Default Carnival Fantasy 10.27.08

hi. my family and i are planning on going on the fantasy for halloween. i was just wondering what all do i need to expect. from new orleans, & progresso. the last time i sailed out of new orleans it was before katrina. and the last time i was in progresso lets just say my mom said she didnt ever want to go back and that was in 1997. so i was just wondering if anyone would share their experiences with this ship and these ports. thanks. =]

was it really that bad because when we went even the docks were crap. i mean as soon as we got off the ship the port just looked nasty.

Hi Ainsley, as far as progresso only been there once. Actually we took and excursion to see some ruins and it was quite interesting. As for New Orleans, the city is about what you would expect. Some areas still have not come back to life, and in other areas it's actually better. If you haven't cruised from New Orleans since before Katrina that means you used the old terminal. The new terminal is in the same area as the old one. There is a new 3 or 4 level parking garage. The terminal is located directly below the parking garage which is great if the weather is not in your favor. Good luck on your trip. We'll be cruising from the in April. Rick

Check my photo gallery, Ecstasy 2006 on 3-18-07 and you can see the harbor around Progresso.
