7 Night Southern Caribbean (San Juan Roundtrip)
Sail Date: July 31, 2016
Ship: Carnival Fascination
Cabin Type: Inside
Cabin Number: R103
Traveled As: Family (older children)

We have been on this cruise three or four times and each time is better than the others.  Now we no longer take shore excursions.  We just get off the ship and take a taxi to a nice beach.  This cruise was a good experience.  Getting on the ship was very easy and made even simpler because of our 'gold' VIPF status on Carnival.  We got into our cabins by 2 pm (for a 10 pm departure).  My sister was very sick for the first two days of the cruise and the Cabin Attendant (Putu) and dining room staff went out of their way to make her comfortable and get her to eat. Planning on taking this cruise again next year.

Small but big enough for us both to unpack and be comfortable. For the first time, the air conditioning was really working well and the cabin was really cool....just like we like it.

Ship Tip

I always bring too many clothes for this cruise and not enough bathing suits and cover ups. Make sure to bring enough toiletries like shampoo, conditioner etc. It's not easy to find good brands in the ship's gift shop or in the shops onshore.

We took an extra two days post cruise to see San Juan. Great shopping here!

Took the water taxi right by the ship over to Great Bay Beach for shopping, beach time and the Hard Rock Café.
