Not that great

Sail Date: March 01, 2013

Reviewed: 3 years ago

Traveled As: Family w/young children

Room Type: Oceanview

Too much glitzy commercial stuff trying to convince you to spend-spend-spend! The staff was great. The excursions were way too expensive to consider... and no info about other options once you were on the island. A few good shows\, but not enough early family-oriented entertainment for what is billed as a 'family cruise.' The kids camp was very limited. They don't even take the kids swimming\, which is the most fun thing for kids to do on the ship. Not much in the way of crafts/interesting activities.

Pros: Very friendly staff and good food

Cons: Loud pop music everywhere\, too expensive

Recommends Carnival Fantasy? No.

Service and Staff
Excellent\, fun staff.
Ship Quality
Clean and the staff worked hard to create a nice environment. Personally\, though\, too much shops and emphasis on spending money.
Food and Dining
The food was quite good. The desserts were amazing.
Cabin / Stateroom
I thought our room was big enough. Too bad they charge for every little thing\, including water\, when there was no decent drinking water available otherwise.
Not enough going on when you're at sea for two days. Boring activities like Bingo. Not enough for kids. We did see two good comedians.
Children's Programs
Not nearly enough and not very engaging.
