We've been on this cruise so many times that we know the ship by heart! The staff is friendly. The ship is clean snd the food is good. The size of this ship is perfect, for me the larger ships cause too much chaos and the Fascination is calm and composed! This cruise was my 12th o. This ship and I have others scheduled in August and November. I would recommend this ship to everyone! I am disappointed that they are eliminating smoking on balconies and think this will really cause a lot of people to stop cruising on Carnival. It doesn't matter to me I always get an I inside cabin but friends I cruise with will no longer go on cruises with us! I suggest Carnival make specific cabins available for smokers and eliminate this drama ! 

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
Really enjoy the Dining Room meals, the Cocanut Grove is tasteless and the desserts all taste the same

Onboard Activities

3 out of 5
There's not that much to do on board which is fine with me. The art auctions are too long and way too expensive


3 out of 5
Shows never change, best one is the Guest talent show , the Hasbro game show is the worst

Children's Programs

Our favorite port, embarkation is easy and quick and the peoe are very friendly, way better that Charleston or Port C

Nassau, Bahamas Did not visit port

I've been to Nassau so many times, but this last time I had to go in a wheel chair andwe found a hair braider named Love to help us by pushing the chair and she was great, We were happy to make her day with a nice tip because she made our day . We will look for Love in August!!
