5 Night Bahamas (Charleston Roundtrip)
Sail Date: December 05, 2015
Ship: Carnival Fantasy
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Cabin Number: E151
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 2 years ago

The Fantasy is an older ship.  While well maintained, the age shows in the lack of stabilizers (rocks more than larger/more modern ships) and some general wear.


I usually take a Carnival Fantasy cruise every year, or every other year.  I was on two this year.  That's the statement of value.


With that said, the dining room has been suffering the past few cruises.  Food arrives lukewarm in the flexible dining room.


With that said, I'll keep going.  It's hard to beat for the money, it's just not as good as the cruises out of FL.
