Great first cruise, will def be back!!

Sail Date: May 01, 2008

Reviewed: 9 years ago

Traveled As: Singles/Friends

Room Type: Inside

From the beginning the staff was very helpful and the ship was beautiful. The food was good. Breakfast was good, with many choices. Lunch was ok, there was always fresh burgers, pizza, sushi. Nice selection of food. Dinner was superb. You could order as many selections as you like. We had prime rib and lobster at Captains dinner that was delicious. Get the chocolate melting cake for dessert! It is out of this world!! Our waiter Anthony was fabulous. It was hard saying goodbye to such great service. The pools were too small for such a large amount of people and the slide was closed a good amount of the time. The shows were fabulous-two different comedians, karaoke, and dancers/singers. Only other comment in general-we missed our original booking due to missing a flight and Carnival was very difficult in booking us on another cruise. We basically had to jump through hoops, many frustrations, but in the end we were pleased and will book with Carnival again. DON'T MISS YOUR FLIGHT!!

Pros: friendly staff

Cons: embarkation-leaving ship was difficult at best

Recommends Carnival Fascination? Yes!

Service and Staff
The staff was excellent. The salon is overpriced. Hold out for the second or third day and get a 50% discount.
Ship Quality
Had problem getting tampons in the bathrooms. The laundry rooms were out of service a good part of the time. Toilet clogged 2 times, but they were quick to fix it. Decor and cleanliness were great.
Food and Dining
Great. Dining room was excellent. Pay attention to your seating time and dining room and you won't have a problem. We met some great people that dined with us each nite. They and our waiter brought us roses for Mother's Day!
Cabin / Stateroom
No complaints here except that the toilet clogged twice. The staff made sure to keep it clean.
They had a great itinerary each day, however I did'nt notice it in my room unitl the 2nd day on the ship. Shows were above what I expected.
