Carnival Fascination

Sail date: June 26, 2016

Ship: Carnival Fascination

Cabin type: Balcony

Cabin number: E103

Review summary

The ship is very old, and the staff were incredibly rude.  The food that was served at the buffet and dining room can be described as high school cafeteria food.  Worst food ever.  The ports were a lot of fun, so  I would suggest visiting those ports just on another ship.

very small, most ships with rooms that have balconies have a sofa bed. This room barely fit the queen size bed
