We are considering the Fantasy or the Sovereign of the Sea. Please e-mail me with details of the cruise ship. Fantasy has the best deals of any of the cruise ships. I would like to know if the ship is as bad or good as they say. We don't party. Meaning we don't drink or care for obcene(sp) comedians or people. But do like shows and dancing. Room size is not that important but clean room and beds are. Any info on food and service would be so greatly appreciated. You hear from the newer ships but not Fantasy. And I like flying into Orlando versus Miami.
I haven't been on the Fantasy in many years, but when I did go I had a great time. My sister and I went and I was in my late 40's she is only 3 years younger than me but acts about 20 yrs. younger. I went to some of the discos with her and dances. We had a good time. I remember the food was very good, but their portions were small, so we just asked for 2 servings. I am sure that they have changed that. I was on the Sensation last year and the food was absolutely wonderful. I have been on the Sovereign 5 times and am going again on the 22nd of Sept. I like her as she was my first ship, but the rooms are much smaller than Fantasy. It has a bit more of an older crowd, but you don't have to do what you don't want to. My girlfriend and I are going to relax. We probably won't even get off the ship in Nassau since we have both been there lots of times. I agree that the Fantasy is a lot cheaper than the Sovereign, but the Sovereign is usally cheaper for me because I use the coupons and get ship board credit for booking while on another ship. I didn't have a chance to do that this time as it was a quickie deal. That is why we went with Fantasy, also my girlfriend wanted to try Carnival. You will have a great time no matter what ship you pick. The only ship I didn't like at all was the Regal Empress.
A helpful tip. Yes they serve Lobster. And if you love any of the items on the menu. You can get as many as you want. We just got back yesterday from our cruise. Our tablemates were glad to find out from us that you can order as many as you want.At our table of 6 we ordred 12 lobsters. I think one person ordered 3 lobsters. YUMMMM. So order as much as you want. Even if you just want to try something new.
