Default Fascination Water Works???

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

Holly

Was going to say, I don't think they have removed the spiral slide into the pool on any of the Fantasy class ships that haven't gone through the renovation completely.

On the virtual tour page for Fascination:
The Carnival Fascination offers three pools, including one with spiral waterslide.

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.

Default Height Requirement on Fascination Slide

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.

I'm here!! They have the one twisty blue slide....







In Half Moon Cay they have little slides there too. Sorry I didn't go down to that end so I don't have any pics of it.

Don't forget on the Promenade Aft there is a kids pool!! It's 3' something deep

Default I want to go to Half Moon Cay SO much!

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.

Default yea, we love sailing from Jax

It is only about 6-7 hour drive. I could even convince dh to take another cruise IF it was going to HMC. For now, we will just have to "make do" wtih Nassau and Key West on Jan 19, 2009-LOL
