A great cruise

Sail Date: December 01, 2007

Reviewed: 9 years ago

Traveled As: Family (older children)

Room Type: Inside

Since the Fascenation is not one of the bigger ships, you tend to feel the engine vibrations every so often. At around $375 per person (including port fees, tips and excursion) the value for this cruise is hard to beat.

Pros: Great food, nice room, excellent service

Cons: Smoking in the disco, Too windy topside by miniture golf

Recommends Carnival Fascination? Yes!

Cabin / Stateroom
Room was clean and bigger than I expected.
The shows were OK, the comedian could have been better.
Ship Quality
The ship was very clean. Layout was good, easy to find your way around.
Food and Dining
Food was excellent, service was excellent. The buffets were excellent.
The coffee by the buffets was much better than the coffe in the formal dining rooms. I would recommend eating breakfast & lunch at the buffets and diner in the main dining room.
Service and Staff
Staff was courtious, helpfull and the staff in the main dining room went above & beyond.
Key West, Florida
Nothing to write home about. The tour train guide that brought us to town was very entertaining.
Calica, Mexico
We visited the Mian Ruins of Tulum. I thought it was a little pricey. We met a group that managed to see the ruins and also visit the beach for about half the price (need a group of at least 5 people to get discounted rate) from local taxi company at the pier.
