I know they are the same 'class" of ship, but for those who have sailed both, what can I expect to see/experience that will be different? There seem to be some layout differences and the decor seems to be toned down from the purple on Sensation. Anything else?
Sailed Sensation 1 time back when it was new and doing 7 day cruises from Miami.
Sailed Fascination 2 times when it was new and doing 7 dayers from San Juan.
Ships are identical in size, layout, etc.
The Fascination has a Hollywood themed decor with Life-sized maniquins of famous stars, such as John Wayne, Edward G. Robinson, even has ( or diid have ) an Elvis maniquin. Library has Scarlet O'Hara and Bret. Has a piano set up with Bogey and Lauren Bacall. If I remember correctly the disco on the Fasc. was called " Diamonds are Forever " disco.
Unless there has been drastic changes made, the decor is the only difference in the ships.
I know that some of the Fantasy class ships have begun a makeover regarding some of the deck space on the outside ( Golf, etc. ) but they are all the same cookie cutter thing as far as size, layout, etc.

I think I would freak out seeing all of those mannequins standing/sitting/lying around! But it kinda would be hilarious watching all the drunks trying to have a conversation with one!

My wife and I were sitting close by the Elvis maniquin one night and this lady and her hubby ( or maybe boyfriend ) came by--she didn't see us and went over to Elvis and started doing something naughty-- then saw us and got this embarrassed look and hurried away. that was funny.
There also used to be M. Monroe and James Dean at one of the bars. I don't know if all these maniquins are still there or not . They may have been torn up and removed by now.
Silly me-- I meant to say Rhett instead of Bret in my first post.
Marilyn is still on the fascination, I believe she is by the bar Diamonds are Forever
