Fascination a little better, but not by much

Sail Date: January 2011
Destination: Bahamas
Embarkation: Jacksonville


Arrived at the cruise port at 11:30 and went through VIP entrance. Regular entrance was long and slow. We got up to the check in desk quickly, waited for 10 minutes to get our pic taken, then on the ship. From drop off to Lido deck about 40 minutes.


Nothing to write home about. Still needs some help. The chocolate buffet is a joke...a very BAD joke!


Overall pretty good, but some waiters were tired and very slow to bring juice in the A.M.


Do NOT get cabin R172. Creeking sound. Called front desk and they sent someone down, but bad creeking during the cruise.

Jen the Cruise Director:

Lots of energy, but not very feminine. Rough around the edges. Again, if cruise directors would watch HAL's Jason Venner in action, he is the best on the high seas.


Again, same old. Why don't the cruise lines realize that frequent cruisers (like myself) get More tired of the same old shows for 5 years straight. Come on!


Lots of smoke.


Nassau same old and Half Moon Cay was ok.


An okay cruise for the price, especially for those of us in Northeast Florida, but don't expect much.
