This was the first time we took our kids on a cruise (ages 6 and 8) and we all had a great time. Embarkation and debarkation were a breeze.  The Fascination is an older ship but it is very well maintained. Our kids loved the water park. The food in the buffet area was very good but we felt that Carnival had scaled way back in the variety of foods offered. This was our 7th Carnival cruise and there was a big difference from our previous cruises with them. We have cruised with other cruiselines who put out a lot more selection in their buffets. Also, there were a few evenings where there was only 1 buffet line open and the line was backed up almost to the pool area. Other than this, everything was great.

Go to the water park when in port. You will have the place to yourself!
