Carnival Fascination Cruise Review to Caribbean - Bahamas
Sail Date: March 28, 2011
Ship: Carnival Fascination
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Traveled As: Family (young children)
Reviewed: 6 years ago
Review SummaryThe ship has been updated in the recent years, so it was really nice. The food could've been better, especially the desserts. It almost seemed like the type of desserts you would get at a cheap Oriental buffet.
The staff was wonderful, and the shows were fabulous.
The ports were okay, but poorly timed. We were in Nassau midday to 10pm. Unfortunately, everything closes before 6pm, so the extra time was useless. We were in Key West 8am to 2:30. Nothing was open until after 10, and 4.5 hours was not nearly enough time to experience Key West at all.
Overall, we had a great time, and as I stated, the staff was wonderful, I just think they need to re-think their stops.

Don't Miss: Just realize that everything closes after 5 in Nassau, so if you want to go into town, do it early!
Don't Miss: Definitely do the on-off trolley, especially if you're only there for a few hours. Otherwise you'll spend all your time walking.
Pros: The staff is so efficient, and the water park on the ship was a hit with the kids.
Cons: The food could've been better, and we didn't dock in Key West near long enough.
