7 Night Southern Caribbean (San Juan Roundtrip)
Sail Date: October 02, 2016
Ship: Carnival Fascination
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Cabin Number: U141
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 1 year ago

It's very hard for me to admit but Fascination needs to be retired. The STAFF is the ONLY thing I liked about this cruise. They are among the most HARD WORKING AND BEST in their industry!!! They totally SAVED the cruise for me. Other than that, the ship is "OK" and the ports are GREAT but I will say THANKS TO THE HARD WORKING CREW the ship is kept very clean. Other than that the food was probably the worst I have ever had on any ship/cruise, I'm thinking it's due to so many people just filling TRAYS with food and NOT eating it so the ship needs to put out VERY CHEAP food. The fellow passengers on this ship are really another big problem pushy and obnoxious!!!
