Default Re: Ports

Grand Caymen- Western Caribbean is a tender port. Both Western and Eastern offer different flavors of entertainment and fun. Shore excursions that are set up with the Cruiseline have a designated time to leave, place to meet, schedule to keep and place and time that the tour folks will deliver you back to the ship. I also suggest you attend all of the informational meetings that are scheduled on board. The times and places are listed on the shipboard news, "Carnival Capers". What ship or ports are you interested in? You are in the right place to get your answers. Your fellow cruise mates are very knowledgeable. Sue Sue

Does anyone know if the Carnival Fascination to the Bahamas uses tenders or ports?

If you are scheduled to visit Nassau, you will dock at the King George Warf in downtown Nassau. Taxis, water taxis & buses will be readily available.

Hune, the Fascination uses the docks in the Bahamas. Whenever they go to the 'Private Islands' they tender.
Maine, the Eastern is also known as the "shoppers cruise" as you will visit San Juan and the Virgin Islands and probably St Martin. These areas are better known as places to shop rather than physical activities. The Western is more for those that wish to do water sports type activities in that they go to Mexico, Grand Caymans and Jamacia or Central America where your have more physical activities and excursions. The Caymans and Belize you will have to tender as they have no docks for cruise ships. The Southern is for those that wish to have a very port intensive cruise and witness differant cultures. Tours are expalined by the shipboard shore excursions staff and the Cruise Director and there is also a written explaination of the tours. You sign up, they charge your Sail & Sign card and they tell you where and when to meet before the tour. If we can answer any more questions, just ask!
