October 2016 - Carnival Fascination to Caribbean - Southern
This was unique in that the Cruise left port at 10:00 pm on a Sunday. It allowed us to fly into Puerto Rico on Friday afternoon and spent the weekend site seeing. We rented a car and drove El Junque and climbed La Mina Falls which was incredible. We went to the Fort in Old San Juan, had cold beers and great food all before getting on the ship. The destinations were amazing and enjoyed all of them. The staff was super friendly. My porter, Al, always had ice in our room when we got back in from excursions. He made our bed even if I took an nap before dinner. Excellent service! Wait staff was fun and friendly. Casino staff for the most part were friendly. Christopher could have cared less that we were there. Kept looking over his shoulder waiting on his break relief. Whatever, not spoiling my fun. Embarkation and disembarkation was smooth and timely. Comedians were hysterical!!! Shows were good! Made great memories and met some super nice people!
My only con: this ship must be an older one. It was a little musty in places and noticed really bad smells on Lido deck. Tiles broken and/or missing in Lido buffet area. Overall needs some TLC.
