Verified Review
7 Night Southern Caribbean (San Juan Roundtrip)
Sail Date: July 17, 2016
Ship: Carnival Fascination
Cabin Type: Suite
Cabin Number: U79
Traveled As: Family (older children)
Reviewed: 1 year ago

We have been on over 12 cruises with multiple carriers.  This cruise was average. The ship is older and configured differently from other ships.  The initial safety review was not effective and left people not knowing what they should in the event of an emergency.  We did not particularly like the dining seating as well.  The ports were great and kept us moving quite a bit.  Some of the entertainment was good but some was bad.  The common area food was initially was good but it became the same (not much change) as the week progressed.   All in all we considered this average or even a little below average.  We like Carnival but will probably avoid this ship in the future.
