Carnival Cruise Line is sending yet another Fantasy-class cruiseship for recycling.

The 70,500-gt Carnival Fascination (built 1994) is the fourth of the eight-strong class of cruiseships to be sold for scrap. These ships have long been regarded as the workhorses of the Carnival fleet.

Previously Carnival had indicated that it was selling only unrefurbished units of the class, and had earmarked the upgraded Carnival Fascination for long-term cold lay-up in Cadiz.
