Awesome Spring Break

Sail Date: March 08, 2009

Reviewed: 8 years ago

Traveled As: Singles/Friends

Room Type: Oceanview

From the outside of this ship, you can tell it is an older ship. But the inside has been completely renovated and there are flat screen tv's in every room. The staff was always friendly and the room service was awesome. Dinner each night was the best part for me because I LOVE food!! If you have a chance to go on this cruise, I would definitely recommend it. It was a great vacation.

Pros: Food, Activities, Pool Slides, Etc.

Cons: waiting in line for lunch, have to leave the ship so early on departure day

Recommends Carnival Sensation? Yes!

Ship Quality
Food and Dining
Cabin / Stateroom
Our stateroom was cleaned twice a day. This was an awesome amenity. I also really enjoyed the free room service (although it was a little slow)!!
Service and Staff
The adult comedy shows were hilarious.
Nassau, Bahamas
Nassau was definitely the better port we visited. If you wanted to do some shopping, all you had to do was walk down the peer and you were right at the shops and the straw market. (do not pay full price for anything at the market) That morning we went on a catamaran out to a coral reef to snorkel and that was beautiful and a ton of fun. On the way back, they had all you could drink rum punch and the whole thing was only $49 for 3.5hrs. Definitely worth the money. That afternoon we rented mopeds and that was a great way to get around the island. We rode over to Atlantis and rode all around Nassau. (you have to pay a $1 toll to get onto paradise island)
Don't Miss: Atlantis and Beaches on Paradise Island.
Freeport, Grand Bahama Island
The bad thing is at this port you have to take a cab to be able to get to the beach or the better shopping areas. It was only $5/person each way. I would definitely NOT stay at the area where the ship docks because it kind of looks like an abondened town.
Don't Miss: Jet Ski rentals right outside the Isle of Capri Casino on the beach. (20 or 30 mins is definitely sufficient)
