5 Night Bahamas (Jacksonville Roundtrip)
Sail Date: December 25, 2010
Ship: Carnival Fascination
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Traveled As: Large Group
Reviewed: 7 years ago
Staff worked very hard w/accommodations (in the cabins), waiting on us during meals & overall gracious whenever we made even minor requests.

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
Dining rooms, room service & even the 24 hr Lido Deck.


5 out of 5
Comedy show was so so. I had a better time watching the cruise director (Jen) MC the adult-rated Newlywed (& not so newlywed) Game.

Children's Programs

1 out of 5
Brought my 17 yr old & 9 yr old. Neither enjoyed the activities. Opted for staying in the room, ordering room service, checking out the Lido Deck for the 24 hr food.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Always accommodating & friendly.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
Always clean, even in in the corners.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Beds were comfortable. Room temperature too cold (even when I turned off the fan on the ceiling). Pillows were not the foam kind that reset to original shape.
1 out of 5
Timing must be off. Shops were closed (there was some sort of parade). Hard Rock restaurant was closed (only souvenir portion was open).

Pros: Being waited on

Cons: Not stipulating beforehand that family members wish to be seated together

Recommends Carnival Fascination? Yes!
