Wonderful Family Vacation

Sail Date: March 01, 2010

Traveled As: Family w/young children

Room Type: Oceanview

Great Family Vacation. I would recommend this ship to everyone with children. We had a great time. I would like to thank the Captain Antonino Allegretti, He was most gracious to wait on our family in Key West Fla. With that said I would recommend you to book your excursions early as they were all booked. If you do book outside of the ship it may save you a few dollars but good luck and make sure your on time or you may come back to an empty dock. The Late dining did us well. It gave us enough time to do the activities we wanted and then settle down for dinner as a family and not feel rushed, The staff at Imagination is great, Dorina, is the best! She connected with the kids and really went the extra mile to make it a great dinning experience. The seating arrangements were great, we had the opportunity to sit with a family who had children in the same age groups. Great people! The staff at kid carnival are great, Our 10 year old was weary of being "baby sat" but after there she did not want to leave. The water park at Atlantis is wonderful if you have children I would highly recommend that trip GREAT!

Pros: The Staff

Cons: Liked it all

Recommends Carnival Fascination? Yes!

I would have loved to had some kid/family activities by the pool that would have been lots of fun as the kids seem to really come out of they're shells.
Ship Quality
Food and Dining
Excellent service and food !! Thanks Dorina!
Cabin / Stateroom
Service and Staff
Children's Programs
Great program for the 6 and 10 year old children but the teenage boys found the club 02 a little boring but they are sports geared maybe having some sort of sports section would help the boy, They really loved hanging out with new friends.
