Pay More for "More"

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Inside

We learned the valuable lesson of "you get what you pay for" aboard the Carnival Fantasy. It was our first cruise. The ship was smaller and much older than excepted. We were disappointed because our travel agent promised us an anniversary cake and champagne, but we never received it. Oh well. There was only one, small pool for children and adults. When went in it once, but left after we noticed the layer of sunscreen and other containments that lined the top of the pool. There is an adults' only area which was nice and relaxing. Not many dining choices but we made due. We enjoyed the late dining and the pizza. If we cruise again, we will select a different cruise line with a newer, larger ship.

Cabin / Stateroom
The room was a decent size. We had a "king" size bed (two twins pushed together). There wasn't much room in the room but we weren't in there too much. Our cleaning staff, Joseph, was great. I swear the room was cleaned after every time we left.

Charleston, South Carolina
Freeport, Grand Bahama Island
The people of Freeport are amazing, however, the port itself is very industrial; not a tropical paradise.
Nassau, Bahamas


The comedy shows are great! We definitely recommend going to every one. The ship is very small and old. If you want seating at a show, go early.
