I just got off the Fantasy on the 16th of January. we did the guaranteed room even told it was an upgrade inner cabin. well 1 1/2 days of our trip was pretty rough especially the last day when we were supposed to be off the boat but could not because the weather was too bad to port. I did not care for the cabin right in the nose.
we were on the lido deck trying to get food to eat during the attempt at getting into the channel to go up to Mobile and I think the back of the boat would not have been such a good idea either.
the boat seemed calmer and less movement in the middle of the boat.
