\, games\, teen dinners\, dances and encouraging new friendships.
