Fabulous Time on the High Seas!

Sail Date: October 13, 2008

Reviewed: 6 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Inside

The ship is excellent! Everything is in great condition with the feel of a rather new hotel. Cozy areas were kept quiet for relaxation and reading, gathering areas were full of seating and well lit. The theater area (where most events are held) was very well layed out, it didn't feel like stadium seating or like I was in a lecture. There are huge round tables that seat 8 comfortably, all high backed and generously cushioned for long shows! Other seating was comfortable with a table in reach for drinks, snacks or other items. The stage was enormous for a smaller boat! The shows were no less glam and spectacular than on any large ship we've sailed! Rooms were generous in size with plenty of closet and drawer space. Flat panel television was great! We would have liked to have a clock in the room, though.... We never knew if we were early or late for activities!

Pros: Price of cruise, MOST efficient staff on the water!

Cons: Smaller ship, more rocking=more motion sickness!

Recommends Carnival Fascination? Yes!

Key West, Florida
Great place! Been there before many times! Wish we could have stayed longer. We departed at 3pm. Not enough time to enjoy the night life! Got to see the Southern most point in US again, visited Sloppy Joe's bar and Irish Kevin's (my Irish hubby is named Kevin!!) Always visit Mel Fishers! Always try to take the tour!
Don't Miss: Don't miss Sloppy Joe's Bar for the fabulous FOOD!! they have good beer, too! Never leave Key West without a picture of the Southern Most Point in the US!! Mel Fisher and Hemmingway tours rock!
Nassau, Bahamas
We took a glass bottomed boat tour. it was nice... saw quite a bit of nature that we can't see locally! The water was beautiful! At Atlantis, we visited the casino and the water! While the water was a bit rough (hurricaine out there by the Virgin Islands), the sand is perfect and the views are better.
Don't Miss: Atlantis hotel and Casino! The WATERPARK is the best anywhere! The decor is Amazing! Slots pay better than the boat, too!
