i am not cruising her until Feb. but i hope you have a wonderful time. You will be seriously addicted after it!! What is your itinerary? Cozumel?
How long of a cruise is it? Lobster is only served one time during the cruise and you can have as much as you want!! You will have an awesome time. Come back and post a reply on your cruise!

We will be going on the Fantasy in Dec. We was on the Fantasy june 07. That was are first cruise it hooked us. The food was great. If you order something you don't like order some thing else. Don't forget to try the chocolate melt cake. We tried it the first night and then I had it every night.
They have 24 hour pizza or deli on the ledo deck. We would go watch the show then get a pizza or ice cream cone and set out on the deck. They have tables out on the deck you can eat at. That time of night it was never buisy. Well I hope you have a great Cruise please come back and tell us all about it and share pictures.

Most drinks are what... 6.95 plus tips? I really haven't paid much attention because I am on vacation and I plan my trips well enough that I don't worry about costs. The beer is less expensive of course.

I was on the Fantasy back in April and will be on it again for halloween this year. I have been on 7 cruises and highly addicted to it. you will love the fantasy. be sure to try any foods you want. you can order as much of anything. i sometimes ordered 2 different things each night and split them with my mom. you can order 2 desserts too im sure you will like cozumel its gorgeous. progreso they say to take a tour which they are right if you dont there isnt a tonnn to do and have a blast doing it. we went on the buggy beach break in progreso and after the buggy ride we went back to a beach and had an open bar. but im sure you will have a blast. be sure to come back with all your pics and stories

Been on Fantasy a couple of times and it is a very nice ship with good food and entertainment.

Last time in Progresso, we just looked around town and headed to the beach for a while. Found a place to get 45 minute massages on the beach for $20 each and it was great.

Word of caution though, since you will be face down on the massage table, be sure to put your belongings right below your face, so you can see them at all times.
