We had a great time on the Fantasy. We had a nice big Grand Suite and balcony, beds were ok, although the neighbors were rude and loud. Food was good, until around day 5 when we got really tired of the same foods. The boat was beautiful and staff was very nice. The pool was too small for the amount of people in it, but the water park area was not as crowded. The excursions were the best part of the trip, book with the cruise line so you get transportation and you are always with someone who knows the safe places. Seven days was too long for us, so our next cruise will be shorter, but fantastic time overall.  Happy

Food and Dining

Good vegetarian and gluten free options, but 7 days of the same foods was just too much.

Cabin / Stateroom

Room was great, spacious, king bed and pull out sofa bed. Plenty of room to move around and be comfortable for a week. Jacuzzi tub was a nice surprise. Plenty of drawers and storage space. Only thing I would recommend is bring air freshener, salt water toilets smell bad after a while.

We did the Segway tour. SO much fun, great tour guides, would do it again Take an underwater camera! Only got to dock for 7 hours, so it was short, but beautiful.

PARADISE! We went on sightseeing and snorkling adventure, then back to the stunning beach to relax for a while. Snorkling was amazing, (even though clausterphobia kept me from actually snorkling), the swimming and sight seeing was amazing. Take an underwater camera! Wish we could have spent 2 full days here!

Our parasailing trip was cancelled so we had no plans. We slept in and when we got off the boat we were bombarded with the crazy tourist trap. We eventually ended up at the Ardastra Zoo, which was awesome, then to do some shopping and lunch. Really wish we had a planned activity at this stop!
