Well below expectations

Sail Date: April 14, 2008

Reviewed: 8 years ago

Traveled As: Family w/older children

Room Type: Oceanview

Total disappointment in this cruise, The Fascination staff was not very helpful and few spoke english well enough to assist when asked. The food was below average, all eating areas other than the dining rooms felt like school cafeteria's. Given the choice of a beach vacation or another cruise, I'd take the beach. I have had strong endorsements from numerous times to try a cruise, this year we decided it was time. Big mistake!

Pros: Singing waiters

Cons: Service

Recommends Carnival Fascination? No.

Key West, Florida
Key West is nice enough for a destination vacation, this cruise did not allow enough time at this port.
Cozumel, Mexico
Steer clear of flea markets and shops, the locals are rude, especially to teenage girls.
