I am THIIIIIIIIIIIIS close to booking my entire family on the Fascination in several cabins for September,,,I love the itinerary,,,would love it to be 7 days which it is not, but if I'm paying for the group of us, she's a great bargain!!! DH and I will do a 7 day alone together
However, my grandson will be 8, and I KNOW he'd love the Waterworks,,,,and I heard Fascination doesn't have one,,,,
Anyone know when or if they are getting it??? It's not a deal changer,,,,I'd just like to know,,,I STILL love that it goes to the private Island,,,
and do they at least have the spiral slide into the pool if not the waterworks??? I think that would make him happy

Yes fascination has the one spiral slide, and it goes directly into the pool. No water works yet and there in no known public schedule when the water works will be added. Only thing I could find was that all Fanstasy class ships are suppose to have water works and serenity(adult only area) by the end of 2009.
Carnival Inspiration-November-2009(anniversary cruise)
We sailed the Fascination in October 2008 and, as others have stated, it still has that spiral slide. However, the slide is supervised at the top by Camp Carnival employees and children under 48 inches tall aren't allowed to use the slide. Some of the Camp Carnival employees were enforcing the rule more strictly than others, and my son (who is under 48 inches tall) rode the slide several dozen times throughout the cruise.
Your grandson is in for a rude surprise when he splashes into the pool at the bottom of the slide and gets a nose full of salt water! LOL
You'll love Half Moon Cay and so will your grandson. The beach there is truly awesome.
When we were booking Fascination for Jan 2009, it is the wrong week for our kids' 2-day school week, it was the wrong week for our spring break 2009, and I think it is wrong for Jan 2010. I think the first time it potentially works for us is spring break 2010. Why don't they do more HMC and less Nassau? I mean they own the island, so why not use it more? I have seen Nassau more times I care to and actually slept through it when we went there on Glory.
Location: Jax, FL the port is about 10 minutes away from my house!!!
DH said to me yesterday that in 2010 he wants to leave from here again (Jax Port) and go to HMC... man we loved it there!! The sign they have there is sooooooooo true..... I wish I could stay there forever!!!!
