3 Night Bahamas (Miami Roundtrip)
Sail Date: August 15, 2008
Ship: Carnival Fascination
Cabin Type: Inside
Traveled As: Family (young children)
Reviewed: 9 years ago
The ship had a bad odor, the outdoor and indoor grills smelled and the pool area was not kid friendly. We thought this was a kid friendly ship with a splash area for the children, there was one little tiny pool for the smaller children and the other pools where so small and crowed no one could get in and the slide was closed most of the time. The slide had a height restriction and when it was open no one could get on. This ship was a party ship for grown ups. We did enjoy the shows and camp carnival for the children. Only problem was the shows started after 10pm and you had to pay camp after 10pm. Not very happy!
