Awesome Vacation on the Water!

Sail Date: June 08, 2009

Reviewed: 6 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Oceanview

This was our 1st cruise and surely not our last! The ship was awesome and much bigger than imagined! There were activities for ALL ages which is a great thing for families or you can choose to do absolutley "nothing", just enjoy the fresh air and sunshine! Tons of storage space and our oceanview stateroom was plenty big enough.. Loved, loved, loved the animal towel creations our stateroom steward placed on our bed every night!! Beds were a bit soft though, for us old people who tend to prefer a more firm mattress... but we made it through with a massage or two!! The staff were very friendly and eager to assist us. Dining room dinner was exceptional - especially the desserts (warm melting chocolate cake - OMG!!!). They say the average person gains 2 lbs a day!!! We did visit the gym the 1st day, but ate pretty sensible and only gained 3-4 lbs instead of the dreaded 12 lbs!! I could go on and on and on.... It was FABULOUS!! I am confident we will cruse again! Bon Voyage!!

Pros: Fresh Air and Sun!! Weather could not have been better!

Cons: Flies were all around raw meat waiting to be cooked at grill

Recommends Carnival Fascination? Yes!

Key West, Florida
Beautiful city! Lots of shopping to do in Key West or just "window" shop!
Nassau, Bahamas
Not at all what I expected... Atlantis was beautiful but walking through the town was smelly...reminded me of Bourbon Street after Mardi Gras...
Don't Miss: Atlantis Resort
