Carnival Fascination Cruise Review to Caribbean - Western
Sail Date: January 15, 2007
Ship: Carnival Fascination
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 11 years ago
Review SummaryNice clean boat with plenty of friendly staff from all over the world.
The accents were at times, very difficult to understand.
We were hoping for more of a party on board but the crowd was easily 45 years old and older, and was more conservative than we expected for a "Carnival Cruise".
Food and Dining
Lots of staff at your beck and call at all times.
The second you appeared to need something, there was someone there.
Actually, much better than we expected.

Ports of Call
Don't Miss: We simply walked around and shopped. Don't bother with going all the way to Margaritaville, It's just a resteraunt.
Don't Miss: Tulum for incredible beauty and pyramids, and Playa del Carmen for shopping.
Pros: The weather was a great change from the cold winter in Canada. Key West was lots of fun as was Playa del Carmen and Miami. Five days on board was enough time for both of us. The food was good and the entertainment was excellent.
Cons: It took us forever to figure out the layout of the ship. For a "Carnival" cruise (supposedly a party boat), we found there to be mostly older passengers on board. The personality of the cruise director was a bit much to take.
