Carnival Fascination

October 2016 - Carnival Fascination to Caribbean - Southern

Birthday cruise

St .Lucia was beautiful, as was Barbados. Would love to return to both places again.  Really enjoyed the late departure time because it gave us time to explore Puerto Rico for almost 2 days, including El Yunque and the forts in Old San Juan.  The parts that I did not care for included the age and cleanliness of the ship.  Very dated looking, and various areas had unpleasant smells, including sewage and cigarette smoke.  Food was mediocre on many days, and cleanliness of buffet areas (seating areas in and outside) was really poor.  Ship seemed to be understaffed.  Heard many staff expressing how tired they were, complaining about lack of breaks.  Dining room staff was very friendly.  Casino staff was 50/50, and some were very sloppy with their dealing abilities.  Several dealers never spoke or made eye contact, and if they did, it was obligatory at best.  Ship seriously lacked activities. Comedians were excellent all around (all 4 were absolutely hilarious!)  STOP LETTING PEOPLE SMOKE IN THE CASINO or provide them with a closed room.  It's just gross to be forced to walk through that.

Carnival Pride

January 2015 - Carnival Pride to Caribbean - Western

Great bang for the buck!

Wonderful ports.  Nice ship.  Good food.  Fun entertainment.  Used off-ship excursions, awesome experiences, and very economical.  Room stewards were awesome people, very genuine, caring, and funny.  Would definitely love to repeat this cruise and visit these ports again.

doulamot's Tips

Carnival Fascination Carnival Fascination - Bring a waterproof camera. I always forget and I'm always sorry that I do. Bring an air freshener for your room. Bring a poncho for instant rainstorms. Suck it up and buy a belly bag for the entirely hands free safety of carrying wallets, etc.
George Town, Grand Cayman - Jumped on a local bus (van) for $2.50/pp to 7 mile beach (public). Rented chairs under palm trees for $5/pp, and chilled out on a beautiful beach. Food trucks in the parking lot with local cuisine. GREAT day.
Belize City, Belize - Took an off-site ecological tour about 1.5 hours away from port to Mayan ruins.
Cozumel, Mexico - Catamaran to the reefs. Off-site excursions are totally the way to go.
Carnival Pride Carnival Pride - Movies on the Lido big screen were a nice option. Comedians were funny. Guys' Hamburgers Joint was very good. Lots of room on the 10th deck to enjoy the views.
