Hi. I've been on the Fascination 4 times in the last 5 years. Most recently, Dec '07. (Miami - Nassau - Miami). While the ship is one of the older ones, it's in very good condition. Well maintained, clean and still large enough for a weekend getaway. The one time I spent the extra $ for a balcony on this ship was a total waste... the balcony rooms are obstructed by the life boats, so the views are quite limited. Other than that, we had a great time.
Hope you have a great trip.
