4 Night Western Caribbean (Miami Roundtrip)
Sail Date: April 24, 2006
Ship: Carnival Fascination
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Traveled As: Couple

The ship was pretty large. It had a casino, many places to dine, mini golf, a spa, gym, pools, and drinks everywhere you turn. All the comforts of home come with you on your cruise. If you are hungry just about any time day or night, there is food to be had. You will have to ask a lot of questions if this is your first cruise because you are only given general direction most of the time.

Although we ported at Cozumel, we didn't go there. After the hurracane some excursions had to be moved to a nearby island. On the island we swam with the dolphins which was awesome. The gift shop was really expensive but you could but a custom DVD of your encounter with the dolphins.
Don't Miss: Go to the beach. The water was warm and very beautiful.

So much shopping! If you plan to shop you should consider going to one of the super shopper speaches held on the ship. There you will get an idea of where to go and what to see. You also get free stuff for going to the speaches.
Don't Miss: The butterfly habitat looked great and there is a pirate museum.

Pros: Stoping at the ports was great. We got to see different ways of life.

Cons: The ship was older so it lacked some of the frills of a newer ship.
