The cruise was a success, my granddaughter thoroughly enjoyed her first cruise. Kathy Patterson did a fine job at Cruise's Only. The ship and the ports were safe and clean. The staff and crew were all top notch in all categories. The current port terminal at Charleston had a difficult time processing the 2000 passengers aboard the Fantasy. Wish we could have boarded in Norfolk. The coral beach at Grand Turk was tough on the feet, make sure to wear beach shoes. This was a good value, just don't expect extras. Once again, it was a good cruise, and Grampa will repeat it with the grandson in a month. Happy cruising, Tom

Carnival did a fine job with their end, Charleston needs the new pier to compete.
Cabin / Stateroom
Charleston, South Carolina
Move to Norfolk.
Grand Turk Island
Perhaps there was a better beach than near the pier.
Half Moon Cay, Bahamas (Private Island)
Nassau, Bahamas


Drop the redundant and unnecessary from the Life Boat Drill. Spark up the Breakfast buffet.
