  3. Carnival Fascination
This was the 3rd time we have taken this cruise out of San Juan and the other 2 times was on the VALOR--which we loved...the Fascination was such a let down and much too small of a ship. Our inside cabin was unfortunately directly below the Galley...the noise level ALL hours of the night was horrific and RUINED our cruise experience on this ship. When we complained after the first night we were told to call the desk and they would send someone up to the galley to quiet down...well that lasted on 10 - 15 minutes. We were then offered ear plugs for the noise level - which did help...on the 3rd day we were offered another cabin but did NOT want to pack everything up only to unpack it in another cabin. I must say Carnival did their best to try and accommodate..but in reality these cabins should not even be available to be booked or be booked a greatly reduced rates letting guest know of this issue. Did not like the way the Casino is set up on both sides of the main isle. The small bands that were playing were in hidden areas. Our days on the island were fun and exciting. We are platinum members and will NEVER book a small ship again

Never stay in a room BELOW THE GALLEY!!

Cabin Review

Interior
Cabin 4E E154
Our cabin UNFORTUNATELY was directly under the Galley...so ALL night long - well 24 hours a day the noise level was unbearable. We are Platinum cruisers and we did voice our displeasure with the noise level and were offered ear plugs and an apology. We were also offered another cabin on day 3 and did not want to PACK everything back up and move to another cabin..lesson learned...never have a room below the galley
