Carnival Fascination itinerary map/ports
The CCL Fascination cruise ship is your only choice if you’re looking for a Bahamas cruise leaving from Jacksonville Florida.
Carnival has yet another Fascination-ing (and most unusual) Florida-Bahamas cruise itinerary change on this ship. It’s about the Fascination’s 5 day Bahamas itinerary with Key West FL. From March 11 2013 onwards, Key West as call port has been systematically replaced with the Royal Caribbean’s private island in The Bahamas.
The new port of call was an “exclusively special” (until now) call port for RCCL cruise ships only. Its name – the Little Stirrup Cay island (best known as Coco Cay/CocoCay). This makes the “Coco” Island the newest and one of the most unique Carnival cruise ports of call. Now you have the perfect opportunity to compare the RCI’s “most fun” island activities with the Carnival’s Half Moon Cays – while sailing on a Carnival ship!
- Jacksonville, Florida.
List of destinations, countries and ports of call:
- The fascination ship will sail exclusively to Bahamas, visiting Nassau, Grand Bahama Island (Freeport), and the best-fun-cruise Caribbean private island(s) – the Carnival Lines’ Half Moon Cay (aka “Little San Salvador Island” and the Royal Caribbean International’s Coco Cay/Little Stirrup Cay island (a RCCL’s private island resort, located 55ml/89km north of Nassau). The new East Caribbean 7-day itinerary adds to the Bahamas the Grand Turk Island (in the Turks and Caicos).
The Fascination’s Carnival cruise out of Jacksonville FL to Bahamas is a year-round “fun-ship business” deal, but some of the itineraries may skip a few months in the year.
