Carnival Fascination is a great value.

Sail Date: January 2014
Destination: Bahamas
Embarkation: Jacksonville

My wife and I boarded ate due the late arrival of the ship.

After a brief delay going through security because I had a power strip in my carry on bag, we moved quickly through the check in process.

My wife went nuclear when we stepped onto the Lido deck.

The DJ was plaing some REALLY hard rock music which was not appropriate for a family cruise.

Don't get me wrong. I don't want to hear, "Sweet Home Alabama" 712 times either, but the hard rock "Alice Cooper" type music was just plain wrong.

We were in cabin R163 which was actually a quad cabin even though we are only a couple.

We've been on the Fascination many times and the food and service were great.

Special shouts to dining room staff I Ketut, Harvey and Lindon.

The weather was dreary and overcast, but we had a nice cruise.

The ship was very cold throughout though and the cigarette smoke near the casino was overpowering.

CD Paul Stantley is a More class act.

Entertainer Dylan Holton playing in the Atrium is a true rising star.

Crew were constantly cleaning the ship!

I recommend the Carnival Fascination. Less
