Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

The ship we sailed on was named the Sensation. It was beautiful, and HUGE! pools were to small however. Sun deck and sports deck were NOT handicap accessible no elevator to those areas. Our room was one with a balcony it was very spacious, comfort was unsurpassed by even 5 star hotels. The room service and the crew for cleaning was outstanding. The ship offered many fun filled areas. Several bars, all with different types of music to suit the needs of most passengers. One comedian [Happy Cole] was extremely funny, we went to his Adult Only show late evening. I do not remember the second comedian 's name; probably because she wasn't worth remembering, her show consisited of nothing but smut. Yes there is a difference between funny use of profanity and just plain smut. The dance shows were outstanding as well as the juggling acts. The towel folding seminar is a fun thing to do. You learn to make those neet towel creatures you find in your state room every evening. All of the staff was very helpful friendly and fun they remember your name. VERY IMPORTANT RECOMMENDATION --- make certain you book your shore excursions as soon as you can even before the cruise or you may not get what you want to do because it will be sold out. The Dolphin adventure sold out within the first 10 minutes of arriving on the ship for both days

Pros: the comedian show Happy Cole left the second comedian she was not funny

Cons: the food

Food and Dining
needs a new chef!!!!!!! prime rib very over cooked same with filet migon lido deck offered hambergs [hocky pucks] sorry I do not have good things to say about the food except that if you did not like something they immediately got you something else.
Ship Quality
The ship was always sparkeling clean
Service and Staff
were were assigned the same staff members and table for the entire cruise so we really got to know our waitress she was wonderful and fun. the room staff was very efficient and took care of any little thing right away. I felt like a queen waited on hand and foot UNBELIEVABLE the staff could not have been better in any way
Cabin / Stateroom
Better than a 5 stare hotel as for the suites with the balcony. I did see the inside state rooms they are very small. I would recommend the mini suite atleast for anyone who asks
Nassau, Bahamas
to much city this one should have been the short time . to crowded much more expendsive
Don't Miss: snorkeling coral reef
Freeport, Grand Bahama Island
NOT NEAR ENOUGH TIME AT THIS PORT great relaxation if there was more time
Don't Miss: The beach is beautiful the water is warm and clear enteract with the dolphins
