7 Night Southern Caribbean (San Juan Roundtrip)
Sail Date: July 17, 2016
Ship: Carnival Fascination
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Cabin Number: U149
Traveled As: Singles/Friends
Reviewed: 1 year ago

I enjoyed the Fascination itself, but the crew was a different story..after the third day of having to make my own bed and go searching for clean towels I was sure it was a training crew.  The dining options were there but trying to get to them without having to stand in a line for 25 minutes or longer was a task.  The entertainment was fine.  I found that I looked forward to the ship docking into each new port so I could eat and be treated nicely.  This was my 4th cruise and I'm slated to go again in October with my sisters but after the staffing issues on the Fascination I'm going to think really hard before I decide if I want to go.

I had to clean and make my own bed for the most part.

Ship Tip

Check to see if it's a crew in training.
