This was my third Carnival Cruise and have to say was very unimpressed with the Camp Carnival. Trust me if you have a little one under age 2 they don't provide any activities for them. Wasn't as relaxing nor eventful, but the work staff did what they could. Just tried to work out a mutual understanding with the on board ships Customer desk, but got the usual feeling of "oh well, just deal with it" My wife and myself are starting to think of trying a different Cruise line on our next voyage.

This low of a rating because of no activities for children under 2.

Children's Programs

Very substandard....and seemed as if they didn't want children to come on the cruise.

Service and Staff

3 out of 5
As posted above not too impressed here.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
Very clean and updated. But wireless internet isn't available in all cabins. Also watch out if you have a cell phone, very tricky when it says you have service its very pricy and international even if you have a plan.

For having to be "downgraded" due to my little one, I'm still wondering why they charged her an extra $200 and didn't provide activities for her.

If your in Nassau definitely visit Atlantis. Nothing I've seen better in the world.
Don't Miss: Atlantis Resort

Know this before going...its very commercialized...nothing of much of historical. Seems nothing you could do that would be overpriced.
Don't Miss: Do the Conch Train Tour you get your most money's worth for it.

Pros: Sharing with the family the Carribean

Cons: Activities for under 2 yr olds

Recommends Carnival Fascination? Yes!
