Ship: Carnival Fascination
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 7 years ago

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.

Food and Dining

1 out of 5
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.

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.

Service and Staff

3 out of 5
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.

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.

Tour of the city is interesting.

Pros: Closet Space

Cons: Noise Level, Too Crowded

Recommends Carnival Fascination? No.
