Hi from the Fun Hub on the Carnival Fascination!
My friend Dwight Cenac and I have been going on our “Men’s Cruise” on the Carnival Fascination for the last two years in a row over the long Labor Day weekend with his two grandsons.
While I miss my wife Marty and Dwight misses his wife Connie, it’s nice to get away!
The Carnival Fascination is only 15 minutes away from where we both live in Jacksonville, so it’s very convenient to catch the ship.
We arrrived at JaxPort at 10:30 a.m. and we were directed to a parking lot to wait to be dropped off until the passengers of the previous cruise were able to disembark.
We waited about 20 minutes and boom, we were good to go.
I will have to say it was VERY difficult finding a porter to take our luggage. Dwight handed a passing porter $10 and he took our luggage.
Once inside, many of the pier staff recognized me from my many previous cruises and we breezed through security and check-in.
We waited for 15 minutes in the Priority boarding area and then we made our way to the ship!
Many of the crew that I met from my January and February Carnival Fascination cruises have left the ship, however their are a few on the ship.
It’s always great to see old friends!
The weather is perfect and it continues to look great during the duration of the 5 day Bahamas cruise which includes Half Moon Cay.
Stay tuned for more from the Carnival Fascination!
