7 Night Southern Caribbean (San Juan Roundtrip)
Sail Date: June 19, 2016
Ship: Carnival Fascination
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Cabin Number: E61
Traveled As: Couple

My favorite part of the cruise was the entertainment,  Felipe the host  was so funny. I didn't care much for the group singers for 2 nights - one night would be enough and another game show would have been fun. Overall the entertainment on the ship was sufficient, comedy club - excellent, dance class (cha cha) very good.  I was really pleased with the service on board especially at the dining in the back ( forgot the resultant name ) I was at table 377 and Phillips and Miram was exceptional. I loved the entertainment in the dining as well. I also loved that our rooms was cleaned twice per day, that was a nice addition. Overall I loved the cruise, food was good, entertainment was good everything was good.


What I wasn't thrilled about was how expensive the photos were, I think Carnival can do a much better good to make the photos more affordable. One photo $22 that's crazy although I bought 4, but just sell the photos cheaper or put all the photos on a flash drive/CD and cut out printing cost and just offer a package deal to get all your photos. Think about it the more photos we have the more we post on social media and the more we promote carnival cruise. You will still make money.

Service and Staff

Service was excellent, esp in my dining area table 377 with Phillips from St Vincent and Miram (spelling might be wrong) from Serbia

Ship Quality

3 out of 5
the ship is a older ship that could use a face lift but that would mean increased prices. Because I like the price of the cruise and do not want an increase I would say just do over the seats in the main section the material is a bit outdated. But the ship was very clean just not modern

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
the cabin was fine - wish we were provided with air fresheners to spray - the bathroom are to the walkway and sometimes a bit smelly it someone was doing a number 2

Ship Tip

Carry sea sickness pills , don't walk with alcohol bc it will be discarded like mine - I had no idea.
