Traveled As: Large Group

Room Type: Oceanview

Carnival has managed to put most onboard and offshore activities in balance. The ship docked in the best location in both ports leving not to big a walk to nearby shopping.  The room stewards are thoughtful, courteous and very hardworking. The waiters and their helpers are friendly, carefull to get oders quickly and correctly. The medium size of Carnival Fascination is ideal for us seniors who find walking hundreds of yards to get to anywhere a chore instead of a pleasure. The nice plan for the vessel and the recent upgrading shows. I noteed that no matter which waym I looked wherever we were, our view of the decore and layout was beautiful. Nice nice nice. Having the Serenity area without a lot of noise, good working hot tubs, was always enjoyable and our favorite relaxation place. Plus the soft serve Icecream never runs out, is nearby and delicious. If there is a criticism to be made it's the onboard shows, entertainment in general. The Divas show we found too loud, and the music now to our oldfashioned taste. (We walked out) The comics were both Ok but not on par with previous comedy shows on other cruises. Overall, we are happy that we went, and would go again and recomend very favorably to Happyall.
