Default Dry Dock secrets?Fantasy

How do find out when a ship last was refurbished/dry docked?
Where is the secret link/information?

If I had known Fantasy would be dry docked/refurbished I would have booked her ,not Fascination. I thought I was picking the lesser of the two evils as many post/reviews of Fantasy I read indicated she was run down more than Fasciantion. Now she will be all pretty again. Good for all the Fantasy folks Jealous me

Drydock isn't like what you seen on tv. Ususally in drydock all they do is basically a tune up. They might change out all the bedding, paint, work on the engines. Most people won't even notice what has been done.

I've never seen a list of ships going into drydock.

Default Fantasy Drydock

It is probably just a "tune up" as they just refurbished the Fantasy in 2003.

See http://cruises.about.com/cs/cruisene...sy_remodel.htm

for more details. I've searched for links which shows which ships are in drydock with no success. I do know that the Sovereign of the Seas and Enchantment of the Seas (both RCCL), went through a complete refurbishment very recently. The Carnival Conquest just left drydock at the beginning of September and I heard she looks fantastic.

I was on the Fantasy last year, and while I realize it was only my first cruise, I did not find her to be run down ... The Fantasy looked great, I saw no stains of any kind. There were no smells, other then that of the great food and wonderful ocean air.

Of course, maybe you mean run down in the sense of not as modern as say a newer ship, but to me, and yes I realize that my perspective is slightly off due to it being my first cruise, the Fantasy was in great shape and I would gladly cruise on her again.

I think drydock for most Carnival ships these days probably includes putting in the new linens Carnival is using.

Just like in your home, paint and some deep scrubbing can make a big difference!

Default Dry dock

Thanks guys/gals
Ya'll are a bunch of early bird folks, I am the late night owl.

I looked on another board and found out the Fantasy is in
dry dock currently, getting whatever done. ( linens, carpet, paint??)

I have emailed someone on the Fascination this weeked and will have more details soon I hope.
I am sure it is really a personal thing on clean, dirty, old and new.
I always have fun when I travel, make good time out of bad if I have too.
Hey, if I have a break from the kids and work what else can I want?? 8)
That in and of itself is so relaxing that anythings else is icing on the cake I guess. Just want clean.
