My husband and I decided to go on this Carnival Cruise for our honeymoon.  With both of us being first-time cruisers, we were not sure what to expect, but Carnival definitely impressed us.  Every staff member from the dining staff, to the entertainers, to housekeeping, worked to make this an incredible vacation for us.  We were completely taken care of, and we did not have to lift a finger all week! We also enjoyed our ports of call (Nassau and Freeport), as we had booked two excursions that allowed us to experience the islands.  Overall I would absolutely recommend a Carnival cruise.  We are already looking forward to our next one!

Service and Staff
We had excellent service and staff members who took wonderful care of us. They were efficient, kind, and funny!

Destinations and Excursions
Ship Quality
Our only comment was that we were on the Carnival Fascination which had only one swimming pool, and did not seem to be large enough for the many guests onboard.
Embarkation and Disembarkation
Cabin / Stateroom
Although we had an interior room, we loved our cabin! It was always clean, with fresh towels, and there was plenty of space for two adults.
Jacksonville, Florida
Nassau, Bahamas
Freeport, Grand Bahama Island
If you can, definitely book an excursion for Freeport, as there is not as much to do and transportation is not as accessible.


Purchase a (waterproof) camera! We loved capturing photos of our time onboard, as well as our excursions. When we went swimming with the dolphins and kayaking, we were able to take our camera in the water with us, giving us amazing photos and video!

Also, bring an air freshener for your cabin!
