5 Night Bahamas (Jacksonville Roundtrip)
Sail Date: November 30, 2015
Ship: Carnival Fascination
Cabin Type: Inside
Cabin Number: M298
Traveled As: Large Group
Reviewed: 1 year ago

Four of us, one in a wheelchair, shared a handicapped cabin.  Plenty of room and great service.  Food quality and service was wonderful.  The only problem was there were no onshore tours available for a person in a wheelchair.  It seems Carnival could put economic pressure on the ports of call to put wheelchair lifts in some busses for city tours and boats for sea-life viewing.  The tour staff seemed unconcerned and just said no tours for wheelchairs, the Bahamas have no ADA compliance laws.

Plenty of room for friend who sleeps in his wheelchair away from home. The other 3 of us were fine. Great cabin service.

Ship Tip

The two ladies did the dolphin swim and it was the highlight of our trip. Well worth the cost.

Great dolphin swim. Great shopping. Would have enjoyed a city bus tour but none that could accommodate the wheelchair.

A disappointment. Wanted to snorkel but none available to rent because a brief rain kept the one rental man home. Beach access was dangerous. Shopping not nearly as nice as Nassau.
