2nd time was a charm!

Sail Date: May 01, 2008

Reviewed: 9 years ago

Traveled As: Singles/Friends

Room Type: Oceanview

This was my second cruise, and it was a great experience! The first cruise experience I had was awful (on a different carrier), but Carnival was great! The entire staff was warm and friendly. The ship was extemely clean and well-kept. The entertainment was spectacular! I would recommend to anyone who is looking for quiet/intimate formal dining to NOT sign up for the late seating, as I heard from experienced cruisers that this seating time catered to the more raucous crowd. Thank you Carnival for a wonderful time!

Pros: Super friendly staff!

Cons: Lines at buffet

Recommends Carnival Fascination? Yes!

Food and Dining
Ambiance of the formal dining room was much less intimate than I expected. It was a little loud.
Ship Quality
At all times, there were staff cleaning rooms, walls, public areas. The cleanliness of the ship was impressive.
Cabin / Stateroom
Plenty of room in our oceanview cabin.
Service and Staff
Everyone was very friendly!
The shows were fantastic! Sets and costumes were elaborate.
