Excellent Value, Fabulous Time
We went to Nassau, Bahamas and Half Moon Cay. I really liked that we had a day to browse around Nassau this time, we docked at 8:00 a.m. and didn't leave until 5:30. There were plenty of activities available to make good use of the day, and we enjoyed ourselves. Half Moon Cay has a very lovely large beach with plenty of bar space, beach chairs, chairside wait staff, showering facilities, restrooms, and was a nice break from being on ship. The lunch provided on shore was very good, barbequed chicken, hamburgers, cheese burgers, any fixings you could imagine and a myriad of cold side dishes and salads. Again, there were plenty of activities to indulge in and comments from the other passengers were mostly very positive.
The Fascination is NOT a new ship, but it is a comfortable ship and laid out well. After cruising on the Freedom, we found this a bit more comfortable, actually, and for a short cruise, it was a perfect balance between pampering and comforting. We would do this quick cruise on this ship again. Next time I think we will stay midships, but move up a floor and try the balcony room on 5th. And choose the later dining time so that we don't feel quite as rushed getting ready for dinner. Less
Cabin review: 6B Ocean View
Adequate space but not spacious, large closet space. The beds were not spectacular but were comfortable enough. Fairly quiet for the location on the ship. Remember, this is not a new ship, but one that has been refreshed in the last few years. It is a smaller ship, but it is very comfortable and a good value for the money.Read All Ocean View (6B) Reviews >>
