We had a wonderful suite on the upper deck. It was very spacious. Have stayed in the regular balcony cabins and I get claustrophobic and the showers are way too small. I was in the room quite a bit and it is important to be comfortable. This suite had a nice jacuzzi tub with glass shower doors. The room was quiet for most part, except for one ocassion. Not sure where it was coming from but not a big deal. Didn't see any of the entertainment due to the late hours of performance. There wasn't a lot to do on the ship but that didn't bother me because I was on this for total relaxation. This ship only has one casual dining area (coconut grove cafe) and it doesn't serve but certain hours. You can get Pizza and a deli sandwich 24 hrs/day.  I am used to ships that have multi-casual dining areas and you can dine at anytime.  I missed not having any specialty dining restaurants on this ship.  You can dine in their main dining rooms as well, which you can choose a set time or choose the anytime dining. I personally like the option of having the choice to dine when I want to so we chose anytime dining. The food is alright, not a 4 or 5 star restaurant. I do feel that this ship was just a little under staffed. You waited in lines for everything, especially if you wanted a drink and this was all over the entire ship!  Carnival must have changed their disembarkation methods because I remember being able to carry off our luggage as soon as clearance was caused and not called by floors.  I can get off from Royal, Norwegian, and Princess right away. Not crazy about this new method.

Would I go on this trip again? Absolutely, it is a quick and easy trip for me!

FlagLyn's Tips

Nassau, Bahamas - Been there so many times and can't handle all the panhandling going on if you try to walk in town.
Carnival Fascination Carnival Fascination - We took the ATV ride, garden and beach excursion in Freeport. It was great!
Nassau, Bahamas - We didn't do much, been to Nassau too many times to count. If you don't like to haggle, stay away from the straw market.
Cococay (Cruiseline's Private Island) - Very relaxing! Unfortunately, it was too windy for an umbrella that day, so we cut our day short to get out of the sun. Entertainment on the Island was great!
Enchantment of the Seas Enchantment of the Seas - Breakfast is very good at the buffet. Make sure you book your reservations BEFORE you board the ship and select your seating departure day of the cruise!
Norwegian Dawn Norwegian Dawn - We didn't care for the dining room food or service, Try the specialty restaurants. The Garden Cafe was pretty good. Loved the Blue Lagoon for breakfast.
