Experience Hollywood on the high seas on the Fascination, Carnival's tribute to the golden age of filmmaking. Rub shoulders with new friends at the Beverly Hills Bar. Dance all night at Diamonds Are Forever, or have a quiet evening at Tara. Rich tapestries and stone elephants create an exotic ambience in the Passage to India Lounge. Feast on everything from lobster to duck a L'orange at the splashy Coconut Grove Bar and Grill or the elegant Imagination Dining Room. Life-sized figures of Hollywood stars of bygone days like Marilyn, Bette, and Clark create once-in-a-lifetime photo opportunities.

Disclaimers about ship ratings: A ship's Health Rating is based on vessel inspection scores published by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). If a ship did not receive a CDC score within 24 months prior to the calculation of its Overall Rating, its Health Rating appears as N/A; in such a case, the ship's Overall Rating is calculated using the average Health Rating of all CDC-rated ships within the cruise line.
