Sail Date: 10/06/11
My FI and I sailed on this ship to Bermuda, this was my second time on the Fantasy this year my first time being in May for a girls trip. Things were as I remembered, it was an easy check in for us and we were on the ship within 20 min after parking our car, the lido food was the norm, but I choose to eat at window on the seas, and it was pretty good. The stateroom was the norm also, we had a PT cabin on this sailing and it was fine as well as our cabin stewart, all off the staff we encountered were nice and spoke as we pass them.
Our first night in the dinning room, service was solw slow slow, we had YTD and this was the first time that we had to wait a really long time to be seated, and our buzz thing did not go off, we went back to ask after waiting 45min and we were seated. The food was okay, but not as good as it was in May, I will say that I do miss not having the cocktail shrimp choice everynight, the menu feels like there is just something missing, I don't know, I just felt like I was mising something, I never like missing my chance to eat in the dinning room EVERY night but this time I missed it twice and one of those was by choice.
The ship looked as great as the last time, everthing was in tip top shape for this older ship, staff was wonderful, the second day we hit strong winds and some rough seas, the ship was ROCKING!!! There were a lot of people sea sick including me which hardly ever happens, I have never been so sick that I've thrown up but this time I did. I was in the bed most of the second day and I missed the 1st elegant night. I did manange to get dress and do pics but couldn't make it to dinner.
We arrived in Bermuda on the third day and it was nice to be on land LOL!!! The naval dock yards was okay, we just walked around a bit and hit the stores before they closed. A lot of people were upset because of the time we arrived and departed because the stores were closing at 5pm and were closed on that Sun, this amazes me as to why people don't research there vacations before planning, if they did, a lot of this not knowing what is what would be avoided. Oh well we knew exactly what to expect, We walked around the dockyard a bit, rode the free train, looked around a few stores and bought som rum swizzle cake, we also checked out snorkle park with out paying a fee.
Second day in Bermuda, we got up early to head to Horseshoe Bay, this is a beautiful beach, one of my top 5 that I have been to through out my travels and yes it does have the pick hue to the sand, I even brought some back with me.. We bought a bus pass and just explored as much as we could before time to leave. Yes I would have loved more time in Bermuda and we plan to returned one day for a week stay on the island.
As we set sailed again, I grabbed a spot on the serenity deck and enjoyed the sail away, praying the seas would be nice The day was beautiful as the weather was perfect and had been our whole trip with the exception of the high winds on day two. My FI won two ships on a stick and a medal, he loves playing the games onboard and is really good at them. This night, I opted not to eat in the dinning room, and I couldn't believe it myself, I really felt like I was not missing much, and I usually love carnival's food. Well anyway it was smooth sailing the next couple of days, we met 3 other couples on board, 2 from Fl and 1 from SC we had a great time with them playing spades and going to the farewell party and dinner with them, it was a blast.
Love love our time onboard, even though the food was so so this trip, being that I've been on the Fantasy twice and would sail her again, it would have to be when she sails to somewhere different than Bahamas or Bermuda.
