very good cruise

Sail Date: July 01, 2013

Reviewed: 3 years ago

Traveled As: Family (young children)

Room Type: Inside

our party of 5 adults and 2 kids had a great time. it was a very relaxing vacation. the bahamas was ok, little stirrup cay was over crowded and the water was not as clear as we had expected. the pool was not near large enough to accomodate so many people on board, but my kids loved the water slide area. drink prices are too high, would have loved the opportunity to prepay for alcohol. but overall we had a great time and will definitely cruise again

Pros: water slides

Cons: not enough live bands/pool too small

Recommends Carnival Fascination? Yes!

Ship Quality
the ship was good and clean, there was a slight dank smell in some of the common areas. one of our rooms was near the laundry room and there was a lot of commotion and loud talking from the crew that disturbed us at night.
Food and Dining
food was good. really enjoyed the special foods that they added for people to try, i.e. alligator, frog legs, escargot.
Cabin / Stateroom
room was average, not enough plugs
Service and Staff
the ships staff was very friendly.
the band, deja vu, was the best entertainment/cover band but they were placed in a walkway/hallway and weren't given enough performance time. they played for the live band karaoke, but tht seemed like a waste of talent to me. they need a better venue and more time to play.
Children's Programs
my kids, 10 and 6, loved the water slides and camp carnival
