All of the cruises available on board Carnival Fantasy depart from the lovely city of Charleston in South Carolina. Carnival Fantasy cruises range in length from 5- to 7-nights, and feature destinations including the Bahamas, Bermuda and the Eastern Caribbean. This ship is the original Fantasy Class ship of Carnival Cruise Line's fleet.

Part of Carnival Fantasy's recent refurbishment included the addition of all new Fun Ship 2.0 enhancements! Upgrades include the addition of Blue Cantina, Blue Iguana Tequila Bar, Red Frog Rum Bar, Alchemy Bar and Guy's Burger Joint, as well as onboard programs like Camp Ocean and Seuss At Sea. Prior enhancements include Carnival WaterWorks, a large aqua park that's featured on many Carnival cruise ships, Serenity Adult-Only Retreat, and the addition of a resort-style pool as well as stateroom updates that included new carpeting, decor and flat-panel TVs.

Because Carnival offers both traditional assigned dining as well as their Your Time Dining program (an open-seating format), cruisers of all preferences should feel right at home aboard Carnival Fantasy. This, in combination with the ship's many dining venues (including a casual buffet, sushi bar, their main dining rooms, and 24-hour room service) creates a fantastic dining experience for guests.

City Sports Park is an area on board Carnival Fantasy where you can take part in a number of sports. For instance, there's a basketball court, ping pong tables, jogging track, and 9-hole mini-golf course.

Other areas of interest on board Carnival Fantasy are an internet cafe, photo gallery, art gallery and piano bar.
