I have been on 3 previous Carnival Cruises. This past week we took a cruise on the Fascination for Feb 9. It's was my 4th and my brother and sister in laws 1st. Tuesday the 10th my boyfriend started having diarrhea. Wednesday 11th my sister in law was throwing up and diarrhea. She was unable to get off ship in bahamas. While on a tour in the Bahamas another lady on our floor said she was sick the day before. Needless to say on Thursday my brother was sick and I ended up sick on Friday. Don't know what we contacted but I have now read other review from January where others had gotten sick on the Fascination. Only had 1 buffet line at night in the coconut grove dining room so there was always a long line. The first day they were selling alcohol cards the 1st and 2nd day for 49.95. We went to buy one the second day and they told us a whole different story than the day before. There were 3 shows 2 were the same and the only reason we had 3 was because they were switching out the performers. Water tasted horrible like it had something in it. Only water from bar downstairs tasted like water. I will not go back on the Fascination again.
