Carnival Fantasy Christmas Cruise

Sail Date: December 23, 2015

Reviewed: 1 year ago

Traveled As: Family (older children)

Room Type: Inside

Overall, this cruise experience was ok.  The check in/loading and disembarkment procedures were AWFUL!    It literally took one hour to get through the line to park and then an hour to check in and get our Carnival card.  If you know 2,000+ people are arriving - you SHOULD have more than 2 lines for cars to enter!!


The food was just OK.


I will say the staff were very nice.

Cabin / Stateroom
Very clean room. And for a cruise ship, I felt it was spacious enough. Out room steward was great!
Embarkation and Disembarkation
AWFUL.. 2 hours to get through parking line and check in. Needed more than 2 lines for cars to enter!! We followed the rules for disembarkment- others did not,, so WE had to wait. We were the last group to exit the ship! You need more than 1 door to exit the ship!!

VERY CROWDED. HATED!!!!!!! having to get through the terminal at Nassau to get back onto the cruise ship. There were 6 ships docked and only 2 people at the terminal checking id's. LITERALLY took 45 minutes to get thru terminal! AWFUL!!!!!!!!!!!!
Freeport, Grand Bahama Island
