The Fascination is a really good ship to travel for  short cruises. I liked the port , it was close to home. The serenity deck for adults is very relaxing, and I spent many hours there. Food in the dinning room is good; service is better, dessert even better. We had an interior room with four persons residing, and found it to be very comfortable with plenty of room. I booked especially to attend the carnival live concert, but was told it had sold out before the cruise and not to attempt to be put on the wait list :( very disappointed. So if your going to see one of the concerts, my advise is .. buy your ticket online. 

For a nice get away .. This cruise is affordable and fun. Probably the highlight of the cruise was half Moon cay, the cruise lines private island; the beach and the water well make your day! Please enjoy your vacation!Big Smile

Came for the concert unaware that the tickets had been pre sold way before the cruise!
Nassau, Bahamas
Half Moon Cay, Bahamas (Private Island)
Beautiful!!! I would go on a cruise just to this Island


You don't need your own water .. water is good. Make sure you have money on an international credit card. Small bills for casino and off the ship. Bring a lot of pool side clothing. Your own blow dryer. And last but not least .. a positive attitude your going to be around a lot of people.
