Ship: Carnival Fascination
Cabin Type: Inside
Traveled As: Family (older children)

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.

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
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.

Nothing to write home about. The tour train guide that brought us to town was very entertaining.

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.

Pros: Great food, nice room, excellent service

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

Recommends Carnival Fascination? Yes!
