All dining was great! Morning, Lunch, Dinner, or buffet the food is service was much better than expected.


1 out of 5
There were not enough activities on the ship, to the point that most people moved from event to event as only one at a time took place. The shows were just ok, but the dancers were incredibly RUDE. They came to the very small nightclub, I guess for guest relations, but only complained to each other about guest dancing with them.

Children's Programs

3 out of 5
Though I signed my daughter up, she didn't like the activities and found other things to do.

Service and Staff

3 out of 5
The staff was very friendly even when they were pushing alcohol sales. Housekeeping did an amazing job. They NEVER interferred with us.

Ship Quality

3 out of 5
Some of the common areas needed updating, but the dining areas were pleasant. Not enough swimming area; only 1 pool.

Cabin / Stateroom

3 out of 5
The room was good. It was small for four people, but we were rarely there.

Pros: Half Moon Cay Was Beautiful

Cons: Lack of Entertainment on Ship

Recommends Carnival Fascination? Yes!
