First time on Fascination but 3rd Carnival Cruise...just an ok experience. Did not receive any information regarding Elegant night and the men and boys could not get into dinner with dress shorts...many others we met had the same issue. No beach towels in room 2nd night for early departure excursion next morning and room steward said he would bring the next morning but we needed that night and he was very put-out to bring them to us but we did receive an hour later. Went to brunch on at-sea day and host was not accommodating to our request for us to sit at a table for 6 as we were waiting a few minutes for the rest of our group. Put us in the very corner right against another group when the restaurant was not even half full. Asked to move but was not happy about it...wait staff was very unfriendly and food came out uncooked. Balmier island was a big disappointment and would never return.
Jacksonville port needs fans and better organization...will never use this port again. Disappointing cruise except the sun and circle C for my son...Jane was incredible with the kids

Pros: Great tan

Cons: Jacksonville port\, incomplete itinerary from BJs\, poor service
