We will be on that ship the end of June, I would love to see the capers! What did you do in Cozumel, and how would you suggest I divide my time? (we are booked for the dolphin swim with our 3 kids) will we be able to visit PB and mimi golf too?

 

Thanks alot! Can't wait for your review, is the laundry done yet?!

Our group of 12 is heading out July 19th. I can't wait to hear what you have to say. There aren't usually many mentions about this ship. It sometimes feels like the Fascination is Carnivals "lost ship". Please hurry! Glad you had fun!

Well we too took the fascination on may 17 and we got home friday nite. I will say this was the best time we had. my husband and I went as our son and his 2 friends were 18 just graduated. Well I thought that the food was great in all areas to eat, 1 formal nite and we could still eat in the main dining room bread lunch dinner in nice kaki shorts and nice button down shirt, they also had the best crepes and pizza. The shows were great and the games were funny, cozumel was ok some very high places. we loved the keys it was so nice.the trip was just too short. our main dining room waiters were prateep from thailand and Raul from phillipines they were great, not to mention the rooms and the towel animals. the clubs were all great and thelido deck was great also. we are already planning another next year. You will enjoy and have the best time. enjoy and let me know.

hey alli since we were on the same ship at the same time did u happen to catch the show with the men dancing like chippendale it was hilarous especially when the guy with the superman boxers had to say what kind of work he did.

Love4dolfins,

We missed the dancing men!

We did see something a bit strange - twice we saw officers entertaining single female passengers-much to the women's delight. One evening we asked a bartender about it, she nodded toward the couple on the dance floor and stated that next trip it would be a new one! Job benefit I guess.

My husband and I leave on the Fascination 5/28 for our 15 year wedding anniversary celebration. I'm so glad you liked the ship. How was your room? We're in an ocean view on the Empress deck. Done several other cruise lines but never Carnival. How were the pools?

Our room was one deck down from Empress, on the Upper deck ( try and figure that one). We found our outside cabin quite large (even the shower was roomy). Bring a blow dryer ( first ship we've been on that didn't have one in the bathroom.

We preferred the pool located mid-ship, however, this area got very busy when the ship was under way.

For a quiet area you can head to the aft pool. I found this area to be a bit bleak.
