Ship: Carnival Fascination
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Traveled As: Family (young children)

Review SummaryThis is an old ship for sure. There is one very tiny pool for the entire ship. If you have four passengers be prepared for a very used broken down rollaway bed for your money. No hair dryers are provided and the cabins are usually small. The ship tendered people off to go onshore but had to be moved due to bad positioning. The lines to get off the ship were horrible and the areas around the stairwells and elevators stayed jammed. Everything seemed extremely disorganized to board as it was done in zones. Wedding parties always go before you. The two times I went to guest services there were others complaining about the embarkation process as well as lost luggage even two days into the cruise. All tips are automatically placed on your account without prior publication of this to anyone so be prepared for another $10 per person per day. Evelopes are also placed in your room to tip the maitre'd and others. One afternoon and evening the only pool area was closed down for "washing" which also dramtically deterred foot traffic. Don't count on reading materials in the library as is less than lame. There is no organization to the 25-30 books that are there. Two childrens games were available with missing pieces.
