Fascination from San Juan

Sail Date: October 30, 2016

Reviewed: 7 months ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Oceanview

This older ship is in good condition.   The crew was excellent and the facilities were well-maintained.   The MDR meals and staff were very good and I enjoyed the entertainment.


The food alternatives outside the MDR were lacking as the lines were always long when the venues were open.   The opening times for the buffets and Mongolian Wok were too limited.


Overall, the price was right and the ship was good enough.   The itinerary on this 7-night cruise from SJ was very good with 5 ports over 6 days.
