So, our original cruise date was 7/13! Due to Hurricane Barry causing port of Mobile to close, we were delayed by a day and didnt get to board the Fantasy until Sunday, July 14th. This ended up causing us to lose our port day in Costa Maya(hated to miss a day, but definitely understand) In the face of this adversity the crew was great!! The Fantasy is the oldest and smallest of the Carnival fleet, but the ship was great! Not perfect, but nice! Paully the cruise director is nonstop ball of energy. He has been on the job for 3 months and is rocking it. Ranked #1 amongst the other cruise directors with Carnival. Now just a few things the initial info on the boat that you all have wrong. Fantasy is a smaller boat, it does not have the Alchemy Bar or Mongolian Wok. But as far as I'm concerned they had plenty of stuff to keep you busy. I really had a great time and will probably attempt to full cruise at a later date.
