Fantasy Charleston Cruises

If you are looking for a good cheap cruise then look no further than the Carnival Fantasy which cruises from Charleston, South Carolina to the Bahamas throughout the year. Cruises in January can be purchased for less than $300 and last minute deals can be found on other sailings.

The Carnival Fantasy

Having been built in 1990, the Fantasy is one of Carnival’s older ships. The Fantasy however was refurbished in 2008 and now features many of Carnival’s top attractions such as the adults only Serenity, Carnival WaterWorks and City Sports Park. The Fantasy may not be the biggest ship at sea but she is a great ship to test out your cruise legs. My wife and a couple of friends have all started their love for cruising on board the Fantasy.


This port city is rich with history and southern hospitality and if you have never been then I recommend staying an extra day to walk down the historic battery or visit Fort Sumter where the Civil War began.

The Islands

The Fantasy visits both Freeport and Nassau, Bahamas and on six day trips makes a stop in Key West where you can visit the southern most part in the United States. Nassau is home to the Atlantis Resort which is located on Paradise Island. It will be the first thing you notice as you sail into port and is only a quick water taxi away. Land taxi’s will get you there as well but the water taxi is quicker.

The Fantasy also has six day sailings to Bermuda in which the ship docks overnight in King’s Wharf for around $500. This is a great way to see the pink sand beaches of Bermuda without paying the high hotel fees and airfare to get there.
