Carnival Fantasy has delighted countless passengers since she launched. It's no surprise that she was the original Fantasy class ship, a series that truly showed the world how fun is done.
The Carnival Fantasy is today fitted with all the modern conveniences, and once onboard, you'll not only see it, but you'll hear it for yourself. Listen for the "ahh" of relaxation at Serenity Adult-Only Retreat, the "ahhhhh" of extreme relaxation at Spa Carnival... but don't miss the "aaaaaaaaah!!" of thrills at WaterWorks, our onboard water park featuring Twister Waterslide and Splash Park!
Speaking of modern conveniences, Carnival Fantasy has some of the latest food and drink spots, located right where you want them: alfresco. Guy's Burger Joint serves up signature burgers designed by, you know, that Guy Fieri guy while BlueIguana Cantina is there to help you kick those no-taco blues. RedFrog Rum Bar and BlueIguana Tequila Bar may be rivals, but a little friendly competition goes a long way towards quenching your thirst for fun.
It doesn't end there either. When was the last time you spent an evening at a piano bar themed like ancient Egypt? Yeah, that's exactly what we thought... and we know exactly where you can find one.
You'll find all this - and more - when you join the long list of delighted folks who've enjoyed a vacation on Carnival Fantasy.
Wanna splish - and splash - the day away? Head on over to WaterWorks, Carnival's onboard waterpark. First up, there's the Twister Waterslide, hundreds of feet of spiraling awesomeness that starts you off high in the air and gets you down low with one of the fastest, wettest rides you'll find anywhere. Select ships have side-by-side racing slides, which make serious competition seriously fun. Wear your speed suit for Speedway Splash, which features hundreds of feet of racing action, plus special lighting effects you'll experience on the road to victory. DrainPipe ends with one major swirl of a finish, while PowerDrencher takes soaking seriously - imagine the biggest bucket of water you've ever seen, raining down on you from above. And this isn't just kids' stuff - the young at heart are encouraged to zoom and splash around too! (WaterWorks configurations vary by ship.)
Hasbro, The Game Show
You've played Connect 4 and Yahtzee, but have you ever played giant versions of them onstage in a competition that puts your gaming skills to the test? You'll have your chance when you take part in Hasbro, The Game Show. From SORRY! SLIDERS to YAHTZEE BOWLING, CONNECT 4 BASKETBALL, OPERATION SAM DUNK and SIMON FLASH, you can team up with your friends and family to win great prizes, all in front of a live audience. Be sure to check your FunTimes for show times so you don't miss out on the action... or the prizes.
The Punchliner Comedy Club
Comedy clubs on land... well, it's kinda funny. Nobody likes paying cover charges, and you know that two-drink minimum? They've gotta be joking! You won't find either of these at The Punchliner Comedy Club aboard your Carnival cruise. Up on stage you will find some real pros who know how to wedge a little laughter into anyone's evening. You can count on these comedians to not hold back either. Since some of them get up and say exactly what's on their mind, we also schedule family-friendly performances... so the only red faces in the audience are from laughing a little too hard.
Serenity Adult Only Retreat
Somebody at Carnival knows just what you need, and it's pretty much exactly the Serenity Adult-Only Retreat. Look, you'll still be on the same ship as the kids, the hoopla, and all the Carnival-style excitement... but you could easily forget, because when you're at Serenity you could not be further from it all. The world you'll find yourself in is one of complete peace, sea breezes, swaying hammocks and, of course, a nearby bar. It's the place to get done the kind of stuff you just can't seem to do anywhere else - reconnect with your partner, finish that book, or do absolutely, blissfully, nothing at all.
When was the last time you got up and danced... at the theater? Playlist Productions takes tunes you know and presents them like you've never experienced before - past favorites become full-blown musical productions featuring singers and dancers bringing down the house. Enjoy the spicy sounds of Latin Nights, or the larger-than-life favorites (and personalities) of Divas. Don't forget Motor City - which will have you dancing in your seat - or even The Brits!, a swingin' revue of your across-the-pond favourites. Enter the center of groove with the passionate Heart of Soul. Rounding out the lineup is the anything-but-square Getaway Island, the arena-shaking sounds of Epic Rock, the piano-pounding 88 Keys, the totally bad-meaning-good 80s Pop to the Max, plus the funky, sophisticated... and not at all exclusive Studio VIP, where everyone's welcome to come and get down!
Even if you don't "know" much about art, of course you can still tell when you like something - who needs a refined palette to know when a piece is good? Carnival leaves snobbish cultural pretensions ashore, and makes art something that everyone can enjoy with a series of events designed to bring great art where it belongs - to the people. Take part in an art-themed battle of the sexes or check out showcases highlighting the best of, say, European artists or world-famous pop artist Peter Max. You can't get any closer to great art... without buying it.
Believe us, you've got a rock star, pop idol or country crooner inside you. Let yours out aboard a Carnival cruise - take the stage and grab the mic because our ears are waiting. Every ship features live karaoke action, so whether your musical dreams are built on classic riffs or modern hits, come aboard and check our huge catalog - you'll find hot tracks you've been burning to perform. Ready to hit us with an '80s classic? Sing some Motown? Bring the boy-band? Indulge away - karaoke happens all throughout your cruise. Your moment in the spotlight is here.
Get up and get down at the most happenin' club in the Caribbean. Our DJs are spinning today's hottest hits and yesterday's golden oldies, guaranteed to get you out of your seat and tapping your feet. (Hey, that rhymed!) Whether you're doing the robot or the worm or just swaying to the music, you'll want to dance 'til the sun rises. Or at least 'til last call. Oh yeah... our themed parties are pretty fun too.
Did you know that your bartender will be glad to list the ingredients of your favorite onboard cocktail? Give it a shake once you get home... but first, make sure your bar is ready for action. Stock up on spirits at the onboard Fun Shops! Here, the savings start with up to 50% off prices on land, but they really add up when you subtract the taxes - every bottle at The Fun Shops, even the top-shelf stuff, is tax-free and duty-free. (The bottles are also bigger than most - we're talking 33% bigger, 1 liter.) Raise a glass and drink deeply of great vacation memories... and vacation savings.
