 Carnival Fantasy

In 1990, the Fantasy became the first of 8 ships in her class. The Fantasy truly lives up to her name. The Fantasy is part of Carnivals "Evolutions of Fun" program with which she will be upgraded to include a Carnival Waterworks water park, a Serenity Adult Retreat and a renovated spa area. Fantasy has a Club O2 for the teens.
