Where's the POOL...

Sail Date: August 01, 2011

Reviewed: 5 years ago

Traveled As: Singles/Friends

Room Type: Inside

The ship was all good....but when you go on a cruise you expext to get wet in an adequate pool....there was only room enough to stand in the small pool provided...I prefer Royal Caribbean ships w/solarium pool area that does not allow children!!!!! RC has adequate adult and family pool areas...Carnival really blew it on this point===otherwise I'd sale again w/Carnival.

Pros: The ports-Comedians-Food-Drinks

Cons: The Pool w/standing room only-was unable to even think of using it!!!!

Recommends Carnival Fascination? No.

Ship Quality
Food and Dining
Dinning room was great---anytime pizza and panini station good....buffet-best jerk chicken ive ever had....breakfast room service limited.
Cabin / Stateroom
Service and Staff
Children's Programs
They loved the small pool!!!!!
Half Moon Cay, Bahamas (Private Island)
Snorkled from shore...beautiful beach
Nassau, Bahamas
Loved the snorkle excursion we booked thru cheap tickets...we had 3 snorkle stops-the last one w/sharks-I opted out for this but my friend was brave enough to do it---at the end the sharks all come to the top at the back of the boat-great photo opportunity. Great straw market down by Senor Frogs-got a deal on a bag for 40.00....The free necklaces the kids offer are not free--they want a donation after they give it to you-so dont accept a free one unless you like it.
Don't Miss: Sorry we missed getting conch chowder so we'll have to go back....
