Loved the Fantasy. We did a four night cruise last December. It was just my husband and I but there were plenty of kids. When I peeked into the kids area, they sure seemed like they were having fun. Even though it was only 4 nights, it seemed longer because there was so much to do we didn't sleep much. See my pictures in the phot gallery---Carnival Fantasy author Cheryl C

I'm taking my grandson (14 years old) on a 4 nighter on RCCL in two weeks, stops in Key West, Coco Cay, and Nassau. I live in south Florida and it's an easy drive to Miami. Living in Florida, I don't have to worry about air fare. My grandson chose this itinerary because he prefers stopping in ports rather than sea days.

Hi Karyn:

We have sailed twice to date and have taken our children with us both times. They were 9 & 10 the first sailing then 10 & 11 this past spring.

Both times we did a 5 night cruise - 1st on Sensation stopping in Cozumel and Grand Cayman. Loved these two spots.

Then this past spring on Celebration stopping in Key West and Nassau.

Both trips were great - the kids had lots to do on the ship. More activities on Sensation than on Celebration but both were great.

Good luck on your planning. Always lots of fun trying to figure out just where to visit.

Enjoy and Happy 4th.

We sailed to Freeport and to Nassau. In Freeport we did the Tranquility Beach Shores excursion. In Nassau, we did our own thing, shopping, ferry over to Atlantis and Cabbage Beach.
