Default Fantasy Class Ships

Has anyone recently been on a newly remodeled Fantasy class ship. Have the put the S & S cards and room keys together? Or do they just have you s&s card and a seperate room key?

Sailed on the Imagination on 10-17-08. The S&S cards were your room key also. Something new too, when you played in the casino, you needed to use your S&S to play the slots. Set up a pin, then when you finish playing download any credits to your card. But be sure to cash in before the casino closes on the last night or you will lose the money. The Imagination was a great ship, great crew and clean. No negatives to report. Loved the upgrades too.

Thats good becuase I was looking at some pics of the Sensation and I saw this weird room key. I haven't gone on a Fantasy class ship since 2003 so I couldn't remember. So that is good they are changing them out.

I don't think ALL the Fantasy class ships ever had separate keys. Seems like I heard two different reports about room keys on Fantasy. Ecstasy will be last to have the current updates as it was already updated after hurricane duty. You still need two keys on her as of now.

Good question, I prefer just one card to carry around.

It is also probably a pain for the crew of the ship, to make sure they get the keys back at the end of the cruise. Beucase as I could see in the picture they were hard plastic.

BTW Does anyone know when the other ships will get the full refrub??

On the Fantasy a couple of weeks ago your S&S card was also your room key. The S&S card was only used in the casino if you wanted to be in the Player's Club. The machines will always take cash! I didnt play any of the table games so I don't know about those.

Good to know--thanks. I will be her soon and as I've already mentioned, one card is much better.
