First cruise and we LOVED it!

Sail Date: August 2017
Destination: Western Caribbean
Embarkation: Mobile
The Fantasy is an older smaller ship compared to the others but it was plenty big enough for us plenty to do and see. The crew were always friendly and helpful! I cannot say enough about our waiter Kennan! He was always smiling and joking with us he took care of us and made our days enjoyable. He called all of us by name and came by frequently on the Lido deck by the pool to check on us. We would go back on the Fantasy because of the crew and people we met! We were always entertained on the ship where ever we went. There is always something going on and you can participate or just people watch and enjoy the show like we did most of the time. We did not book any excursions so I cannot review those. The port in Mobile, AL was lacking in organization but sometimes things cannot be planned like people trying to get off before they were called and the escalator breaking. We had a blast and would go back tomorrow though! Less

Our room was clean and well taken care of our by our steward Dewi she was friendly and greeted us by name every time we saw her.

Port and Shore Excursions

Not much to do if you do not go on an excursion but we had alot of fun in the pool inside the square where all the shops are.

We rented a car and drove to the backside and found a beach with a bar and we ate good food and had massages on the beach. We loved it will be going back to stay a few days.

They were not very organized we made an appointment for arrival and arrived early and it took forever to get thru customs. Getting off the ship was def worse but I have already covered that.
