We took our first cruise aboard the Fascination and enjoyed ourselves, having no doubts others would do the same. The worst experience with our trip happened prior to boarding the ship at the pier. Both the driver of the shuttle bus from Miami Airport and the baggage porters at the pier demanded a tip handling your baggage, going so far that the porters told us that they couldn't guarantee our bags would make it to the ship without a tip. They even blocked our way so as to make their point clear. Watch out for these robber barons!
