We ended up booking this cruise as a replacement after Carnival cancelled the second half of a B2B we had booked because that ship was chartered. I was not happy about the circumstances around booking the Fantasy but we really lucked out ... Read more

We chose the Fantasy due to its closeness to our home and Mobile isn't difficult to travel through. I'm fairly certain we've sailed on this ship in the past, and most likely out of Jacksonville. Although it's an older Carnival ship and ... Read more
