The Carnival Fantasy is the lead Fantasy class cruise ship for Carnival Cruise Lines, and is the oldest cruise ship in the fleet.[2] The Carnival Fantasy currently sails year round five-six night cruises and seasonal seven night cruises out of Charleston, South Carolina. The five night cruises visits Nassau and Freeport, 6 night cruises visits Key West, Freeport, and Nassau, the seasonal six night cruises visits Kings Warf, Bermuda, and the 7 night cruises visits Grand Turk, Half Moon Cay, and Nassau.[3] She went into service in 1990, and was initially based out of the Port of Miami as the first new ship ever placed on 3 and 4 day Bahamas cruises from Miami. On September 17, 2009 Carnival announced that the Fantasy would be based out of Mobile, Alabama to replace the Holiday[4] until the Carnival Elation begins operations in Mobile. On September 17, 2009 Carnival announced that the Carnival Fantasy is going to Charleston, South Carolina.
