5 Night Bahamas (Jacksonville Roundtrip)
Sail Date: January 03, 2015
Ship: Carnival Fascination
Cabin Type: Balcony
Cabin Number: U219
Traveled As: Family (young children)
Reviewed: 3 years ago

The bedrooms were way too small, and dirty.  Everything on the ship seemed dirty and dated.  Also, I think it is ridiculous that they charge for soda!  Their private island was shade provided, unless you wanted to pay for it, again ridiculous!  On Disney's private island umbrellas are free and on their ship, soda is free...and their ships are spotlessly clean.  I will NEVER take another Carnival cruise again.  Oh, and my husband got a stomach virus on board!

Don't know how to deal with a crying child, so if your child cries, they immediately call you to come get him/her.

They don't know how to clean, apparently.

Favorite thing was the Blue Lagoon Private Beach Excursion, but it left an hour later than we were supposed to, so that wasn't cool.
