More musical chairs for short-cruise aficionados: Carnival announced today that, after several weeks of dry dock this spring, its Fascination will replace Ecstasy on the Miami-Bahamas and Miami-Cozumel-Key West routes. Ecstasy will be repositioned to Los Angeles. The 2,052-pax Fascination, built in 1994 and decorated with a Hollywood theme, has been plying the waters of the southern Caribbean on weeklong voyages; its move is effective May 4. Prices begin at $289.
