"Let me start by saying that this is my 5th time cruising with Carnival. I have sailed on the Magic, Dream, Triumph, Elation and now the Fantasy. I wanted to give a fair and honest review of our 5 day cruise...."Read More

My family chose to cruise for Christmas. I’ll start with the pros: Staff on this ship were amazing! Our stateroom steward, Waiyn was incredibly helpful and kind. Our dinner staff was wonderful and extremely accommodating for my one year old. As old as the ship is, I will give the staff credit for keeping it absolutely spotless. Everywhere you go on the ship, someone is cleaning something I ...

We wanted a very cheap way to visit Cozumel and this was it. We got an inside room that was small but the total price was only $715 for the 2 of us. Embarking was fine. We carried our luggage. Disembarking was a little strange but it went quickly after we finally got in line. We left our room at 8:30 and were in our car leaving town by 9:30. Carnival is a Fun Ship and very noisy everywhere. We ...

We chose Mobile due to proximity to home and not going near Orlando where we would be tempted to go to Disney. The staff aboard is great. They are nice, lively and patient. Marty, Gemma, and Lizzy are all wonderful fun staff members. We also really enjoyed the variety at dinner. It was nice to try new things we had never had before. The casino is on the same floor as the Camp Ocean and ...

Fair warning, we have sailed on Princess for our previous 4 cruises after switching from Carnival after 6 cruises with them, on various ships (Holiday, Fascination, Elation, and Miracle). And yes, I’m long winded and critical, but I do give props where they are due. My wife and I decided to try Carnival again as Mobile is a very convenient port for us versus driving to Fort Lauderdale to sail ...

5 hours from Mobile so we drove down. Getting on and off the boat simple and easy in Mobile. It’s a nice big port with $70/5 day parking. Get a better ship in there it would be worth it. We chose this cruise because we wanted to take our 4 boys (10 to 17) and it was cheapest we found. The boys thought it was awesome, and for them it was, my wife and I not so much. But before I go further I do ...

1st Cruise - Fairly cheap but you get what you pay for

First off - we have never been on a cruise before. We are the types that usually get on a plane and fly somewhere. However, we decided to take a chance on this cruise since it was fairly cheap compared to flying to another destination and pay for the additional costs (car, hotel, etc.). We came into Mobile the night before and stayed at the LaQuinta off I-65 which has a stay and cruise package for ...

The wife and I booked this cruise to Cozumel on the Carnival Fantasy because a few friends and our daughter were telling us how beautiful Cozumel was . We drove down on the Thursday morning early to make sure we were there in time to park and find our way in case there were any problems . GPS took us right to the parking deck entrance and they had people there to guide you in which was great . We ...

This is an older ship but well maintained. Mobile cruise port is easy access with convenient parking should you drive.. Positives: Crew and staff; selection and availability of food and drink; cabin steward and cabin upkeep; wait staff in Celebration Dining Room; while the entertainment was adequate it was not what one might call top tier but for the price it was OK. Negatives: (1) Carnival ...

I'll break this review into two parts, (1) the good, and (2) the criticism: The good: - Service. The service and staff were amazing. Friendly, engaging, great with our children, and overall professionals. - Camp Ocean. The camp ocean children servoces were great. We feel bad about placing our children in these types of settings; however, after their first visit -- they wanted to go back. ...

Just got back on 11/22/2018. Had a good time on our cruise, but my wife and I usually have a good time together. Embarkation was fast and painless. The crew was great. Service all around was very good. Our room was fine. Had an ocean view. Room steward was very good. Food was below average to average. We had cruised on the Breeze in 2017 and the food on the Fantasy this time around ...
