Fascination 7/22 Trip

Recommended Posts

Going to do a trip report later this weekend or Monday. Just wanted to say Trip started on a sad note ..But ended in another amazing Carnival trip.


Day 1 -We were 2 hrs. late leaving port as a crew member passed away. RIP them and keeping there family in our prayers.


Short story before I do a trip report. FTTF again was well worth every penny cabin was ready right away and luggage was at cabin before us. We got to port at 10:30 and was 3rd row of seats to be on board after Plats. Had lunch on a empty ship again. Tendering was excellent got to GS desk and was walked to tender fir tender out.


LSC, We think its equal to HMC even thou HMC is cleaned. LSC had a great Aqua area..LOTS of fish all over the beach swimming areas and saw many LARGE sting rays swimming about..Had 2 almost swim into me...CLOSE...:eek: So many Hammocks and near half were empty. Shade, Lots of shade near the Aqua side of island. Was great right side of Aqua park walking out and swimming way far out and water was only 4-5 foot deep and soo many neat fish.


Paul was our cruise director and did a amazing job. Dan on the ent staff and Hugo 2 thumbs up..Sad to see Dan has sailed his last Carnival ship and is moving on to another career ..Had Dan twice and was great.


We had ATD and again great, We had "Napa" she was awesome!!


Chair Hogs..No issues really shocked we always found chairs.. Only time we found chairs harder to find was short time first sea day.


We did self assist and off boat at 8am home by 1 pm.


2nd trip on Fascination and will be a 3rd!!

Can't wait for more! We had Napa the first time we sailed the Fascination in 2012, and she was on the Sensation in 2010.

We are sailing the Fascination again this November and will be sure to ask for her section when we do the YTD. She is wonderful! So Sweet!

Only had sushi 1 night on the main dining menu. The 5pm Happy Hour this trip didn't offer it like our Easter cruise. They had 3 different themes the 3 days from Italian meatballs to Fried Spicy Pork balls another. I missed the Sushi myself. They still had the Mexican Midnight Buffet and Deck Party day 4 and Chocolate lunch Buffet on final day also..They had Chocolate Sushi there thou.

Day 3-Nassau-


Woke up and hit MDR for breakfast with family. Being we done Nassau before we knew we would just spend little time on Port here. Took a walk around town and took a visit to a few spots Library,Town buildings and such. They walked down Bay Ave and did some shopping and collected all the free stuff. We got total 2 necklaces, 2 bracelets, 2 charms and a nappy pack from various jewelers and 1 Beach bag from Delsole from Shopping book we bought at show and booklet at port info center we found. That was not a bad deal and got to spend some time. We also visited straw market as my daughter wanted a Bahamas cross over bag, They asked 25 and we worked 2 different vendors. Even walked away and came back at end and final price was $13..Not bad. We decided to walk back to ship for lunch being its so close and headed to Lido deck. After lunch we headed back to Bay Street and walked over to the Pirates Museum. That was ok..Not a huge amount of stuff but a nice job they done there. Price was $36 for all 4 of us. We left there and headed over to Señor Frog’s and had some Adult and Kids smoothies and had some snacks. That evening we just had dinner and spent some time in the pool after dinner.


LSC and Mexican Buffet tomorrow...
