Carnival FantasyTraveling the ocean has never been as glamorous as it is when aboard the classic Carnival Fantasy vessel. 

Fantasy has been the ideal party boat for thousands of vacationers since it debuted 20 years ago. With a Las Vegas-style neon casino, a six-story atrium, and room for 2,048 passengers, Fantasy has proven itself to be the sea’s most reliable party.

This cruise ship popularity has endured throughout its years of service. It undergoes constant refurbishing to ensure it is as up-to-date and luxurious as possible! The cabins have recently been outfitted with flatscreen TVs and the atrium has been outfitted with a new bar.

For fitness-minded passengers (or anyone feeling a little guilty after a night at the buffet), an onboard gym and spa provide space for rejuvenating, healthy activities before hitting up the nightlife all over again. The ship outdoor deck matches Fantasy‘s vibe perfectly. The hot tubs and pools make it a prime location for all party-goers at all times of the day.


Fantasy is every adult playhouse. From the casino to the 10 bars and lounges to the Roman-themed entertainment promenade. But, it is every kid’s dream, too. The new 9-hole mini-golf course is an absurdly fun way to spend an afternoon. The three-deck-high water slide is the ideal centerpiece for a family cruise.


As for food, this ship has a wide variety of dining options. In addition to a pair of big one-story dining rooms, there is a more casual buffet restaurant, a sushi bar, a 24-hour pizza house, and a fancy cafe.

At standard cruise prices, Fantasy offers plenty of entertainment options for your vacation and promises a good time for all. Whether you’re bringing a Bachelor party or a celebrating kids birthday party, this is the right place to be!
