There is no difference. Both are Fantasy-class ships and I don't believe either has had the 'Evolutions Of Fun' modification to the pool deck performed yet.

I have been on both ships. They are virtually identical as Dave noted. The decor and theme should be the only difference. They were both refurbished in 2006. I am thinking about going on the Fascination out of JAX next year. Just waiting on the drydock schedule to be released about the Evolutions of Fun completion.

As a orignal guest on the maiden voyage of the Sensation in Nov.1993 I have to say that both ship are identical in the way they do everything even back then. I have also been a crewmate on the Ecxtasy in 1995 and what a difference between ships. Personally I would stick with either the Fascination or Sensation

I bet that was an experience! What Dept. did you work in?

I know is off topic, but it is always interesting to hear from past crew members.

I was in the kitchen for the 2 1/2 years that I was on the Ecxtasy. I'm a registerd Journeyman Chef with Red, Blue & Gold seals. I had just finished working in Georgetown for 6 yrs when I was accepted as staff on the Ecxtasy. So some of the awesome ice and fat carvings were probably mine, as well as the fruit and seafood displays.
Would I do it again - you bet I would
