Disappointed in Carnival

Sail Date: March 26, 2012

Reviewed: 4 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Oceanview

The ship's entertainers were good, but there were only two shows in five nights. The food selections were not great, however we did have lobster one night which was exceptional, rather a nice surprise. The rooms are extremely shows rooms with a couch, but you have to book a suite category to get those so oceanview rooms should be shown as they really are. We did ask to have an arm chair brought in and our cabin steward graciously did that for us. There is one small pool for everyone and there is a small adult sunbathing area with two whirlpools but no pool. It was difficult to find a spot there. It was our first cruise on Carnival and we probably would not cruise with them again. We have found other ships to be a better value.

Pros: The service people

Cons: Ship is too small for numbers of people

Recommends Carnival Fascination? No.
