We had great experience in our first cruise. The food was the highlight. The room stateroom) was nice and very well maintained. All in all I would go on cruise with carnival again.

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
Excellent! The dine-in was beyond expectations. The buffet areas were crowded. If there is anything they can improve in dining area is supply good quality drinking water.


3 out of 5
Pool was too crowded. They should have separate kids and adult areas in the pool section.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Staff was very friendly, always smiling and willing to help.

Ship Quality

3 out of 5
Medium size cruise ship. In good condition. Some public areas were closed due to cleaning/ repair. They have three elevator zones but were busy. The decks were clean and very well maintained otherwise.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Very good. Comfortable beds, TV, decent sized bathroom and in-room safe box.
5 out of 5
Decent town. You can walk around or rent scooter or golf cart. The place has character.
Don't Miss: walk around and shopping. There is a nice museum across from the pier.

We took historic tour of the Nassau. This is a complete waste of money. ($29/person). The tour guide was not interested and there was not much to show. Their main attraction was a water tank that supplies water to Nassau. We have a larger one in our subdivision. Nassau is the most hyped place. Beaches in Florida panhandle (Ft Walton/ Destin) are far more nicer. We did not go to the Atlantis which was recommended.
Don't Miss: Straw market, if you like bargain shopping.

Pros: Quality of food, service

Cons: Drinking water was not very good. We ended up spending money buying bottled watter. ($4 per bottle)

Recommends Carnival Fascination? Yes!
