A Terrible Cruise

Sail Date: March 28, 2011

Reviewed: 5 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Oceanview

The ship and conditions were just passable. Too many children and teens running wild and unaccompanied. Never saw any crew members try to stop them from running up and down stairs and through passageways. Absolutely no dress standards adhered to in the dining room except for "dress" night. In the casual dining areas, there were people in bathing suits who were barefoot without any type of coverup -- pretty disgusting while you're eating. They should have to eat poolside when dressed this way.

Pros: Closet Space

Cons: Noise Level, Too Crowded

Recommends Carnival Fascination? No.

Ship Quality
Very few options and schedules were all over the place. Was hard to plan your days.
Children's Programs
The young people were totally out of control.
Food and Dining
Food was barely edible. Lots of decoration on plates but food wasn't tasty (with exception of some desserts) and caused indigestion to most of our group -- especially the dining room food.
Cabin / Stateroom
Service and Staff
First dining night was a horror -- service was terrible. After speaking to the head guy, the service improved for 3 nights. The last night in the dining room was like the first night.
Nassau, Bahamas
Didn't go much out of the port -- was hot and nasty so we went back to ship. Need some less expensive "day on the beach" options.
Key West, Florida
Tour of the city is interesting.
