Dress Code

What Should I Pack?
The first thing to remember is that you're on vacation and you are onboard Carnival Cruises’ ‘Fun Ships’ to have a good time. Secondly, remember to travel light. Keeping these two pieces of advice in mind are very important for packing.

Casual attire and resort wear is typically appropriate attire onboard and in-port. Shorts, slacks, sundresses, blouses, sandals, etc., are appropriate for women, and clothing for men is just as casual. Travelers might also want to consider bringing along a sweater or jacket for cool evenings and inexpensive rain gear in case of a sudden shower. While restaurants typically have casual dress code, there are also instances where you may visit a specialty restaurant or attend a special Captain’s Cocktail Party and Gala Farewell Dinner that requires business casual or formal attire. For days in port where you will be participating in various shore excursions, you should dress accordingly to the dress codes of the sites you are visiting, as well as bring a pair of sneakers for strenuous walking.

Formal Wear: Men: suit and tie, sport coat, tie and slacks; Women: evening dresses, cocktail dresses; pantsuits.

Casual Resort Wear: Men: sport shorts, slacks; Women: dresses, skirts, shorts, Capri pants.

*Please Note: Shorts, t-shirts, tank tops, and bathing attire are not permitted in the Dining Room during dinner.

Fitness / Recreation

Stay in shape while at sea with the state-of-the-art exercise equipment, jogging track, and aerobics classes, offered to all guests onboard Carnival Fascination.


Experience the catchy music, exotic dancing, and exciting costumes that make these spectacular stage shows nothing less than the best. If you’re for something flashy, musical, or just plain entertaining, you’re sure to find it during one of Carnival Fascination’s shows!

Bars & Nightclubs
Toast to the friends you came with and the friends you made while onboard Carnival Fascination. ‘Bar hop’ around the ship to experience all of the different kinds of lively bars and lounges and eventually end your evening dancing the night away at the nightclub.

Live Entertainment
From comedians to musicians, there is never a lack of live entertainment onboard Carnival Fascination. Partake in karaoke night and become a star yourself!


Need to relax? Let the stress sail away as you pamper yourself with Carnival Fascination’s spa. Soothe sore muscles with a trip to the steam room or sauna and then, indulge in a full-body massage for ultimate relaxation. Also, Carnival Fascination’s salon features a variety of beauty treatments for both men and women, including facials, loofah treatments, manicures, pedicures, and hairstyling to ensure that you look your best throughout your entire vacation onboard Carnival Fascination.


Sophisticated Dining
Get onboard with quality food at Carnival Fascination’s Main Dining Room. Choose from an array of dishes, including aged New York steaks, fresh seafood, low-fat Spa Carnival entrees, and superb wines that will truly be a treat for your taste buds.

Casual Dining
For a more relaxed atmosphere, sample the eclectic menu and enjoy the scenery at the buffet-style restaurant. Indulge in a juicy cheeseburger, hot off the grill, or choose from international cuisine ranging from Mexican to Indian.

Satisfy Every Appetite
Even the pickiest eater won’t be deterred by Carnival Fascination’s food selections. Carnival's children’s menu features plenty of kid-friendly options including spaghetti with meatballs, hamburgers, hotdogs, pizza, roasted turkey, and more. The buffet-style restaurant allows for guests to be choosy when selecting the size and type of food they wish to eat.


Whether you want to play the slots or the tables, the casino onboard Carnival Fascination has an array of card games and digital games for every guest (over 21 years old). Try your luck and maybe you’ll even win enough to pay for your next sailing with Carnival Cruises.
