Great cruise in every way!

Sail Date: October 01, 2009

Reviewed: 7 years ago

Traveled As: Singles/Friends

Room Type: Oceanview

Cape Canaveral has the most efficient check-in process. From the time we locked our car to standing on deck was 15minutes!!! The ship was very clean & visually appealing. The staff was attentive & pleasant.
Food was Fabulous!!! Entertainment was typical cruise stuff.
both ports of call, Freeport & Nassau were heavenly. We spent a lot of time in the beautiful Bahama water. Atlantis Beach Day tour ($89.00) was overpriced. Cruise passengers are escorted to a designated beach area which is a "hike & a 1/2" in the hot sun, up & down stairs away from the guests. There are no conveniently located lavatories. They promise chairs, but only a small number have sun visors atteched. Umbrella rental (if you weren't lucky enough to get a good chair) is $30.00 in addition to the $89.00 tour. The water was fantastic, however, you can take a taxi to Cable beach for a lot less!

Pros: Wonderful Crew, Food & Entertainment

Cons: Nothing!

Recommends Carnival Sensation? Yes!

Cabin / Stateroom
Bathrooms appear clean but don't smell clean. Typical on many cruise ships.
Ship Quality
Both public & in-stateroom lavatories have an awful odor which is not unique to this ship. Everything else was wonderful!
Food and Dining
Quality of food was excellant. Great choices & Fantastic service!!!!
