I booked the Carnival Fascination for my friend and I, so I could go back to St. Lucia for the 3rd time (may be the last time), and to show her what it was all about. I have been on many ships, of different sizes. The Fascination ship was smaller, but for me, it was so much easier to navigate, than a large ship. There were no long lines, and the elevators go by letters, instead of numbers. We were on deck 5, so our letter on the elevator was M, as our room number is M82. The bad part of these letters is that most people, young and old, had a hard time trying to see the correct one to push. I am not nit picky, so I was happy with the layout of the ship, and how it looked. There were several things going on like Love and Marriage show, Quest, Hasbro Game Divas, Motor City (Motown Music which was good). Outside, ice carving, hairy chest contest. Piano bar is good too, and there is no smoking, which is great. We ate in the MDR, and the food for us was good, especially their Portabella mushrooms, and mashed potatoes. I have never had this problem before, but I ordered pork chop, and I could not cut it, but other than that, all the food and deserts were great in the MDR. The lido buffet area, deli, pizza, Guy's Burgers, Blueguana had really good food most of the time. My friend had a bad accident while we were on tour in Barbados, so the rest of the trip sort of went down hill, but we made it!!! I won't go into all the details, but here are a few of the stops, and who we used to take us on tours, and we were happy with all of these. St. Thomas we took a taxi and went to town, and they have some wonderful jewelry without paying taxes, and we both bought some! Barbados we had Carson Taxi and Tours, and I'm sure it would have been good, but unfortunately half way through my friend had a bad accident, and we had to head back for the ship. After this accident, my friend went on the other tours with me, but stayed in the van all the time, as she was not able to move around much. St. Lucia we had Cosol Tours. I won't go into the details, but they are wonderful, and you can read everything they do on the tours, and it is worth every dollar! St. Kitts we had planned on going to the beach but after my friends accident we decided to just take a Taxi. We had Jimmy's Taxi sightseeing tours T-438, and it was a wonderful tour and I learned so much about St. Kitts. St. Maarten we had Bernard's Tours, and what a wonderful tour it was. We learned about the French and Dutch side, and see so much beauty of St. Maarten. Read Less

It was not my choice for this sailing, but I did have a great time. As I work in hospitality (guesthouse manager), I did notice little things that needed attention. I am in the habit of looking at the little details, like there was a loose screw on the bathroom door, and when you shut the door, the screw would pop out and fall to the floor, trimming loose around the desk inside the cabin. But overall, the ship was fantastic! Do wish that the buffet had longer hours, and there were not may dining options open late. The onboard entertainment could have been better, but again, overall was great. The crew were fantastic and attentive! The main public areas were clean, but once you got into the cabin areas, you start to notice little thinks, like the carpeting could have used a good cleaning, and some areas actually smelled of cigarette smoke, and on our sailing, just down the hall from us, you could smell sewer in the hallway. We did notify our cabin steward and did see some crew working in the area to try and fix the problem. Read Less

service was amazing. I want to compliment Nestor, our server for dinner. he made it entertaining and was overall a very cheerful person and made my cruise. the food was amazing and the first time I was full every single night. and trust me, I eat a lot of food. loved the different variations of food they had to eat throughout the cruise especially guy's burger shack. i loved that they had water slides on the ship so you had something to do on the sea day. cabin was always spotless and i loved the towel animals they made especially the heart on the last day of the cruise. i loved club o2 and all the activities they had especially the ps4s. the ship was a lot larger than i expected it to be. so first impressions, amazing. overall, i would definitely sail with them again and i would definitely recommend this to someone else.
