Ship was well-run and well-maintained. Very clean. Staff was always smiling and willing to help if they thought that you looked lost or confused. Nice experience, for sure.

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
Waitress at table 304 in Imagination dining room was outstanding.

Didn't participate in much of the activity, but enjoyed watching the videos of the activities that we didn't get to. Casino was good, and the show with cruisers as entertainers was wonderful. Missed the other professional dancing/singing shows.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Best staff on a ship in many sailings.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
My sister cruised with me and she can't walk long distances, as she uses oxygen. We use a wheelchair to move about the ship, so medium size is better than megaship for that reason.

Cabin / Stateroom

Had partially handicapped room to accommodate oxygen and wheelchair. Nice to have the extra room and to be located centrally on the ship for easy access to all amenities.

Went to Atlantis by cab to look around. Found it to be too much time in that port. Doubt that too many cruisers stayed out until 9:30 pm, so think that this stop should either get there earlier in the day, or just leave earlier in the evening.

Had been to Key West two weeks previously and had in mind the things that we missed then and wanted to see. Were able to do that, so found that stop to be perfect!

Pros: Staff was very accommodating and friendly. Not so much with some other ships in the last few years.

Cons: One game bingo for $20! Felt like it was a rip-off. The game wasn't even a cover all! Just simple line or 6-pack. Not good. They did have one session of 7 games.

Recommends Carnival Fascination? Yes!
