“Get what you pay for”
Reviewed March 23, 2013

Trip was ok for the money. We didn't pay much for the last minute trip. The food wasn't anything to write home about, and the ship is very much in need of updates. It was easy to get on and off and the ports were ok, we opted to go on our own vs. paying excursion prices. This was very much a red neck cruise that reminded me why I no longer frequent the local wal mart. Won't do Carnival again, would stick to Disney or Royal Carribean. Rooms were small more than two people and its too small. Felt like they crammed 2200 guests on a 1500 person ship. N

“Easy On Easy Off”
Reviewed January 7, 2013

This is a smaller cruise terminal than previous ports we sailed out of and that seemed to play as an advantage. The security line and embarkation process were smooth and painless. Disembarkation was equally efficient once cleared to deboard the ship. Save your money for drinks on board and park up the street for about half the price.

“Fast and Efficient”
Reviewed July 2, 2012

We are previous cruisers, but, this was the first time we left from the JaxPort terminal in Jacksonville, Florida. It was much smaller than terminals we have been to in the past, but, very efficient and quick! The staff was friendly and the embarkation lines moved quickly. Debarkation was even quicker. We flew through the lines and were quickly on our way home. One thing I noticed was the porters (not hired by Carnival, but, from a private firm) were very helpful and much nicer and accommodating than at larger terminals.

“Carnival Fascination Cruise from JAXPORT Jacksonville Port, Florida”
Reviewed June 19, 2012

My family just returned from a cruise on the Carnival Fascination out of the JAXPORT in Jacksonville, Florida. This is a small cruise port with only ONE cruiseship that sails from the port (the Fascination). We chose this cruise because it was a reasonable drive (about 13 hours) from Ohio. We parked at the port for $15/day. There are cheaper alternatives - but not more convenient ones. The port isn't much to look at, but its just a doorway to the ship. The staff, however, are very helpful and very efficient and made this a very nice trip. Our return to the port from the Bahamas was what really made this port great. Debarkation was fast and we were through the port and into our car in less than ten minutes....AMAZING!
