It was our first time on a cruise ship, so initally it was really cool and amazing. A little dated but ok overall

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
Buffet food a little less than average but dinner experience was really good.


3 out of 5
Lots of activities on ship for all ages, some really neat,and some ok.Not bad, though

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Extremely plesent and helpful all the way around. Staff really goes out of the way to provide services to cruisers.

Ship Quality

1 out of 5
There was only one pool on the whole ship so if you didn't get up early enough, there was no way to get a lounge chair or have a table to eat lunch/breakfast.Space was way too small especially on our last day (at sea day). We just went back to our room until dinner

Cabin / Stateroom

3 out of 5
Nice and comfortable enough rooms for their size.
5 out of 5
We took an excursion and traveled to a different island.It was the best experience of our whole trip. I would highly recommend finding an activity to do while on the island.
Don't Miss: Power Boat Adventures is a MUST DO

Pros: Hospitality

Cons: Too many people in small areas

Recommends Carnival Fascination? No.
