Carnival Fascination

July 2016 - Carnival Fascination to Caribbean - Southern

Great cruise!

We have been on this cruise three or four times and each time is better than the others.  Now we no longer take shore excursions.  We just get off the ship and take a taxi to a nice beach.  This cruise was a good experience.  Getting on the ship was very easy and made even simpler because of our 'gold' VIPF status on Carnival.  We got into our cabins by 2 pm (for a 10 pm departure).  My sister was very sick for the first two days of the cruise and the Cabin Attendant (Putu) and dining room staff went out of their way to make her comfortable and get her to eat. Planning on taking this cruise again next year.

Grandeur of the Seas

July 2014 - Grandeur of the Seas to Bermuda

We had a great time!

We were at first hesitant about taking a cruise with only one stop but after having experienced the Bermuda cruise on the Grandeur of the Seas we were happy with our experience.  Bermuda was beautiful and we felt lucky to have almost 3 full days to explore the island.  We spent the first afternoon/evening doing a glass bottomed boat to the Bermuda Triangle.  We then took a five-hour island tour where we got a great overview of the island and saw some amazing sights.  Day 3 was spent scuba diving on the many wrecks surrounding Bermuda so over the course of our time on the island we did a variety of things.  One thing we really liked was not having to fly to Florida or San Juan to get on the ship.  Baltimore is close by to where we live so we were able to spend a day and the night before the cruise having some great seafood and exploring the inner harbour.  Service on the cruise was the usual high standard.  We would recommend this cruise to anyone interested in taking it.

ccoombe's Tips

Philipsburg, St. Maarten - Took the water taxi right by the ship over to Great Bay Beach for shopping, beach time and the Hard Rock Café.
Carnival Fascination Carnival Fascination - I always bring too many clothes for this cruise and not enough bathing suits and cover ups. Make sure to bring enough toiletries like shampoo, conditioner etc. It's not easy to find good brands in the ship's gift shop or in the shops onshore.
Baltimore, Maryland - Spend the night before or after the cruise in Baltimore and explore the Inner Harbour and eat some great seafood at Phillips.
