February 2014 - Carnival Fantasy to Caribbean - Bahamas
All in all a very enjoyable cruise. Traveling from New York, my girlfriend and I were looking for a quick escape from the snow. Weather was great with calm seas. Food and service was excellent though the buffet was pretty much the same every day but was still good. I have been to Nassau and Freeport many times but the beaches were a welcome sight. Most of the people were very kind and informative.
There is one complaint and there may be many who share the same view. Throughout the trip there was staff taking pictures everywhere we went. We took a good amount of pictures ourselves and along with the ones the ship offered. Many of the background shots were professional and came out great. It was very difficult to choose from so many pictures. We spent over 100 dollars on four photos which is fine but was forced to leave some great shots behind, Why cant Carnival offer these soon to be discarded memories to their customers at a reduced rate if they satisfy a certain minimum? This policy will give their customer lasting memories, a feeling of a little giveback for choosing their cruiseline and everyone shares their photos when they go home and that alone would promote peoples interest in cruising who never went before. Why throw away something that would mean so much to some people. This alone would give me an incentive to cruise again. A nice vacation!!!!
