Passengers make the fun

Sail Date: January 16, 2012

Reviewed: 5 years ago

Traveled As: Singles/Friends

Room Type: Inside

Fascination was good, staff was a C+, as some were a bit laid back. Cabin steward was on top of it. Not very creative on activities. Seemed the passengers had to generate the FUN. Bean bag toss, scavenger hunt, karaoke and trivia. Food choices were average, and quality of selections were generally good.

Pros: Ports

Cons: Entertainment was lacking; had to be generated by the passengers by and large

Recommends Carnival Fascination? No.

Service and Staff
A few were enthusiastic and friendly, others were indifferent and did not possess much energy. The cruise director did his best to generate enthusiasm.
In the dining areas, the staff was quick to clear plates and keep things clean.
Only three "shows" during the five nights voyage. They were good productions. Expected Hollywood-production-style shows each night. Activities lacked creativity, and played over and over. For sea days, there could have been more choices beyond trivia of some sort with a bean bag toss, putting contest or art auction thrown in.
Ship Quality
Food and Dining
Choices were below expectations.
Cabin / Stateroom
Nice interior room, and the cabin steward was very nice. Made a new towel animal to greet me each evening.
