4 Night Bahamas (Jacksonville Roundtrip)
Sail Date: June 02, 2011
Ship: Carnival Fascination
Cabin Type: Suite
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 6 years ago

Staff was very friendly, ship was clean and it really didn't seem too crowded. This was my 3rd trip on this ship and I won't do it again. The staff has been cut; last cruise our concierge was constantly at our side; this trip we saw him only about 5 times total. He was very good, just not very available. The difference in the food last year and this year is so noticable. I tasted canned food everywhere. Literally, canned soups, sauces, etc. I know this is a budge cruise and it's probably good for familes with small children. We won't go on another Carnival cruise. Our fault for not stepping up; but this is the ONLY ship and cruise line from our home port.

Institutional type food. I've had (really I have) better food in a hospital cafeteria.
