Booking our trip through was quick, easy and painless.  First time having done so and definitely not the last!  


The ship itself, the Carnival Fantasy, to be honest is old, and in need of an update.  Also, the smallest ship we've been on between the Carnival and RC cruise lines. This will be the last time we book a smaller ship. Food quality needs improvement, major improvement.  Have always had a great selection with at least meets expectations in terms of quality for a large number of people. sadly, not this cruise.


kids? tons of activities for the under 15 crowd, minimal for the 15-17 year old crowd per our friends kids and my step daughter's comments.  


Would we book another cruise? for sure. Through Carnival? You get what you pay for...

Food and Dining

food quality was atrocious. Zero flavor, way overcooked.

Cabin / Stateroom

Would definitely consider a separate room for teenage step daughters. The room seemed smaller than normal and set up for three, not for four.

atlantis for the day! more than two in your party? book a room at the comfort suites to get access, less than cost of excursion or day pass.

head to the Grand Lucayan beach, 20 minute cab ride. clean, bathrooms nearby, stores/restaurants across the street with a food/beverage stand on the beach. Take cash!
