Ship Facts: Carnival Fascination Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Carnival Fascination Deck Plans
The good and the bad
Our flight was cancelled to fly down to Jacksonville because we are from NY, so we wound up driving to FL. The hotel we stayed at the night before was the Hyatt which was a very nice hotel that we booked through

Embarktion was very quick, we were on the ship in unde an hour of arriving at it.

Food- The breakfast on the ship was one of the worst things on the ship. The eggs were disgusting, the sausage and bacon were sticky and gross, the omelette bar was time consuming and not worth the wait. The pizza, deli, and dining room were excellent. the lunch and dinner buffets were much better then breakfast.

Entertainment- Our family loved the trivia, it was very often and we won 3 ships on sticks! Bingo was fun but 20 dollars per card! and it was often only one game! but the last day someone won $1000. There were ping-pong tournaments, dance parties, and the shows were fantastic. The arcade was nohing special but I won a digital camera! the casino was small and crowded.

Service- All the staff were excellent. Our room attendent Manohor was always excited to see us and was excellent. My family loved the towel animals and chocolates on or pillow.

Not many things were included- coffee shop, candy, some activities, soda, drinks, arcade, photos were all not included. Although some of the pictures came out very good.

Our cruise stopped at Key West and Nassau. We went snorkeling in Key West, My sister got a jelly fish sting, and the rest of my family didn't like it. Nassau, we went to Atlantis and the water park was unbelievable but the place was huge!

Other then some obnoxious adults and kids, the big crowd of people did not bother me to much. We did not go to camp carnival, circle c, or club O2. And there were some time on the ship when we had nothing to do and just had to stand around.

We might try another crusise line next time but this was a good first cruise.
