Sail Date: Nov 2018
Cabin: Interior

This trip was a "Pack N Go" that we booked probably 3 weeks in advance. We were in an inside room on Deck 4, but it was still very nice and roomy. Typical of Fantasy class - no extra mirror in the bathroom which was a bit small. Stewards were very nice and helpful, though sometimes a bit slow. We typically left our room at 7:30 - to get up to Serenity before the chogs - but our room was one of the last to be cleaned.

The dining room staff was awesome! Vinod does a fantastic job with his waiters, and Aleksanbdra was amazing!

Totally different from the Journey cruise of 2017, instead of 10 days and 3 ports - thank you Irma - we made all our ports. Only problem I had was why did we have to leave San Juan so early? We had 2 sea days to get back to Charleston. Come on! They were probably trying to conserve fuel.

Interior

Cabin 4A

Typical Fantasy Class inside room. Tiny Bathroom, but the water was hot and the shower worked great. Floor in the bathroom is "squiggy". We had the bed configured as a king. The pullmans in the room stayed shut, but I was careful not to bang my head when I go into bed.Enough room for everything.Hate the TV channels - so limited.

Port Reviews

Amber Cove (Puerto Plata)

Went to an all-inclusive resort thru Carnival - Playa Playa. Very nice and homey.
