1 Window sill crack and missing bolts holding window in. There was paint on the outside of the window.
2 Bathroom sink crack. Surprised it held water.
3 Stateroom A/C no thermostat only option was on (When it worked).
4 Shower warm and hot water only choices. Not fun with sunburn or when hot.
5 Sewage smell in stateroom and deck.
6 Construction/repair hammering very loud in stateroom at 930am for hours (I have video) calls to guest services yielded nothing. I guess sleeping in on a vacation isn’t permitted.
7 Kids running up and down halls late at night. Screaming and hitting walls and doors. NO ANSWER at guest services. Finally quieted down around 330 am.
8 Pool is a joke. Too small and appeared to look like human soup.
9 Final disembarkation was criminally negligent. Hundreds of people, with luggage, jammed into ONE small hall waiting to get off ship for hours. No A/C in hall.
10 A/C throughout ship and stateroom ship kept going off and on.
11 Wet slippery floors in buffet area due to condensation without a "slippery when wet" sign. Lawsuit waiting to happen.
12 Smoking allowed inside ship. Hard to breathe in casino and night clubs.
1 Room steward Philip was exceptional as were the bartenders at Red Frog Bar. Excellent service!!
2 Food was pretty good and I enjoyed it too much! I see a diet for me because of this.
3 Embarkation was very smooth. Only 20 min from airport shuttle to stateroom.
I’ve been on Royal Caribbean and NCL but this was my first Carnival cruise. I MAY give Carnival a second chance but I will never set foot on Fantasy ever again (That goes for any ships older than 10).

If this ship were a horse, we'd have to shoot it.
