I would imagine there has got to be something going on behind the scenes between Carnival and Port of Mobile because the Holiday isn't going to last forever, although she does keep hanging in there with bells ringing! The Fantasy in Mobile for 4/5 day cruises and a Destiny or Conquest class ship in New Orleans for 7-day cruises would be the perfect fit right now - but I'd imagine there are a bunch of incentives right now to concentrate both in New Orleans, which may be why Mobile hasn't started digging the turning basin. I bet if they went ahead, a larger ship would suddenly show up. "Dig it and they will come!"

Hi Samantha! We had Anthony from India who is very close with Stan. Anthony gets to "bring in" all of the new ships and then comes back to the Fantasy after everything is set up. It was very interesting talking to him, especially with him being on every ship for its first cruise!

Hi TN, and Welcome back! Thanks for the great review. I have an odd question...Did the cabin bathrooms still have the old small tiles? I had read they were going to replace the tiles. Just curious, I haven't sailed on her since 2002 after they re-did the promenade.

Those putred pink tiles were gone, or at least covered up with a white fiberglass insert. Also halogen lighting for the bathroom mirror.

We get it right here.

Sorry Emily, I couldn't resist.

I just do alot of reading about Carnival on my part, both in print and online. The best Info is from actual cruisers though I have found. And thanks TN for your reply.

Emily go ahead and book! We are going to book the Fantasy again for Halloween week 2008. Dave...want to change your Fantasy booking to that week? Halloween is a blast on the ship, at least it was on Holiday and I imagine Fantasy would be even better.

the fantasy is not a small ship. same as sensation, i been one both out of nola. the hoiday is a smaller ship.

carnival said if you been on the sen or fan. you will not enjoy it.

my 1st cruise was on the sen. it was great!!!
booked another one as soon as i could, it got canceled due to hurricane katrina, the sensation get decommsioned for repairs if you recall,
so we got a booking on the fantasy,so lay out of boat,, everything was ok , but the food wasnt up to par with the first crusie,
on that cruise , i thinked the ''cooks'' thought people liked there food with blood running out of it. that was the only real down fall, and the late night dinning, or waittress was rude, i had to eat a filet mingon with water, cause they didnt have cokes there. where with the sensation or watier was nice as could be..any way theres alway 24 hour pizza ,and ice cream.

what ever you decide, you will have a great time.

i did but lots of neg , things on that comment card.

maid room service both times where great , my advise is...if you pay all the fees and tips up ront ,,always give your maid a 20 dollar bill, that way you will get excellent room service,, thay come at least 3 times a day to straighten sheets , new towels ect. < anamials LOL.
the second cruise i went on we didnt get off the bost , the dock was out , due to hurricane emily. and we roda the wake in after hurricane cindy passed , i was getting i little sea sick then cause boat was rocking, plus i had to many drinks or the boat , im sure didnt help.

well have fun !
