Wonderful cruise.

Sail Date: September 03, 2011

Reviewed: 5 years ago

Traveled As: Family (young children)

Room Type: Oceanview

The ship was wonderful. Very organized.

Pros: SUB Diving in Nassau

Cons: Wish there were more to do in Half Moon Cay....very disappointing port of call

Recommends Carnival Fascination? Yes!

Ship Quality
Decor was beautiful. Have cruised on Carnival Dream before and this ship was equal in quality, layout, cleanliness and accessibilty.
Food and Dining
Great diversity in food choices.
Cabin / Stateroom
First time staying in an oceanview room. (Had balcony on previous cruise). Would definitely stay in oceanview on future cruise. We were only in room to shower and sleep.
Service and Staff
Above and beyond to help and assist in every way.
Half Moon Cay, Bahamas (Private Island)
Waste of time....unless you want to lay out of the beach....BUT what a beach! Beautiful white sand and gorgeous crystal clear water. But there was ABSOLUTELY NOTHING in the port that would make me want to visit again....magnets and mosquitos.
Nassau, Bahamas
SUB Diving was a MUST DO!!!!!! You don't even get your hair wet!!!! But keep in mind it's a 40 minute drive from the port so schedule other excursions around this time frame BUT it's well worth it even if you don't do anything else. Book through ORBITZ and get a $$$ discount, too!
Don't Miss: SUB diving at Stuart's Cove... but keep in mind it's about a 40 minute drive from the port.
