7 Night Southern Caribbean (San Juan Roundtrip)
Sail Date: June 26, 2016
Ship: Carnival Fascination
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Cabin Number: E171
Traveled As: Family (older children)
Reviewed: 1 year ago

Pros: Great itinerary. Towel Art was entertaining. Breakfast was the best meal. 


Cons: Fascination is too small. I felt the motion of the ship. The food wasn't that good. We stood in lines to get food. Strawberry ice cream was only offered one day. The Oceanview window was dirty. Also, bunk beds are NOT for adults.

It's not their best ship.

Cabin / Stateroom

1 out of 5
Wanted a balcony but since this was a smaller ship, there weren't any available when I booked in December. This stateroom was too small for three people (two adults and a child). I couldn't sleep under the bunk bed. It felt lIke a coffin so I had to angle bed which took up the little bit of walking space we had. All in all, it was great family time. We made memories. But I prefer the Valor. More pools and better food.

Ship Tip

Avoid sailing on Fascination if you have cruised before.
