I was on the fantasy earlier this month. Loved every minute of it. The ship was GORGEOUS. Especially since it was decorated for Christmas. I have a trip booked for Jan on the Carnival Breeze. I got a really good price and it is a chance for my mom and I to go away together. I am trying to wrap my head around the fact that it will not be Disney and trying to lower my expectations for the trip. I guess I should stop reading reviews about the ship bec some of them are less than glowing... Has anyone gone on carnival and had a good time?
