Although the Carnival Fantasy has only 54 balcony cabins, the ocean view cabins are adequate in size and storage space, and the interior cabins are the same size and configuration. The cabin decor is plainer than some of the other Carnival ships. The only issue with the cabins was the darkness of the bathroom. Women will need to use the desk area for makeup application.
The bars and lounges are diverse and fun. Some have dance floors, and many feature live music. Several of the bars are found on the promenade deck, and the indoor seating along the promenade is good place for people watching. The Universe Lounge is the large show lounge, and the two production shows we saw on our 5-day cruise were excellent.
The spa is lovely, and the fitness center is large and has great ocean views all the latest equipment.
