And about Charleston, getting rid of the Fantasy and bringing a more modern, larger ship may be the bump that I need to sail from there.
Great points! I could see Vista replacing Fantasy in the CCL fleet, not necessarily to the same homeport though. Although the new ship could be the crowning jewel of a Charleston terminal build and agreement with the city.

And, it could make sense that they'd sell Fantasy rather than transfer to IberoCruises. Maybe IberoCruises would be a considered as a "last resort" if it doesn't sell. But that could be expensive as the ship would have to be retrofitted as were the Holiday class ships when they went over to IberoCruises.

Also, one may wonder if they'll start transitioning all of the Fantasy class ships out of the fleet? I don't recall any new builds announced yet post-Vista.

I wonder if they would leave the WaterWorks?
