OVERVIEW

 Carnival Fantasy was the lead ship in Carnival's
Fantasy-class.  This design proved so successful that
eight ships were built based on the Fantasy.  For many
years, the Fantasy-class ships were the work horses of
the Carnival fleet and they continue to play an important
role in Carnival today.  

Built at a cost of $225 million, Fantasy entered service
in 1990 and was at the time, one of the largest cruise
ships in service.  Indeed, Fantasy was billed as a modern
"superliner."

Cruise ships, of course, have gotten bigger since then.  In
fact, Carnival's latest Dream class ships are almost twice
as big as the Fantasy class.  But, as a result,  Fantasy now
appeals to passengers looking for the intimacy of a
smaller ship.

The Carnival Fantasy that you see today is not the
Carnival Fantasy that was launched in 1990.  The line has
spent millions to keep Fantasy and her sisters viable in
the American market.  This has included adding new
features such as the Carnival Waterworks and the
adults-only Serenity Retreat.  There has also been a
change in focus over the years so that the programming
and amenities are now more geared towards young
families.

Although each of the Fantasy-class ships was built to the
same design, they are all quite distinct,  Interior designer
Joe Farcus used a different theme for each ship.  His goal
was to place the guests in a new and fun environment that
is unlike their commonplace experiences. For the
Fantasy, he used the theme "Mystic Muses".    Although
there have been some changes to the interior decor over
the years, one can still see areas that are unmistakably
Farcus such as the Cleopatra Piano Bar and the Cats
Lounge.

   Since the line's founding by Ted Arison in 1972,
Carnival's strategy has been to bring cruising to the
average person.  Carnival Fantasy does this in two ways.  
First, Fantasy offers a quality cruise experience at an
affordable price.  Second, Fantasy, like several of her
sisters, is based in a port that is not served by numerous
cruise ships.  This makes cruising more accessible to the
people who live in that part of the country.

 Carnival Fantasy is based year-round in Charleston,
South Carolina sailing primarily to the Bahamas.
