After reading reviews we were worried that this cruise would be a disappointment. We had a great experience. We haven't sailed with Carnival for 7 years and our last two cruises were on Disney ships. The staff aboard the Sunshine were ... Read more

I’ve cruised several times before, but this was my first time on the Fascination. Also my first time on Carnival (previously sailed with NCL and Royal Caribbean.) Work has had me in Jacksonville for a few years now, so I thought I ... Read more

Just off the Carnival Fascination for a quick Bahamas cruise. The weather was fabulous this time of year and the service on board was excellent. The only downside for cruising this time of year was that it overlapped with spring break, ... Read more

They say you get what you pay for, we paid for a great time and got it. My husband and I have cruised twice before, but this was my girls (18 & 20) first time. We needed something inexpensive and able to fit into our spring break ... Read more

Lets start here. There was 11 of us that booked with Carnival Cruises. They booked us in a hotel and shuttled us to the ship. Well let me tell you about the hotel first. We got there after an 11 hour car ride from Toronto Canada. They ... Read more

After reading a few of the negative reviews I can see that many people who take this cruise are amateur travelers and don't do their homework before taking a trip. I flew into Miami from Chicago and had no trouble with the efficiency of ... Read more

I took my three daughters (Aged 18, 18 and 21) on a 5 day cruise to the Bahamas. The ship was awful. Firstly, do NOT buy the faster to the fun pass. It made no difference at all. We paid extra for that benefit and we were told we ... Read more

We've been on more than 15 cruises, but hadn't been on Carnival in about 20 years. If you have been to Nassau once, that is probably enough to last you a lifetime. It is a dirty city where you have to navigate your way through all of ... Read more

We should have known this cruise was doomed from the start - after trying to sign up for the cheers drink package online 2 days before, the website was saying the drink packages for both of our rooms were already purchased and was not ... Read more

This was our first time since the upgrades. The Red Frog by the pool was our favorite spot- the bartenders were awesome. At night the Red Frog on deck 2 was a great place to hang out – they had a live band everything (one night ... Read more

We embarked on Sunday, February 28 2016 in Baltimore. We arrived at the port at about 1 PM. We waited about 30 minutes before going through security. Then we had a pretty long wait, about 45 minutes or more, to check-in. Lines were very ... Read more

Highlights: Embarkation was smooth and quick. We upgraded to the penthouse and found it to be worth the money. It was roomy, well stocked with towels, and the bed was super comfortable. There is some noise from the Lido deck but we ... Read more

My friends and I were offered an upgrade to the penthouse (PH1) which we definitely loved. The bar area and dining room were nice as well as the huge bedroom. The livingroom sofa pulled out to sleep 2 and a twin was brought in to ... Read more
