I found your board wile looking for reviews and information on the Fantasy and thought I would share our stories (and some pics).
This is the second cruise for my wife and I. Our first was on the Carnival Ecstasy out of Galveston (Houston, technically, since Galveston got cleaned out last year) last October for our 15th anniversary.
To say that we fell in love with cruising would be an understatement.
My father has been on dozens of cruises, and I finally understood why he kept going back.
Well, we decided to take a similar cruise with our kids this year for summer vacation but picked the Fantasy out of New Orleans because it was $600 cheaper.
I got a call yesterday from a nice lady at Carnival asking if we would like to upgrade from our 185 sq ft cabin (for the 4 of us) to the owner's suite. After speaking to her and getting some pictures I was all over the deal.
I have seen a few pics on the internet, but they were mostly older and (I would assume) before the recent renovation.
So, without further ado, here are the pics!
