As we have a 2-year-old, embarkation was quick, as we were pointed to the front of the line.We cruised with Princess Cruises recently and so we can make comparisons with them.Plus points with Carnival-Food was better-Sodas and ice cream is free-Child care (Camp Carnival) was far better - Pleasant (not rowdy) party atmosphere when some of the live bands playing.- Waterslide on poolPlus points for Princess-Better swimming pools-Formal night more formal. A tad more upmarket-Better shows-Slightly better cabinOverall the service on Fascination was good and we enjoyed having most of our meals "al fresco" at the Lido Coconut Restaurant.Key West is worth a visit for good holiday gear, Cozemel for the party snorkeling trip and the main bar in town packed with cruisers.Next cruise will be either Carnival or Royal Caribbean.
