Faster to The Fun

Sail Date: August 07, 2016

Traveled As: Family (older children)

Room Type: Balcony

The food and activities were tremendous.  The drinks were somewhat pricey. Although the cruise was billed as "Bahama", the port side docking time at Nassau was less than that at the Florida Port Canaveral.  The time at Freeport was even shorter.


The Carnival website says canned carbonated beverages are allowed on board. Being only a water drinker, our bottled water were confiscated. 


Overall, the cruise was enjoyable.  On boarding at Baltimore, there was no sign to indicate where "Faster to The Fun" ($59.95) should line up.  Likewise, our suitcases did not make it to our room even though "The Faster to The Fun" promises they be in our room when we were aboard.


The boarding was more orderly - but the disembarkation was very chaotic.

Need better directions when entering port. Seemed attendants at luggage tagging were confused with the FTTF package. (Do you need 3 or 4 attendants there to handle out tags?) We waited for a while to unload our suitcases, as "many" attendants there should be supervised. Attendants at the Port disembarkation area were more organized.
