We had a great trip. All of the staff was nice and helpful. Our stewardess, Dewi, did a great job remembering everyone’s name and room number and she was always around.

Girl's Getaway by lthillvh323

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Singles/Friends

I enjoyed my time on Carnival Fantasy. The best part of the trip were the burgers and fries from Guy Fieri's burger joint. DELICIOUS!! Stopping at Cozumel was a real treat. Costa Maya was not so much enjoyable. The entertainment aboard the cruise was great. Carnival has very talented individuals working for their company. There were a few things that went wrong, but overall, it was a great trip!

Dinner sucked but service is amazing by Myrnagourgy

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Honestly this was an the best cruise experience we have ever had. The service was great. Yes the dining hall food had no flavor, but the buffet upstairs made up for it. BORO the waiter was ABSOLUTELY AMAZING and made sure our experience was full of laughs and a good time. BORO you made our trip great my friend. The adult on board activities are ones to remember and our room service was very kind and was flexible with our sleeping schedule.

It was just an Okay cruise. by shawtrellj

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Embarkation went smooth, my only con was the porters were very demanding of tips. We were getting ready to tip the guy, and before my husband could pull out his wallet good, the man was in his face demanding a tip. Gave him ten bucks, and he makes a sly comment about him being cheap. My mind was blown, because the porter did nothing but stand there while my husband unloaded and loaded our bags to the porters cart. Going through customs was fairly easy, and we were on the ship in about 30 minutes or less. So that was great. Guys burgers was AWESOME, as usual. We went down to our room, and we had the attendant Jocelyn, SHE IS AMAZING!!!!! Please give her a raise! Our room was larger than I expected for a port hole. It was clean, and the AC was cold, so those are all pluses for me. The entertainment on the ship was a little bland. I am more accustomed to Carnival being an upbeat "Fun" style ship. And the staff really kind of lacked the enthusiasm that I am used to. BUT vacation is what you make it, and we definitely did not let this get into the way of us having fun. MDR food was not good. But the LIDO marketplace food, was really good. The guy fixing omelettes in the morning had a really bad attitude. And he was really nasty with an elderly lady who just wanted to know what kind of cheese they had. He apparently has some issue with cheese, because my husband also wanted a different type of cheese in his omelette and he had a very bad attitude about it. He started slamming stuff around and going back and forth with the elderly lady and my husband. Very unprofessional. Quick fix, we just stopped eating omelettes. Very unfortunate because we were on vacay and actually like omelettes. But again, we didnt want to ruin our cruise over some disgruntled workers. Same thing happened to me at the burrito stand when I asked for some sauce. (sauce was empty on the outside station so I stood in line with my taco salad to ask for some) The guy told me to go look on the outside station, and I told him I did, so he then told me to go look on the other side. Which I had already done. Then got a really bad attitude about it, and just threw sauce into one side of the salad. Again, quick fix-- just stopped eating there. I rather keep a good image of Carnival because I have not experienced this on any other ship. And just chalk it up to Murphys Law.---- Cozumel was AMAZING!!! We did an ATV excursion, and I couldn't have had a better day. Last night of the cruise, we sailed through a storm and the boat was rocky. But other than that. Everything is all good. Will I sail Carnival again-- Absolutely! Will I recommend this ship--- Definitely a NO for me.

Verified Review

The cruise was good just not enough time in Cozumel!!!! We felt rushed in our excursion that cost us $65 per person and we did not get to shop at the local stores.. My sister worm a live worm in her fresh fruit at breakfast. The staff tried their best to make it right but a live worm crawling on your plate KILLED our appetite for sure!!!!

Enjoyed Cruise, but not the Ship by OnlyOne

I must first say the staff at Camp Carnival was excellent! My grandson thoroughly enjoyed himself, and wanted to go back when we got home. The fact that someone overdosed across from my cabin and died still bothers me.

Fun Western Caribbean Cruise by CruiseToYou

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Family (older children)

My family enjoyed Carnival’s Fantasy Western Caribbean cruise. The entertainment was awesome and there was so much to do. Benjamin, the cruise director, was fun and energetic and the employees were great. The food was wonderful both casual and fine dining. My kids loved Guy’s burgers and fries!! This is truly a great vacation plan if you have never taken a cruise.

Anniversary Cruise by pamswift425

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Over all we had a great time. We just didn't realize that there would be soooo many kids. There was never an opportunity to enjoy the pool without a bunch of kids. There needed to be an ADULT only pool. We did get to enjoy the serenity area, that was very nice. The entertainment throughout the cruise was excellent. This was a very OLD ship and I didn't like the fact that you could constantly feel the ship moving. At night in our cabin it was very loud, it sounds like something was hitting the propellers. Even thought we had a good time I would NOT cruise this ship again!

Worst Vacation Ever by TheWinstons2018

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Family (older children)

Our cabin steward was Great! Most all the other staff was also very good. The food at the buffet and celebration dining room was sub par. My lobster that I upgraded had to be cut with a knife. My wife got chicken the first night looked and tasted boiled, no grill marks or seasoning. Order was wrong multiple times. Most of the buffet was bland. Ice cream machine always seemed out of multiple flavors. Basically lived off Guy burger ( delicious)

1st cruise and worst vaction of my life by trone

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

This was by far the worst vacation I have ever been on. The ship was over ran by teens. We could not swim in the pool because there were kids from corner to corner instead of being at the children's pool. Every single hot tub was full of young children. they were completely out of control running all over the ship at all times. Even went to try to get a drink at the pool bar and the bar tenders were too busy making virgin drinks for the kids to get anything for me...after standing there for 30 minutes, my husband and I tried a bar inside and SAME SITUATION. The parents let the kids do as they pleased. 3 out of the 4 nights, I had kids knocking at my door, when I opened it they would laugh and say wrong door. We couldn't lay out by the pool because there were belongings in the chairs-and owner wouldn't return for HOURS. Our last morning I go up to get an iced coffee and the lady yelled at me and told me no blended or iced drinks...she said this is your last day all you can have is regular coffee, so when I asked for creamer she told me only regular. Even the buffet people were rude the last morning of our trip. the gentlemen told my husband he couldn't have two chocolate milks because its our last day. This trip was awful. Never again will I cruise, and if we did it would NEVER be carnival cruise line.
