Hi, we will be cruising on the Fantasy leaving from Port Canaveral on April 21, 2002. I was wondering about some reasonable hotels in the area, and also I would like to hear any reviews, experiences, etc. about the Carnival Fantasy!!!
Sorry, can't help you will hotels, we did cruise out of Port Canaveral years ago, but spent a few days in Disney World first. Here is a members review of Fantasy from last December, that should help:
the first cruise I took was aboard the Fantasy, and I LOVED it. The food was amazing..and there was TONZ to do. The only problem was that in our cabin...at all hours, it sounded like someone was banging a hammer on all the walls of our room. They could not fix this...and the ship was full, so into the night, we slpet with banging. Othere than that, the trip was great. They did give my mother and I $500 dollars toward our next cruise so, they made up for it.
I love the Fantasy boat. It went through a major renovation a couple of years ago and is a beautiful ship. On the back of the boat on the Lido deck behind the Windows of the Sea grille, there is an outside deck with a few tables on it where we love to sit and watch the boat's wake. The food was exceptional I thought. The entertainment was superb as well. Have fun.
