Carnival to Refurb and Revisit its Fantasy

Tuesday, September 09, 2003
Carnival Cruise Lines' 2,056-passenger, 70,000-ton Fantasy is currently undergoing an extensive multi-million-dollar refurbishment as part of its scheduled five-week drydock. The refurbishment, which is taking place at the Freeport Shipyard in Freeport, Bahamas, will include a new lobby bar, remodeled cabins and a redesigned promenade.

Each of Fantasy's 1,028 staterooms will receive a complete makeover with new wall coverings, furniture, bedding and linens. In-cabin bathrooms will be fully remodeled, as well, with updated vanities, new tile work and shampoo and soap dispensers.

Via Marina, an enclosed double-width promenade, will get a facelift, with elegant new furniture and a decorative marble floor with carpet inlays, while The Forum, the Fantasy's conference facility, has been reconfigured so that it can be utilized as both a meeting space and entertainment venue.

The namesake vessel in Carnival's Fantasy-class, the 70,000-ton SuperLiner entered service in 1990 and operates year-round three- and four-day Bahamas voyages from Port Canaveral, Fla.
