Cruising Key West & Nassau Bahamas

Sail Date: July 20, 2009

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Inside

The Fascination is not as nice as the Conquest. The service was slow and some are not too friendly. We asked our steward for some extra glasses and he told us to call room service. It seemed all they wanted was our money, money, money. $20 for 1 game of BINGO...not worth it. Conquest would at least play several games of bingo on 1 card. The evening shows were average. The girl singer was FANTASTIC. The boy singer not so good. The dancers were so so. The afternoon people that bus the tables in the buffet areas stood around and talked instead of cleaning tables. When they did, they didn't always wipe down the tables. The standup comedy was great!

Pros: Karoke Bar was great! Trevor was great! Our waiter (SZOLT) was great too!

Cons: Buffetts - need more variety....change it up a bit. The ART auction was a joke!

Recommends Carnival Fascination? Yes!

We went on our own. Did not book an excursion. People were very friendly and seemed glad to see tourist. Hard Rock Cafe was our favorite. They go above and beyond to make you comfortable. We got there before they opened. A little fellow came out and asked if we wanted anything to drink. We sat on the veranda and drank iced tea before they even opened.
Don't Miss: Hard Rock Cafe, museum with all the statues, and just walking about town.
Nassau, Bahamas
We waited a good while before we were allowed into the customs area. It was extremely hot. The drive to Atlantis was nice and very convenient. I enjoyed with beach there and the underground aquariums. The people there were very friendly. I did not like the vendors hassling you on the beach. The little guy that put our umbrella up was nice but the cost to rent it was outragous! ($30.00) A mixed drink was $10.50 and it was watered down by the time it got back to us. But overall, Atlantis is something to see.
Don't Miss: Atlantis
