Carnival Fascination

7 Night Southern Caribbean (San Juan Roundtrip)

Sail date: February 18, 2018

Ship: Carnival Fascination

Cabin type: Inside

Cabin number: E239

Traveled as: Family (older children)

Review summary

That old ship needs to be upgraded more or retired. Port San Juan is a popular port and the Fascination is too small to be down there! Carnival needs to think more about customer service or they will not be number one much longer.

Even the first cruise after dry dock and boarding late, the embarkation was good.

The Guy's burger joint and the Blus Iguana were wonderful but the rest was not good.

Onboard Activities

1 out of 5
No balls for ping pong after first day. No big screen TV on lido, no basketball.

Casino Royale

Such HORRIBLE smoke odor that I could not stand to be in there! There needs to be a better ventillation system installed.

The entertainers were not good! Dancers and comedians awful. I would rather be on Lido watching movies on a big screen TV
