3 Night Bahamas (Miami Roundtrip)
Sail Date: May 09, 2008
Ship: Carnival Fascination
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 10 years ago

We felt that we were stuck aboard with nothing to do. The pool is very small and with children on board you can't swim. There is a huge tube slide right in the middle of the pool. There were kids in the "adult only" hottub. The food was average, nothing spectacular.

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
Food was good but I've had better fine dining at a hometown restaurant.

We did see 2 shows with dancing and singing; which were great. They had a "best hairy chest contest" on an all cruising day and I thought I was back in college. Very tacky.

Service and Staff

3 out of 5
We found that if you purchased a softdrink card and asked a waiter for a softdrink they were rather irritated thinking they wouldn't get much for a tip.We had asked one employee to take our picture and he said "No" and walked off. We really didn't having any other contact with people. Our waiters in the fine dining room were very good and tipped them plenty the last night.

Ship Quality

3 out of 5
Very clean but could use some updating.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Very clean room! The bed was very comfortable. We had a nice room with a window. Reasonable storage for your clothing, etc.

Pros: Our stateroom was very clean

Cons: Not much to do onboard

Recommends Carnival Fascination? No.
