5 Night Bahamas (Jacksonville Roundtrip)
Sail Date: August 25, 2014
Ship: Carnival Fascination
Cabin Type: Balcony
Traveled As: Large Group
Reviewed: 3 years ago

From the time we stepped aboard the ship, the sewer smell was there, permeating the corridors,cabins and some public areas.  The smell was worse in some areas than others.  I don't know what kind of issues caused the smells (like a dirty, airless interstate rest stop restroom) but it certainly tarnished the cruise for us.  The bathroom in our cabin was no exception.  Our cabin steward kept the surfaces clean and freshened, but the smells were never gone; some times really unpleasant.  This ship (Fascination) has a plumbing problem.
