Overall impression was very positive. Very nice vacation. Good experiences throughout. People were friendly, helpful and the ship was well maintained (except for one bathroom by ht epool that seemed to be out of order a lot).

Ship Experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
Really enjoyed the more informal dining area. The formal dining room area was very attractive. Great service. Food was good, but maybe our expectations were so high going in they would have been difficult to meet.

Entertainment

5 out of 5
We didn't do that much on board (went to one show, hung otu at the pool). We mostly went for a relaxing informal escape, and got everything we wanted. The entertainment we did see was very good.

Children's Programs

5 out of 5
Our daughter started out not wanting to go to the camp carnival activities. By the end of the third day she was asking when she could come back. They really won her over.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Great attitudes throughout. Very open to greeting and smiling. Nice atmosphere. Room steward was excellent. Made little towel animals that our daughter found fascinating.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
This was our first cruise so hard to really compare to anything else, but the ship for all the people never seemed crowded. Clean, neat and well maintained.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Great bed for sleeping. Very comfortable. You don't spend a lot of time in the room, but three of us managed to manuever around in it with minimal effort. We had no problems with the room.

Ports Of Call

Nassau, Bahamas

Dolphin encounter at Blue Lagoon was really nice. Kind of on th epricey side for what you get, but considering the prices of everything else worth the time and money. Great staff. We did not get downtown at all since it was a national holiday when we were there.

Pros: Cruise staff, customer service

Cons: To be blunt, the food in the main dining room

Recommends Carnival Sensation? Yes!
