Vacation Disappointment

Sail Date: July 24, 2008

Reviewed: 6 years ago

Traveled As: Family w/older children

Room Type: Oceanview

We recently sailed on the Sensation and found it to be extremely disappointing. We had never cruised before and had never been to the Bahamas. From the time we arrived to board the ship until the time we departed the ship we found it to be totally non relaxing! The majority of the crew was rude and hollered commands as if they were herding a ship full of cattle instead of paying customers. We had booked a 50 minute massage - we were finished with our massage and back down to our room in 50 minutes. We booked a teen spa day for 3 girls which consisted of them giving each other the services. Very awkward for teenagers who don't know each other and are giving each other personal services. When we entered the ship it was as though you were in the 70's. We paid well for what was suppose to be a 5 hour excursion to the bahamas and ended up being about a 3 hour excursion instead. I will say that our room was always clean and the evening dining was fantastic.

Pros: Shows and Food in Dining Room

Cons: Majority of the crew was rude and the teen spa day
