3 Night Bahamas (Miami Roundtrip)
Sail Date: June 06, 2008
Ship: Carnival Fascination
Cabin Type: Inside
Traveled As: Family (older children)
Reviewed: 10 years ago
The buffet food was hotdogs and hamburgers daily - the pools were too small and there weren't enough of them. The cost of alcohol was outrageous. We paid for four days of carbonated beverages but on the fourth day there wasn't even ice to be had in the Coconut Grove Bar and Grill so basically I paid 12 dollars for two warm diet cokes!!! If you had an early flight then you didn't even get to use the beverage card. There weren't enought activities for us or our children (ages 10 and 13). When you did try to get a drink or coke you had to wait in line for a bartender. If I ever cruise again Carnival will be the last resort for us.

It was nice to see Nassau but the locals literally hound you for your business. Didn't try and restaruants. Atlantis was beautiful
Don't Miss: Atlantis resort - I think we might even do an all inclusive there

Pros: the ocean, our cabin steward and the sit down dinners.

Cons: costs, amount of people, buffet food, size and amounts of pools

Recommends Carnival Fascination? No.
