4 Night Western Caribbean (Miami Roundtrip)

Ship: Carnival Fascination

We've been on 4 previous cruises and were quite pleasantly surprised by the "Carnival" experience. The food was outstanding and the crew "Mostly Eastern Europeans" couldn't have been nicer. The 2 ports of call Key West and Playa Del Carmen were 2 excellent choices. Make sure to check out Senor Frogs at Playa Del Carmen. We would definitely look at Carnival for our next cruise experience.

Been on a Royal Caribbean and Costa cruise ships and the food here was as good if not better than either of the other 2 lines

Looking for a possible vacation site in the winter and got a good idea of what Key West is like. The stay was short only 5 hours of "Off Ship" time.

We had a good activity "Power Snorkeling" Reasonably priced and a lot of fun. After the activity we stopped in town and had a great time at Senor Frogs with all the staff.
Don't Miss: Power snorkeling

Pros: The food

Cons: Pool size
