Are you looking to book a cruise but not sure which cruise ship to take? With so many choices, it can be overwhelming. Yes, the Fantasy class ships are the oldest ships in Carnival’s fleet but offer some great benefits. One couple recently took their 100th cruise on the same Fantasy class ship, Carnival Sensation. Why? Here are a few reasons to book a cruise on a Carnival Fantasy class cruise ship.

Ports – Fantasy class ships will take you away from hustle and bustle of life and into the carefree blue waters of the Caribbean and Bahamas. A few of the popular ports that Fantasy class ships stop at include Cozumel, Mexico; Key West, Florida; Nassau, Bahamas; Half Moon Cay, Bahamas (Carnival Corporation’s private island); Grand Turk; Amber Cove, Dominican Republic; and George Town, Grand Cayman.
Ships/Embarkation Ports – Since there are eight different Fantasy class ships, it not only gives you a wider variety of ships to choose from, but you also have embarkation ports all around the county saving you from having to book expensive airfare. Embarkation ports include:
- Charleston, South Carolina
- Miami, Florida
- Port Canaveral, Florida
- Jacksonville, Florida
- Los Angeles, California
- New Orleans, Louisiana
- Tampa, Florida
Variety of Shorter Cruises – While some cruisers would never think of taking a cruise shorter than 7 nights, short 3-5 night cruises are perfect for those with limited vacation time or who are looking for a weekend getaway. Weekend getaways are a relaxing way to escape life for a few days.
They are also great for first time cruisers who want to test the waters of a cruise. After all, it was a short 4 night cruise to the Bahamas that started my cruise addition several years ago.
