Why Choose Carnival Fascination?
  • Pro: Offers inexpensive seven-night sailings
  • Con: Departs from San Juan and Barbados, requiring flights; balconies scarce
  • Bottom Line: Older ship that's great for simple warm-weather getaways

The ship offers programming for children in five age groups: "Camp Carnival" for kids ages 2 - 5, 6 - 8 and 9 - 11; "Circle C" for 12- to 14-year-olds; and "Club O2" for older teens.

Young and older youths alike enjoy a host of PlayStation2 and Nintendo Wii games, sports, music, plus art activities and parties.

Family fun awaits at the nine-hole miniature golf course or at the three swimming pools, including a children's wading pool and a main pool offering a 115-foot-long water slide. There's even a turn-down service for kids consisting of freshly baked chocolate chip cookies alongside Carnival's renowned towel animals created nightly by cabin stewards.
