a great time

Sail Date: February 18, 2007

Reviewed: 6 years ago

Traveled As: Family w/older children

Room Type: Inside

I was very familiar with the Sensation since I had been a passenger on the 3 day cruise two years ago. The ship is beautiful and clean. The food was very good and our waiter was very pleasant. THe staff is friendly and enjoyable.

Pros: the warm weather!

Cons: the room steward

Recommends Carnival Sensation? Yes!

Children's Programs
My two teenagers both enjoyed their teen groups. I think there is room for improvement in the activities schedule.
Cabin / Stateroom
I was disappointed with the service in my stateroom. This was my 7th cruise and the first time I have had poor service. There was no shampoo; the soap dispenser didn't work. I had to request an additional bar of soap on the second day. When I asked for a spare roll of toilet paper, the room steward asked to see my bathroom! (I wasn't planning to take it as a souveneir.)
The comedians were funny. I wasn't impressed with the Carnival performances. One of the biggest disapppointments was the scheduling of activities. I had the late seating for dinner (8:00) and missed many of the guest games, etc. because of it. That has never been a problem before.
Ship Quality
I enjoyed the Sensation very much.
Food and Dining
The food at dinner was delicious. I was surprised to find there was only open seating for lunch the day at sea. The only thing available was a buffet in the Seaview Grill.
Service and Staff
I found the staff to be very friendly and accomodating.
Freeport, Grand Bahama Island
There is not much to do in Freeport.
Nassau, Bahamas
The Breakneck Beach was enjoyalble.
