Review summary

Dissatisfied with my seating arraignments at dinner.  My bed in my room was 2 twin beds pushed together to make king size.  Uncomfortable sleeping with husband.  Was under the impression that food would be plentiful 24 hours.  On 2 occasions I went to get some late food and it was closed.

Sam He works in the dining hall. He was so pleasant and professional. We asked to sit in his area at the evening dinners.If rated, I would give him a 10.

Ship tip

Yes, I would cruise this ship again. But I want to cruise a different ship than Fasination. Carnival has more ships I have been looking at on the internet. This was my first cruise, now I know what to expect. As a matter a fact, we are in the process of booking another cruise.

Ports of call

Jacksonville, Florida

Little disappointed in not having enough time to tour Atlantus and time to explore, swim, and eat.
