August 2014 - Carnival Fascination to Caribbean - Bahamas
This was our first time cruising. It was our 20th anniversary and we wanted something special and memorable. This cruise was just that. At times we forgot we were even on a boat in the middle of the ocean. Our servers remembered our names and anything you asked you could pretty much get. The excursions were wonderful, we snorkeled in Freeport (my husband loved it, after he was skeptical), then relaxed with a 1hr massage on the beach in Nassau. Would have enjoyed that a little better had the beach not been too crowded, but it was nice. I am looking forward to our next one. This boat is a little older and not as big as others, however it was great for a first time. We did note that we would probably NOT take our children on a cruise on this ship, maybe one of Carnivals kid friendlier boats or perhaps another cruise line all together. Didn't feel it was a great "Kids" environment. We did use the Faster to the Fun choice and felt it was well worth it as we stood in a line of 20 while there were hundreds in the other lines. It also got us a little better service. Will purchase that again!
