Carnival Fantasy- Progresso & Cozumel by coutybugg

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

The ship is the oldest but is still a great ship. Food at the buffet is bland but that keeps the weight gain down, lol. Staff was amazing. Captain did a great job staying away from Hurricane Michael. Progresso is a great port but you MUST go in with an open mind.

.My daughter booked this cruise for us, with it being our first and probably last, especially with carnival. This cruise was booked for my wife and i 42ed anniversary. My daughter has been on many cruises and really talked this experience up especially carnival. From the first hour of being on this ship, i can not tell you how rude staff was to all of us a number of times. Outside the formal dinning staff.. When we looked at booking this trip on this boat with carnival, the amenities advertised to us for this ship, was not even on or with this ship. There was hardly any activities to do, especially after dinner. Over half the bars, lounges and other areas of the boat never once had anyone in them at any time doing anything. My daughter specially asked to pay all charges up front, taxes and gratuity. Only to get on the boat and receive a bill the last night for this again for each of us, another couple hundred dollars. My daughter Karen who booked the trip was supposed to get a $50 on board credit for each room she booked. Along with many other people on the ship complaining she never recived it. They did leave her a voucher in her room with someone else information on it. Karen confirmed 2 weeks before we left that this was taken care of through carnival, along with all other necessary requirments. She nor anyone else on that ship recived their credit as they were told. The drink packages were all wrong for each person. My daughter Karen was charged several charges for her daughter who was 17 for alcohol beverages which should not of even been allowed. The food was medoker at best on the ship. We ate better on the islands and some little shake. A nuimber of times we saw staff leaning against walls or tables complaining about how tired they were. That is all fine but never in front of the customers and never when it puts a customer waiting 30 minutes for something that should take 5 at best. I can honestly say, i don't ever see any of us booking with carnival again for reasons i could sit here and go on and on about.

It was just okay. by wlsnjennifer041

I have been on several cruises and this was by far the roughest. I have done research and notice that several of the people that have travelled on this ship in the past have said the same thing. It was hard to walk while the boat was moving.

This was my first cruise. Carnival is a party atmosphere, so think before you choose to bring children. I would like to try other cruise lines. All in all, had a great time.

Great First Cruise by jdabbs01

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Our cruise was fabulous. The room was very clean and our cabin steward was so kind. The food was wonderful and our servers were great. The only negative for us was that we had to go to bar every time we wanted a coke. We don’t drink and it was such a hassle having to wait and be around the bar area just to get a coke. Other than that it was great.

Great Cruise by jessie2y

It was the best girls trip we could have planned. From start to finish, we had a blast. There was no shortage of things to do. The room was not too crowded for the 3 of us. We will definitely be planning another cruise together on Carnival.

Good time by boliver2122

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

You can tell the ship is older and they don't give it the care and attention I have seen on other ships. The main dining room food is good but doesn't have the variety that it use to and dinner main buffets are the same every day where they use to change it up. Or seemed that every time I had a question about something there weren't two people that would ever give the same answer. Alice from Romania in the piano bar is awesome though

The staff was awesome.. there could have been a better selection of food and it would have been great if it was more than 1 pool.. it was well worth it and we will be doing it again!!!

Awesome cruise by cbaker1738

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

This was my first cruise and it was so much fun. Only thing is my girlfriend and I got food poising our last night there in the celebration dinning area, so it was a rough night and next day leaving Mobile the next day. We’re still kinda recovering from it 3 days later. Everything else was amazing. Our room attendant Randy was the best. My girlfriend and I got engaged on the boat in Cozumel so this was definitely a great trip.

The staff would not make the room right at first. It took one night in the hot room before they finally moved us.

10 years later by froggielise

We hope to cruise with Carnival again but probably on a different ship. We chose the Fantasy because of how close we were to Mobile. Next time we will definitely consider the different amenities offered on each ship. We will also have a balcony- enjoying the scenery was high on our list of things to do. We found it funny, when halfway through the cruise, we realized this was the exact ship we had taken for our honeymoon cruise in 2008.
