June 2015 - 4 Night Bahamas (Jacksonville Roundtrip) Cruise on Carnival Fascination
Had an absolute great time with my wife and three of my children, 8, 11, 14. Each of which also claim to have had a great time. Staff was wonderful, food was extraordinary, and entire boat was spotless. My only gripe was the day of debarkation. All non-US citizens were coralled at 0700 in one of the clubs. With my wife being German, we had to attend as well. Customs officials were nearly an hour late getting to the meeting and when they did, one went for coffee instead of processing paperwork. There was no coordination with the passengers to keep us informed of what we were doing nor how the process would work. With a mandatory departure out of the staterooms by 0830, we were stressed rather quickly since our children were still in our room and we were stuck on the other end of the boat still at 815. Leave it to the government to give us our early reality check back from an otherwise glorious vacation.
