Won't sail the Caribbean in August again

Sail Date: August 17, 2008

Reviewed: 8 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Oceanview

Our cruise would have probably been better had we gone in the spring instead of the summer which is hurricane season for the Caribbean

Pros: Room Service, Turn Down Service

Cons: All of our excursions were rained out

Recommends Carnival Sensation? No.

Though I am glad that they erred on the side of safety, our excursions were cancelled. We had fun even though we were unable go glass bottom boating and snorkeling. We probably won't sail to the Caribbean in August again. It's hurricane season.
Ship Quality
The funship Sensation has very dated decor. It is very reminiscent of the 70's.
Food and Dining
I enjoyed the variety. It was sometimes cooler than I wanted, but it was good nonetheless
Cabin / Stateroom
We had an oceanview room and we had a nice space although if I were going with someone other than my husband, I would probably want something a little bigger. As it was, we wanted to remain very close :).
Service and Staff
The crew is very talented and attentive. Our steward, Raj was the best. The turn down service was a hoot. We had towels in the shapes of an elephant, an stingray and a manatee. They were fun.
Freeport, Grand Bahama Island
It rained on us
Nassau, Bahamas
The Atlantis' aquarium is a definite must see
