November 2014 - Carnival Sensation to Caribbean - Bahamas
We were a little concerned after reading some of the reviews prior to the cruise, but we found most of the negatives unfounded. We have previously sailed on the Norwegian Epic twice this year so trying to compare this short trip was not a fair comparison. Boarding was easy and the staff made you feel comfortable. Our room was clean and bright, but since it is an older ship, needs a little updating. The food, overall, was very good and the service & servers deserve a 10 out of 10. We felt there could have been a little more entertainment , but what they had was very good. Reviews have complained of cigarette smoke throughout the ship which we didn't find true although you will find it offensive if you're a non-smoker near the casino area and you'll occasionally smell near the elevator areas for some reason. In summation, we found this ship an excellent value for what you pay for it.
