  3. Carnival Fantasy
10 Cruises and counting... 2nd and LAST on "Carney!" ... makes one appreciate the "Quality" Lines. Old Ship! Bad port! Poorly organized & badly executed entertainment! The ship's pathetic attempts to entertain were highlighted by a "Magic Show" in which the Magician performed on a stage without the benefit of lighting. This ship was "rehabbed" several years ago...but it's still a sows ear! Some of the public spaces are very nice but the Dinning Rooms are tacky and claustrophobic. The entertainment spaces are ill conceived and poorly executed. (Numerous posts and railings thru sightlines) The generally friendly, courteous staff is more than offset by the incompetents of the ships management. One thing you'll never miss... copious opportunities for yet another photo shoot! Average to occasionally near excellent meals and food service... if you can overlook the mindless meal scheduling. (Late dining... 8:15PM...but decent luncheon service ceased @ 2:30PM) Off course... the "healthy choices"... Grease Burgers, Fries, & Ice Cream is nearly always available. Tiring & unimaginative Ports of Call... GRAND Turk? anything but! The Carnival Management Team in Doral needs to get off their butts and on to their "Love Boats!" to experience their product first hand.  

7 long days!

Cabin Review

Ocean View
Cabin 6A R224
Clean & marginally functional... "One" operational power outlet in the entire Stateroom. Adequate closet space...but not a single hook in the Bath or Stateroom. No mini-frig... not even an ice bucket! Great flat screen TV w/ a channel guide you can't read.
