Carnival Fascination - ABOUT THIS SHIP

When you step aboard Carnival Fascination, you’re not only about to start a fun cruise, you’re about to enter a different world. This ship lets your inner star come out as you wonder at all the Hollywood-themed décor around you.

As you explore onboard spaces, you may feel as if you wandered onto a film set, like the ornate Passage to India lounge or the swanky Sensation Dining Room. Meet and have a drink with your fellow beautiful people at Beverly Hills Bar, or grab a bite with tropical flair at Coconut Grove Bar and Grill. And star treatment is within anyone’s grasp at Spa Carnival.

You’ll also find all the fun perks you look for in a Carnival cruise — resort-style pool, Serenity Adult Only Retreat, mini-golf course… oh, and Carnival WaterWorks.

Sensation and Imagination Dining Rooms (main dining rooms)
Fascination's two main dining rooms are the most traditional of any of the ship’s facilities. They serve at least one chicken, fish, or beef entrée each night, along with a selection of lighter fare—including vegetarian options. While there is a formal night on most cruises, it’s formal in name only. The wait staff typically lightens the atmosphere by performing a number of humorous song and dance routines.

Coconut Grove Bar & Grill
Located on the Lido Deck, Coconut Grove turns out buffets for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. A favorite amongst most passengers, this spot is renowned for its fresh fruit, a carving station featuring roast ham or beef, and a vast selection of deserts. A round-the-clock ice cream station is frequented by passengers into the wee hours of the morning.

Pizzeria & sandwich counter
Located inside the Coconut Grove, this 24-hour pizza kitchen is one of the ship’s most popular late-night destinations. The sandwich counter serves up N.Y.-style reubens, subs, and more.

Lido Cafe
American cuisine at its best, including cheeseburgers, hot dogs, and fries. Mexican cuisine is served one night per cruise; roasted potato sopas with goat cheese salsa are to die for.

Sushi bar
Fascination's small sushi bar serves complimentary fresh rolls from 5 PM to 8:30 PM nightly.

Café on the Way
Sweet desserts, fresh pastries, coffee drinks, and milk shakes make this one of the Promenade Deck’s best people-watching locations.

Room Service:
Complimentary room service is available 24 hours a day, and features simple sandwiches, fruits, salads, and desserts.

ENTERTAINMENT AND PUBLIC AREAS

Fascination’s ample public spaces and entertainment venues are anchored by the five-story Grand Atrium, which features the newly-added Atrium Bar. Hollywood Boulevard—the main walking thoroughfare on the Promenade Deck—is the best point of access to the ship’s nine bars and lounges, its ever-popular casino, and its two show lounges. Three pools and six whirlpools can be found on the upper decks, where expanses of deck chairs and cozy bars abound.

  • Passage to India Club: Live Motown and funk music

Shows:

The centerpiece of Fascination's nonstop entertainment schedule is the spacious Palace Theater, which offers two Vegas-style shows nightly and a smattering of other performers, including magicians, comedians, and adventurous passengers who dare to participate in the Legends guest-participant show.

Shore Excursions:

Carnival offers a wide range of shore excursions, including walking tours, kayak trips, trolley rides, lobster bakes, pub crawls, and wine tasting. Book onboard via cabin TVs or at the shore excursion desk. No last-minute discounts are offered, but late-comers can often join a tour on the dock or swap a pre-booked trip for another one in the same port. A 25 percent fee is levied on any cancellations, and no refunds are offered on tours cancelled within 24 hours of port arrival.
