Fun on Rough Seas
Carnival Fantasy Cruise Review to Caribbean - Western
Review summaryThe Fantasy is an old ship but in good shape considering it age. On cruises longer than a week I think it would become boring, but it is the perfect size for a 5 day cruise.
Food and Dining
Blue Iguana Cantina
We especially liked the Taco bowls which could be customized to our different tastes and hotness.
Celebration Dining Room
This was the Your Time Dining venue and was great. We never had to wait more than a few minutes for seating and the staff was quick, friendly and responsive. The menu was large enough for every taste, featuring a rotating daily cuisine as well as a consistent option and a steakhouse option that was additional cost .
Guy's Burger Joint
The burgers were juicy and cooked just right. There were a lot of toppings available and the fries were perfect.
The grill was great, and the sandwiches were awesome. There are a good selection of hot and cold sandwiches. At times the line was long, but still moved at a decent pace.
Windows on the Sea Bar and Grill
Decent variety of food. The freshness of the food depended on the time of day and the number of people dining at the time.
Resort Style Pool
We did not use the pool as we prefer the spas, however when the weather was good the pool area was full. It is also close to 2 bars and 2 eating areas. A great place to seat and spend the day weather permitting.
The weather was so windy that we were unable to play, but it is a large course that looked like fun.
This venue was difficult to get to. We had to go to the Lido, through the buffet and then down, or through the Forum Lounge. There is no direct access. Despite the opening time listed as 8AM it was rarely opened at that time. There are deck chairs, and a covered seating area as well as a towel station. It would be nice if there was a bar also. It is a small area so it fills up quickly.
This is great place to relax and unwind. There are free books to read and board games, a seating are to work on a computer. It is also a good place to play cards and just people watch in comfortable chairs.
Grand Spectrum Plaza
The place was always a happening spot
Universe Main Show Lounge
For a 5 day cruise there were 3 great shows that offered a variety of entertainment. The shows were Motor City (Motown Music) , The Brits (British Invasion Era) and Country Road (country music). As well through the day there were other events that were entertaining and informative.
Service and Staff
Cabin / Stateroom
Get to the spas and comedy shows early to get a seat. Make sure your know which elevators and stairs go to which levels so you don't find yourself back tracking.
