Fantasy 7 day

Sail Date: December 2012
Destination: Western Caribbean
Embarkation: Charleston

We left Charlotte,N.C. at 6am saturday dec. 8th for a nice short drive to Charleston ,stopping in Orangeburgh for breakfast at a Cracker Barrel. Arrived at the port @ 10am and dropped luggage off then left and drove back around and waited a while till they opened for parking. They staged the cars for parking and we sat till 11:30 ,it was $119.00 for the week .

We have left from this port twice and embarkation has been a breeze both times! We were thru security ( had to have our bottled water checked )on board and had my relaxing drink in hand by 11:55. As we entered the ship they were announcing the rooms would be accessable @ 12:30 . The Deli up on Lido was our first stop , I think it is some of the best food on the ship.

Our 1st sea day was a CC meet & greet and Carnival supplied the Cats Lounge and some prizes, Thanks John Heald , Laura did a great job organizing the event and it was great meeting the other CC cruisers. We were very lucky with the weather , mid 80's More every day. Food was fair .

Debarkation was also very good , the silent debarkaton works very good , we docked @ 6:15 got off and thru customs & shuttled over to parking by 8:10 & on our way By 8:20. The ship is still in great shape and the crew was great , We will probably do the same cruise next year ! Less

Island Tour

We walked the beach towards Jack's Shack and there was a tram ride I think it was Little Island tour , it cost $20 per person , went thru the city , by the new Carnival Center , up to the Lighthouse and back . It took almost 2 hrs ,the guide was good & knowledgeable ,he said they've only been running for 6 months . Wish them luck , It was a very good tour

Spent time taking pics and enjoying the Pirate Ship Bar

This was our 8th time in Nassau , went to Senior Frogs for lunch and watched the entertainment
