What a GREAT time we had!

Sail Date: May 27, 2007

Reviewed: 9 years ago

Traveled As: Family w/older children

Room Type: Oceanview

This was our first cruise as a family and it was so much FUN! We have 2 young adults and there was plenty to do with them together or even to send them off to enjoy themselves. The shows were fantastic and there were lots of options for entertainment - the pools, mini-golf, casinos, karaoke, BINGO, and the Spa staff were outstanding. There were plenty of activities for all ages. The dinners in the main dining hall was exceptional as respects the food and staff! The photographers did a great job capturing the formal pictures, the ports of call and the casual photos on the ship. When we go cruising again - we will use Carnival!

Pros: The FOOD, the Entertainment, the service!

Cons: Pillows

Recommends Carnival Sensation? Yes!

Ship Quality
Seemed like every time we left the room, one of the staff came in to replace towels, fluff the pillows or vaccumn the floor - loved it!
Loved all the options! I learned how to make towel animals!
Food and Dining
Very friendly! Helped us make choices for the best menu items and even convinced us to order things we would not have normally tried. Always knew our names and greeted us accordingly - loved it!
Cabin / Stateroom
Rooms were very functional, beds were very comfortable, just needed a little firmer pillow, but that's personal taste.
Service and Staff
Cruise Director was so friendly, happy and knowledgable! Entertainment staff really worked hard to get everyone involved and having a good time - truly enjoyable!
Children's Programs
Wheather the younger ones were camping on deck, singing in the stairwells or playing in the pools - every age group had someone on the staff to entertain them - great for those parents who wanted to do a little relaxing (which I didn't do - too many good things to keep me busy).
Freeport, Grand Bahama Island
The beaches were a MUST SEE! Shopping was pleasant as well.
Don't Miss: Para-sailing!
Nassau, Bahamas
Atlantis was so COOL!
Don't Miss: Stingray/snorkel - staff on that island were fantastic!
