Carnival Fantasy 7/18/2016

Sail Date: July 18, 2016

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Inside

Half Moon Cay, Cruise Director (Brandon) and entire Casino staff are awesome!  Get the steak and eggs for Seaday brunch. You can cut the fillet with a butter knife.

Cabin / Stateroom
I am completely spoiled and will definitely spring for the oceanview cabin on future cruises but two little windows beats the heck put of none.
Embarkation and Disembarkation
I swear Carnival has perfected this! We did FTTF so we did get priority boarding but we did an excursion in Miami so we got off with everyone else. The lines were long but moved well.
Ship Quality
This is an older ship but it is exceptionally well maintained!
Destinations and Excursions
Half Moon Cay is our new favorite destination. We were a bit overwhelmed in Nassau and will definitely schedule an excursion if we go back.
Onboard Activities
I wish there was more to do during the afternoon/early evening hours. I like trivia and bingo but I suspect there are people on death row with a better sense of humor than the bingo caller.
Service and Staff
The Casino, dining and room staff is exceptional! Only ran into one minor issue the first day. We purchased FTTF and were told by a staff member that we weren't permitted in our room. Another staff member nearby corrected the issue immediately.
Food and Dining
Buffet was edible but the dining room,Guy's and the burrito place were awesome! We had burritos 3x in 4 days.
Miami, Florida
Port good! Traffic very bad!
Half Moon Cay, Bahamas (Private Island)
Our new favorite! Most stay close to the end where the ship is. Keep walking. Its like a private beach! Absolutely beautiful!
Nassau, Bahamas
We tried a walking map that I found online. My husband was chest bumped by one of the locals demanding a dollar. Another lady walked behind us making comments as other locals passed about how unwelcome tourists are. The people in the shops and restaurants were friendly though. We will definitely do an excursion if we go back.


Go to the burrito place before 2. After they're rushing to get cleaned up. It is still good after 2 but it is better before.
