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 Carnival's oldest ship. For this reason, I was not expecting a lot of beauty and activities that you'll experience on some of the newest or newly renovated ships. I was at least hoping ...

The gratuities per person where automatically charged on my card without informing the me (customer) which was weird. Food- being a Vegetarian it was a hell to pick the right food, the spoon where actually mixed between Veg and non-Veg, I ordered a Veggie Taco and there was meat on it. I ended having cereal the entire cruise time. The food didn’t look good quality for me. No cash ...

It's time to retire the Fantasy

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 this ship, work on it's staffing, attention to detail, service, food, and nickel and diming of guests This ship is disgusting. It smells, recently received a terrible health ...

First Time Cruiser

Age 50s

First time cruiser excited about seeing Cozumel. I knew beforehand smoking was allowed in the bars and the casino, but I did not know the whole ship would smell like an bar! The lounges and casino do not have physical doors, The entry is wide open and the second-hand smoke travels throughout the ship. I will never go on another cruise unless it is non-smoking or doors and ventilation is ...

First Time Cruiser

Age 40s

First let me say that we had bad weather almost the entire time which was not Carnivals fault but the whole boat smelling of sewer, the elevators not working half of the time, and people throwing up on the stairs and It getting left there were all very gross and off-putting. Our itinerary stated that we had an extra fee associated with the dining room we were assigned to and this being our first ...

I chose this cruise because of the high ratings the ship received for families. I have cruised with Carnival on different ships 2 other times as well as sailing with RCL and DCL. I booked the cruise as a gift to my husband for his 40th birthday. The ship had a scheduled dry dock which ended prior to this sailing. I thought that meant maintenance would be completed and the ship would be in top ...

Propulsion problem

We usually go with a different cruise line but went with this trip because it was a family trip. Ship was dry docked for 2 weeks before this scheduled trip (Jan. 21st). They suffered a propulsion issue that canceled our first day be wise they couldn't get up to speed. We will be given credit for that day and were given an onboard $50 credit. They also took away Progreso port and gave us credit ...

Our last Carnival cruise

We chose the carnival fantasy simply because we saw good reviews on how it was a family style ship. To be honest, it was my first cruise but not my husband or daughters first cruise. Going off their previous experience, food was honestly mediocre. Very similar to Golden Coral, (if you like that kind of food then you’ll be satisfied. There wasn’t a big variety of things to have, such as for dinner ...

My husband and I planned a last minute cruise on Carnival Fantasy out of Mobile Al. I have cruised a couple of times before on Royal Caribbean and had a wonderful experience and this was my husbands first cruise so I was excited for him. The moment I got on the ship i thought what a disappointment. I knew the Fantasy was the oldest ship but I was hoping it was kept in better condition and it was ...

The staff and service on the ship is outstanding. They all work hard to try to please you. This is the redeeming quality of the ship. Everyone should make sure the staff is compensated by leaving gratuities on their bill. It isn't fair to remove them! This ship is way past due for a remodel. We were in a handicap room for my mother-in-law. Bathroom smelled like mold, exhaust wasn't ...
