mixed feelings by Vbass7

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Family (young children)

I have mixed reviews about this cruise. Tragedy struck in the beginning and the staff handled it very well; but the overall experience had me uneasy. I felt a bit bored on the boat; but my son had a blast! They need to do better with food management since I found a string of hair in the honey mustard and reported it. They also need to do better with managing the kids at teens club - staff should know when children come and leave out and if there is a change in the kids’ itinerary. The staff were friendly and helpful for the most part. Also, there should be more finger food available throughout the day. I understand there are restrictions given the number of people on the boat; but more options are helpful.

Lovely vacation! Ports of call were grand! Staff and crew spectacular! by gregalanw

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Great service. Nice accommodation. Great Casino Host Ms. Myrie. Tried all specialty restaurants—- fine fare, but Dining room not bad either. Did we really need the drink package for over 600.00? We probably had 10 drinks each. Must rethink this. Perhaps not buy spa services in advance or on at sea days. Buy discounted services onboard on port days!

Best Cruise by GabeBonnie

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Our favorite cruise so far. Will book the Freedom of the Seas in the future. I do wish the internet were better as speed was slower than expected and to many interruption of service. Food is excellent and a great crew.

Another fun cruise by ILikeToMoveIt

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Family (older children)

This was our 3rd cruise with Carnival. Most was just as we expected and even better in some cases. Didn't get a chance to explore the whole ship. Guess I will have to go again!

Taxi necessary cruise by amypaynter

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Family (older children)

I wish we would have known that every port you go, be prepared with the local currency to pay for a taxi to get anywhere. No credit cards accepted for taxis. And once you get off the ship, you are literally attacked by the local transportation people getting you to use the taxi because they know you need a taxi to go anywhere

Fantastic Caribbean Cruise by Megardner

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Large Group

Overall, I would highly recommend this cruise. It was nice waking up to a different island each day. We spent a lot of time at each port so did not have much time to experience the onboard amenities. The main dining staff and our room attendant were attentive and friendly. We could not have asked for better service.

What A Honeymoon!!! by ECD23

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

For our first cruise and our honeymoon, Royal Caribbean delivered. This was a cruise that was not only worth doing but worth doing again. There's too much too see in one trip. You have to go back more than once.

Amazing yet frustrating by familyvaca51463

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Family (older children)

Overall, we loved this cruise. We had 3 balcony cabins for 7 passengers. The negatives: The halls were obnoxiously loud at night. Young kids out until 2am with no parents around running and yelling in halls. (That has seemingly become a new normal on all of our cruises) Large groups of passengers seemed to take over clubs and shows making it at times uncomfortable and irritating. At times some staff seemed slightly rude, which was rather shocking. Positives: The ship is beautiful and laid out well so lines typically aren't an issue. Decks are spread out so you don't feel like sardines. The sea days are the best! 8 night cruising somehow is so much better than 7!

Mediocre Cruise by andreydubovik

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Family (older children)

Overall this is a budget cruise. The food was ok, the service was ok. The ship layout not great and overall this ship needs updates and it can make you sea sick. If you want relaxing time with adults don’t go on this cruise to many kids. All the alcohol is overpriced. 1 glass of wine 15 dollars, 1 beer -12 dollars. Casino don’t play by one cent you don’t win much. We spend at least $500 extra for each person to do some excursions and having 5 drinks.

Best ports make for an unforgettable week with the family by southernfried

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Family (older children)

We knew ahead of time from having done this cruise on this ship before that the Fascination isn't the most appealing ship in the Carnival fleet, with few of the amenities that we've enjoyed on other ships. But it was well worth the sacrifice of onboard entertainment and convenience because of the incredible ports on the itinerary. Starting with San Juan, these are by far the best collection of ports offered by Carnival and they didn't disappoint. What made this cruise all the more special is that we brought our two adult children with us in celebration of my wife's 60th birthday. from the ports, to the excursions (we did three), to the food, to the hospitality of the crew to all the photos we have as memories, these seven days were an unforgettable experience we will always cherish.

Wonderful trip by hjmeshon

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Large Group

The ship itself was nice. The shows were wonderful. The staff was friendly and personable...especially Christay from anytime dining and late night buffet. He was so attentive and made meals with him enjoyable. He has such a wonderful personality.
