20th anniversary - we had a blast and will definitely book on Fantasy again!

This was our first cruise and our first time in Mexico so we went into it with no real set expectations. I did do a bit of research beforehand (read reviews, watched Youtube vidoes) which helped us to make the most ...

It’s what you make of it!

I was super skeptical of taking this cruise given the reviews, but the price was great, it fit the dates we needed and was driveable. It’s a 30 year ship so yes there is wear and tear but it’s clean and ...

Time to Retire

We booked this cruise last minute to have quick family getaway during the holiday weekend. This was my 10th cruise experience and by far the worst. I did my research on the ship ahead of time so I was aware it was ...

Five night cruise to the Yucatan

This was our first cruise, January 2020. We selected this cruise because it was short (5 days) and we could drive to the port (Mobile). Overall, the cruise was very enjoyable. The Fantasy ship is about 30 years old ...

Great cruise, had a wonderful time

We chose this ship due to the Mobile port. We had never cruised Carnival and some of the reviews held me back of ships in New Orleans and Mobile. I decided I was not going to drive further to a port (Mobile is ...

Pleasantly Surprised on the Fantasy

The family and I (four of us total) went on the Fantasy for our Christmas vacation. I read a lot of reviews about the Fantasy and I'll admit I was a bit concerned about the overall condition of the ship. However, ...

We choose this cruise because of our proximity to the port of Mobile. It was cheap, at least it appeared to be. Seriously, think twice before booking. We have been on a lot of cruises. Carnival needs to retire ...

Embarkation Smooth! If you're driving to the Mobile Alabama port get there early. We arrived one hour prior to our "scheduled" time and got one of the very last parking spots. Upon pulling up to the garage you'll ...
