We sailed on the Carnival Fascination, this was our 1st cruise. We were very pleased with our entire cruise. From beginning to the end we enjoyed everything. We were treated like royalty, the food was delicious and the shows very entertaining. It amazed us at how the wait staff remember us by name and greeted us each evening as we entered the dining room, really gave us that feeling of being someone special.
Our stateroom was very comfortable and spacious. Our steward was very friendly and took care of any request that we had, he made sure that our room was cleaned daily, and our bed was turned down every evening, What a treat that was.
We are already looking forward to the next one, plans are being made for next year. We can hardly wait to get on another cruise.

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
Food was delicious. The dining room although a very busy place had a nice atmosphere, the staff was very friendly. We chose "our dining time" which was perfect for us, although we did not have an assigned table, when we arrived to the dining room for our evening meal, wait time was very minimal.

We attended both shows of the Punchline Comedy, and enjoyed them very much. Also sat thru a few of the games shows-very entertaining.

Straw Market and local shops were interesting, many different souvenirs to choose from. Local Restaurant, Senor Frog, very friendly staff and food was good.

Pros: Hard to choose, we liked everything.

Cons: Our last day we were at sea and the water was choppy so the ship rocked a bit more than on the other days.
