"Our first Cruise Experience"

Sail Date: August 07, 2006

Reviewed: 10 years ago

Traveled As: Family (young children)

Room Type: Inside

Our family truly enjoyed our first cruise aboard the Fascination.
We were truly impress with the willingness and friendliness of the
crew. And, yes I am generalizing "crew" because "all" the staff that
we encountered, whether it was housekeeping, front desk, excursion,
children camp, waitresses , photographers,and so forth........ were
most courteous. There was not one person that did not make us feel
special. The shows , specially the comedians, were very
entertaining. One thing we wished for was more time at the ports of call.
We very rushed and felt like we did not have enought time to shop, or
eat and the destinations.

Pros: The Nightly Entertainment

Cons: Amount of time spent at each port.

Children's Programs
My children found some of the activies , like t-shirt painiting, cookie
decorating a little dull for their age......9 and 11.
Ship Quality
We were truly impress with the cleanlliness of the ship.
You constantly saw people in the stairs the elevators,
and decks cleaning, picking up and maintaining the ship.
Food and Dining
Great service, good food. Too much food.
Cabin / Stateroom
Very comfortable and always serviced.
Cozumel, Mexico
We did the jeep adventure. The guides were fun, enjoyed snorkling on the beautiful clean waters of Cozumel, the food was fantastic but felt completly rushed to get back to the boat. Did not have enough time to shop after the excursion was rush rush back to the boat
Key West, Florida
Not enough time on this port of call.
