Amazing time!

This was our first cruise and it was our honeymoon. We had an amazing time on this ship. The ship was beautiful and we had a great time just exploring the ship and all of its many areas. There was no lack of food on this ship and it all was delicious! The dining experience at night with its three course meals was a wonderful experience and I highly recommend going every night as the menu changes each night and there is something for everyone. Nassau was a nice port with a lot of shopping and the port itself was beautiful. Freeport was a little less impressive and we were not very happy about the twenty five minute taxi ride to the beach in a cramped van with no air conditioning. I would do the cruise all over again but we would probably skip Freeport and just stay on the ship. Overall I would recommend anyone try it at least once and Carnival is the way to go! We are already planning on going next year with both of our families.

Pros: Loved the ship, food, everything!

Cons: Freeport was a bit disappointing

Recommends Carnival Fascination? Yes!

Freeport, Grand Bahama Island
Very run down, long cramped cab ride to the beach areas and shops. The only saving grace is that the water at the beaches was very warm and you can drink alcohol on the streets!
Don't Miss: The beaches are very nice and the water was probably around 70 degrees.
Nassau, Bahamas
Large variety of shopping, port was very colorful as well as the architecture.
