Carnival Fascination Overview

Experience Hollywood on the high seas on the Fascination, Carnival's tribute to the golden age of film-making. Rub shoulders with new friends at the Beverly Hills Bar. Dance all night at Diamonds Are Forever, or have a quiet evening at Tara. Rich tapestries and stone elephants create an exotic ambience in the Passage to India Lounge. Feast on everything from lobster to Duck a L'orange at the splashy Coconut Grove Bar and Grill or the elegant Imagination Dining Room. Life-sized figures of Hollywood stars of bygone days like Marilyn, Bette, and Clark create once-in-a-lifetime photo opportunities. Escape on a 3- or 4-night cruise to the Bahamas or exotic Mexico and historic Key West.

Best ports make for an unforgettable week with the family by southernfried

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Family (older children)

We knew ahead of time from having done this cruise on this ship before that the Fascination isn't the most appealing ship in the Carnival fleet, with few of the amenities that we've enjoyed on other ships. But it was well worth the sacrifice of onboard entertainment and convenience because of the incredible ports on the itinerary. Starting with San Juan, these are by far the best collection of ports offered by Carnival and they didn't disappoint. What made this cruise all the more special is that we brought our two adult children with us in celebration of my wife's 60th birthday. from the ports, to the excursions (we did three), to the food, to the hospitality of the crew to all the photos we have as memories, these seven days were an unforgettable experience we will always cherish.

We love the stops but would take a different boat next time by esdssugar

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Large Group

The crew was rude at times not enough room in pool or hot tub's. Room didn't have a mini fridge which sucked cause your in room drink would be hot. Stewart's for rooms were nice.

Purchase a (waterproof) camera! We loved capturing photos of our time onboard, as well as our excursions. When we went swimming with the dolphins and kayaking, we were able to take our camera in the water with us, giving us amazing photos and video! Also, bring an air freshener for your cabin!

There is a small Adult Only section called Serenity just off the back of the Lido deck. If you exit the doors to the left of the Pizza Bar just go down the steps. Its for 21 and older so go enjoy the quiet and two hot tubs for adults only. Unlike the other "sardine" hot tubs full of kids!!
