nice caribbean cruise

Dec 9th, 2018

Carnival Fascination Cruise is nice but they need to but it needs better accommodation in the meals and to extend the time in the buffet. With the amount of people that had the three small buffet available to the public was not enough. The variety of food was very poor at lunch and dinner. At the dinner our family of 15 people had separate tables online and the service was terrible, they served some first and then others, it was a mess at dinner. This is my third cruise with carnival and I feel very upset with this experience, since I recommended this cruise to my friends who was cruise for the first time.

Great ship! Had an amazing time both times I’ve sailed on the fascination, she is full of things to do. The only thing that’s was an issue was the overcrowded pools.

Fun Caribbean Family Cruise

Nov 29th, 2018

We just returned from the 7 night Caribbean cruise. Overall, the cruise was fun. We did excursions at St. Thomas (snorkeling with the turtles) and St. Maarten (bike ride), both of which were fantastic. We coordinated tours with locals for St. Lucia and St. Kitts, which worked out great. One of the downsides of St. Lucia is that the best attractions are quite far from the port. The cruise itself had fantastic daycare. Our child kept asking to go everyday, preferring the daycare to hanging out with the family! The food was okay -- we would have preferred fresher options and better tropical fruit options (e.g. guava, soursop, golden apple, local avocados, coconut, etc.). Most of the fruit was melons. The dinners were also okay. There were very few meals that were really amazing. The cruise decor was dated, but we knew that going in from pictures. The evening entertainment was enjoyable, but not something I would go out of my way to see. There were a good variety of activities, including comedy shows, song/dance shows, and others. There was a fun piano bar, karaoke, and many other options. Overall, we had a great time, but I think I might try another cruise ship for our next outing.
