Changes will be evident from the moment guests arrive on board. The first level of the ship’s soaring seven-deck-high atrium will now feature a new lobby bar offering the ideal spot for before- and after-dinner cocktails and people watching. Popularized on Carnival’s Destiny- and Spirit-class vessels, the new venue will also include a stage where a trio will play classical music during embarkation and throughout the voyage.
Each of the Fantasy’s 1,028 staterooms will also receive a complete makeover with new wall coverings, furniture, bedding and linens. In-cabin bathrooms will be fully remodeled, as well, with updated vanities, new tile work and shampoo and soap dispensers.
Via Marina, an enclosed double-width promenade, will also receive a facelift, with elegant new furniture and a decorative marble floor with carpet inlays, while The Forum, the Fantasy’s conference facility, has been reconfigured so that it can be utilized as both a meeting space and entertainment venue. Windows on the Sea, the ship’s poolside restaurant, will be enhanced with new tile work, carpeting and additional salad and dessert bar stations.
Numerous other areas throughout the ship, including Cleopatra’s Bar, Electricity Dance Club, Cats Lounge, and Celebration and Jubilee dining rooms, will receive cosmetic enhancements, with new carpeting and wall coverings throughout.
Didn't see it before the refurbishment, but it looked great in January *after*!
The duvets were ever so soft and comfy and the bar in the atrium was a pleasant place to sit. New draperies, furniture, etc. was evident.

We were on her in April..and it looked like a brand new ship to me..I loved the beds..they were so comfy and almost better than ours here at home. We had NO complaints about anything..She is a wonderful ship and we had a blast. Crew was very helpful and always ready to help.
I cruise on the Fantasy last week. I did not see any different or new additions. I checked out the sport room, spa, lounges ( my hang out), and the dinner room ( celebration). I can tell you that we really enjoyed cruising on the Fantasy as always.We have made plans to return next aug 05 for our 2nd annual Girl friend cruise.
Hey, anyone happen to know the name of the Band that plays in the Cat's Lounge Aug 5, 04 on the Fantasy ( African American Band)? I would like to make sure they will be aboard the fantasy next Aug before we finalize our plans.
