We are cuisers (this is our 4th), and we enjoyed this one very much! The weather was terrific and although it was a short cruise (only three nights) we made the most of it. The food was very good in both the buffet restaurant and the dining room. The shows were entertaining..we had two productions that were lively and festive. The juggler/comedian was very good, and we wouldn't have minded seeing more like that. Our children did not participate in the Camp Carnival but they loved the food and the water slide. The pool area is the one down side. The pool needs to be twice the size to accommodate the passengers. It was always very crowded. There were four of us in our outside room, and although it was tight, we all had storage for our clothing. The ship was refurbished last year, and it does look nice for an "older" ship. I am certain that this will not be our last cruise, as we certainly missed being on the Fascination the minute we disembarked.

Pros: The overall experience

Cons: Pool area too crowded

The Atlantis and it's aquarium is a must see. We rented mopeds with our children and drove over to Paradise Island. We also did plenty of shopping and walking.
Don't Miss: Atlantis
