Review summary

We have been on over 20 cruises. Cruising out of San Juan was so easy. Getting on and off the ship was a breeze. The ports were amazing, the weather was good, and we found fun things to do at each location. The Carnival Fasciation was a smaller ship, but the service was excellent, the comedy & shows were top notch, and the ship was in great shape. My husband and I will definitely look for smaller ships to sail on in the future. And.....we finally stayed in a grand suite - all I have to say is it was "SWEET"!
