The only thing fascinating about the Fascination is that it actually floats. My wife and I went on this ship for our honeymoon and booked an oceanview room. When we got to our stateroom and pulled back the curtain what did we find a metal panel. So I went to the desk and told them they messed up and the rude agent told me "Oh well the ship is full, you will just have to deal with it" I finally got them to give us some shore excursions to make up for giving us an inside stateroom when we had requested an oceanview. We had a hurricane come up while we were at sea, We tossed around for several hours on our "FUN DAY AT SEA" so bad the dancers had to cancel the show because they could not stay on the stage. I noticed several other cruise ships way off on the horizon and asked our cabin steward why they were so far away, and his reply to me was Carnival will ride straight through a storm if it is a cat 1 or 2. So we got back to Miami and we had booked a shore excursion through the everglades before catching our flight home, It was pouring rain and Carnival would not refund the money, they drug us across the everglades on an airboat just to catch our flight looking like drowned rats. So if you are looking at this ship stop being cheap and go Disney or Royal Caribbean. Do any other cruise besides Carnival. That is unless you are single and have an alcohol problem. If that is the case you will love this cruise line

Rude don't care about guest satisifaction, When i complained about the cruise in Cozumel she said you can just get off the ship and fly back to Miami if you dont like it

OLD rust is the only thing holding this ship together

very small, we asked for a king bed and they just pushed two twins together and put a sheet over it. So when you lay in bed there is a huge canyon in the middle to fall in during the night

Pros: getting off the ship

Cons: I hated everything about this trip

Recommends Carnival Fascination? No.
