Carnival Fascination

January 2016 - Carnival Fascination to Caribbean - Bahamas

Cruise was decent

The cruise was pretty fun. It was very relaxing which was nice for our honeymoon. The room was very nice. The activities on the boat were pretty lame and most of them cost a lot of extra money. The majority of the scheduled activities were shopping or spa related or bingo which all cost extra. The food was decent...there was a very large variety and good availability/hours, but a lot of the food was just okay. It was mushy a lot of the time or bland, but not horrible. The formal dining was okay as well...service was subpar if you have a small and "less important" party of people...the food wasn't anything different from the buffets. Same food just tiny fancy portions. The shore excursions were very expensive and were pretty lame sounding for the most part. And if you check online most of them have bad ratings anyway. We ended up doing our own thing on shore and had a lot of fun with our tour guide we found ourselves for much cheaper! 

The boat was nice and pretty clean with fun things like a water slide and a mini golf course. 

Overall the most fun we had was staying in our room watching tv. The trip was very relaxing and we made our own fun on the boat and off, but not sure that I would book another cruise on this specific boat.

hillaryc472's Tips

Carnival Fascination Carnival Fascination - Bring games or something to entertain yourself, and make sure you are prepared to pay extra for just about everything.
Freeport, Grand Bahama Island - Unlike nassau, there isn't much to see when you get right off the boat here. There is a small straw market right off the boat but that's it, so be prepared to take a taxi to even be able to see anything here.
Nassau, Bahamas - Really pretty, lots to see and do. We had fun with our tour guide we got on our own (not through carnival). He found us when we got off the boat and took us to see a lot of cool things we would not have been able to see if we had purchased a shore excursion!
