Interesting experience: Carnival Fascination Cruise Review by sourwy
Overall Member Rating
Destination: Eastern Caribbean
The ship itself is quite clean but clearly showing it's age. The decor in most public areas including the dining rooms is very tacky and artless. Other Carnival ships are much more tasteful. Cabins are clean and comfortable. I never once saw our room steward but the room was always perfect. The in - cabin safes are a plus.
The dining rooms are cramped. It appears that 12 diners are placed at tables with More room for ten. Tables are very close together. Dining room service was excellent and very cordial. Food was average. The big aggravation is you cannot dine without a photographer in your face - in fact that's the case almost all the time on board.
Room service was better than expected with very prompt service.
Entertainment varied from good to average. One comic was really funny, having appeared on the Comedy Channel, the other was not so funny - he suffers fromm Cerebral Palsy and most of his jokes were self deprecating and eventually tiring. The dancers need more practice time. The vocalists are talented. A juggler performed one night - he lacked perfection but made up for it with his terrific humor. The entertainment low point was a break dancing duo.
Carnival Fascination is not completly handicapped accessible. There are areas that are inaccessible by wheelchair. Less
