overcommericalization and herding

Sail Date: January 01, 2012

Reviewed: 5 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

the ship itself was decent, but the herding of 2500 at dinner time was a bit much. did not care for the feeling of being cattle when it came time to eat dinner. Perhaps there is no better way, but this along with the overcommericialization/marketing exampled above in the photo shoot portrayed as a captain's night were my most dissatisfied aspects of the cruise.

Pros: food

Cons: too much marketing/selling(e.g. the supposed captains night was just a sales pitch for the photographer booths)

Recommends Carnival Fascination? Yes!

Cabin / Stateroom
Of course these complaints with the stateroom were out of the control of Carnival,e.g. as a nonsmoker, easily smelled smoke the whole time from the neighbor on one side of the state room, then on the other side there was a kid who cried quite often.
