A Fun Ship" - with a great itinerary"
Carnival Fantasy Cruise Review to Caribbean - Bahamas
Ship: Carnival Fantasy
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Traveled As: Singles/Friends

Review SummaryAfter 20+ years in the retail travel industry\, and with over 12 cruises on various lines\, I am a firm believer that there are Nice/Fancy ships and there are Fun ships. Carnival bills itself\, rightfully so\, as a Fun Ship! They knock Fun out of the park! It should not be compared to the nicer/fancier lines. Anyone who prefers great food\, superior service and/or a quiet and refined experience\, stay away. If you are looking for an inexpensive fun experience (read Summer Camp) Carnival is your line. This particular cruise itinerary was perfect for me as I prefer \"at sea\" days. It is also 5 rather than 3 or 4 nights. Finally\, being the only ship calling out of Charleston SC\, the passengers\, for the most part\, were from a specific region of the country that I found to be pleasant and interesting. I've been on so many cruises where you get folks from all over\, this overwhelmingly southern group of passengers was a welcome surprise.
