Our First Cruise Ever
Carnival Fascination Cruise Review to Caribbean - Eastern
Ship: Carnival Fascination
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 3 years ago
Review SummaryWhile the cruise wasn't perfect, it was enjoyable and we will go again! We wish that we had done a bit more research of Nassau's attractions before boarding. While we planned an outing for ourselves in Key West (not one of the ship's excursions), we didn't plan one for Nassau, and we regretted not doing so. In retrospect we should have taxied out to Atlantis and gone to the beach.
Food and Dining
I loved that I could wake at noon and still have breakfast. I loved the "didja" (as in did you ever try...) appetizer option in the dining room each night. Since you can always order a back-up appetizer (or three) if you don't like what you're trying, you won't go hungry. I loved the "show" the waiters put on each night. We had a really good sport for a waiter and he made each evening a treat. I do wish that smoking had been prohibited in at least a few places. It seemed like no matter where we ate outside, there was a person smoking nearby.
