I have sailed the fascination twice and ejoyed the ship,and the 2 ports as well.

Half Moon Cay is a slice of Paradies,..gorgeous water and sand..buffet lunch and a relaxing day...water sports are there too.

Nassau,has the Atlantis, where you can do the Aquarium, and, the Dig..then do some shopping

Trip, with her book & tea!

Default Carnival cruise to the Caribbean

The Triumph now goes on the Western Caribbean route, which includes Cayman, Cozumel, Roatan, Costa Maya and Belize. Best cruise ever - snorkle in Cozumel or Roatan, Cayman activities are varied and excellent, Costa Maya is for Maya ruins, and Belize - lots of tours but zipline and cave tubing are the top combo tours. Major Tom in Belize can recommend a full cruise itinerary for you as he did for us - he's at info@cave-tubing.net and a pretty well established professional bunch, from what we experienced (some of our group did go to a Maya Ruin called Altunha.

Question Half Moon Cay or Cozumel

Half Moon Cay is wonderful -- if you like a day at the beach! That is what it is, a great beach and pretty much nothing else.

Being from California, it is not much of an attraction for us. If you are from Ohio or Minnesota it is probably a slice of Heaven ..

Cozumel is a tourist port par excellance. There are many many touristy things to do there, from beaches to swimming with the dolphins to sitting in a bar, and of course shopping shopping shopping. If a bustling tourist port is your thing, you will like it there.

As always, it depends on what YOU are looking for in a cruise.
