Cabin: Ocean View

My Second cruise, Wife's Fourth on Carnival Fascination. Compared to other ships I view while docked in San Juan PR and other islands we stopped at this ship was the smallest, but I wouldn't have known any better because it was only my second cruise. We chose the Southern Caribbean 6 Island 7 day cruise starting out in San Juan PR because for the price and everyday stops at 6 different islands. We had to fly in from Atlanta, GA on the 8th March 2020 for embarkation and sail to ST Thomas that night arriving in ST Thomas the next morning.

Our First day 9 March 2020 our excursion Parasailing was canceled because of bad weather. We left the ship and walked in to the strip shopping plaza in ST Thomas where I made a dumb mistake of stopping at the first souvenir store and payed way too much for a two caps and a shirt, then went to another store and the same items were as much as 50% off, very stupid of me never buy from the first store without doing some comparison shopping.

The Second day 10 March 2020 we stopped at ST Marrten and left the ship for our second excursion The Big 3, Flying Dutchman Zip Line, Canopy Chair Ride to the top of the mountain and the Tube slide down the mountain. Definitely not worth the price that they charge and the Tube slide was horrible and dangerous down the mountain. The Flying Dutchman Zip line too time consuming because you had to go through three practice runs on smaller zip lines before you were allowed the 2000Ft drop from the top of the mountain down to the bottom.

Cabin Review

Ocean View

The cabin room was adequate for two adults. the bedding was very comfortable. the bathroom was okay but no exhaust fan so the mirror fogged up and the shower curtain was very useless stopping water from flying outside the shower, so the floor was soaking wet after a shower very poor drainage for water to drain.

Our cleaning crew of two guys were excellent and always kept our room clean with clean bath towels. They were great give them a bonus please.
