From the moment we stepped on board we were given great attention by all of the staff. The shows were great. We enjoyed the time we were able to spend on deck at the pool and just sunning. Didn't do too much of that just because the weather was just too cool for us. We are looking forward to sailing on the Fascination again with our children.

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
We tried the evening buffet the first night but decided that we liked the dining room for our evening meal. The breakfast buffet was great though. I do have to say that in my opinion the coffee in the dining room was the best though.

Loved the shows!!!!! My husband said that he liked the comedy of Paul better than the comedian that was on board. I am still trying to figure out how the dancers kept their balance the last night when the ship was rocking more than usual

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
If you wanted something or had a question any of the staff were willing to help and if it was something they couldn't do they would guide you to someone who could

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
The cleaning staff kept the ship as spotless as you possibly could with that many people in one place like that.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
We were on Riviera Deck so we did feel some motion from the water but nothing we couldn't adjust too. We were actually surprised by the size of the room. From things we had read online we expected it to be much smaller. It was the size of a small hotel room. We didn't want to stay in the room during the day any way so that was fine with us. There was ample closet space. We didn't even use it all

Pros: we really enjoyed the way we were treated. We felt totally spoiled

Cons: The evening buffet was not our favorite thing. The dessert bar was good. We just enjoyed having our evening meal in the dining room

Recommends Carnival Fascination? Yes!
