Good cruise

Sail Date: January 08, 2007

Reviewed: 6 years ago

Traveled As: Family (older children)

Room Type: Suite

We've taken both Royal Caribbean and Carnival. Carnival has very nice suites with balconies. They've recently updated the rooms and we found them to be spacious and very nicely decorated in a contemporary style. Unfortunately, we found the food and dining room service to be a step down from Royal Caribbean. Service was very slow (understaffed) , noisey, and food just ok. If you decide to cruise Carnival, book a balcony suite but keep expectations lower in the dining room.

Pros: the balcony

Cons: the food

Recommends Carnival Fascination? Yes!
