The Fascination is one of Carnival's \"Fun Ships\" - the smallest in their fleet. You would never know. The layout and view from the dock are impressive.

Ship Experiences

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
Sensations restaurant food was superb. Buffet food tended to be bland and hour of operation weren't clearly identified. Pizza station was a hit although understaffed.


5 out of 5
Palace Theater entertainers are top notch with high energy shows and powerful singing voices. The comedians were terrific.

Service and Staff

3 out of 5
Staff were hit or miss. EXCELLENT: Steward\, Behind the Fun tour guide and housekeeping. ROOM FOR IMPROVEMENT: Significant language barriers with food service staff. AWFUL: Duty Free Liquor Store (all three guys) and Fun Finds Shopping Show presenter (Jennifer?)

Ship Quality

3 out of 5
Rating would be Excellent if smoking areas were more contained. Going to Puttin' on the Ritz required walking through the smoky casino area.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Our Ocean View room was very clean and well maintained. Sized right to be comfortable while still economical. The Steward was awesome!

Pros: Cleanliness of rooms\, Entertainers & Behind the Fun Tour

Cons: High Pressure (borderline deceptive) Sales\, Smoking Areas too Broad & Food Preparation Without Gloves

Recommends Carnival Fascination? No.
