Room Type: Inside

We recently sailed with the Carnival Fascination out of Jacksonville on a 5 day cruise to Key West and the Bahamas. It was a birthday cruise for my 30 year old daughter. There were 5 adults and 3 children. It was a wonderful time and the Fascination is a beautiful ship. The staff members were so attentive and made sure we had everything we needed. I can't say enough about Camp Carnival for the children. They literally did not want to leave!! The food was excellant and everywhere all the time. It was a VERY memorable and fund vacation for my family and my daughter's first cruise.

Pros: The service and food were exceptional. We had 3 children with us and Camp Carnival was just spectacular for them. We met so many new friends from all over the US.

Cons: The only problem we had was the shift change at the water park. The staff member minding the water slide was very leinient about letting our 4 year old ride the big slide. But when the shift change came the next staff member wouldn't let him go because he was an inch too short. Not a good thing,

We did the Atlantis water park and Dolphin Cay experience. My daughter and grand daughter did the shallow water swim with the Dolphins. Absolutely beautiful place!!
Don't Miss: Atlantis, Dolpin Cay, aquarium....a MUST. We also visited the straw market at the dock.
Key West, Florida
Mile marker zereo, southern most point of the US...for pictures. The Keno factory for the best made sandals is a must and if you are a parrot head, Margaritaville!! Irish Kevin's on Duval Street was a blast.
