A SO SO Time

Sail Date: August 31, 2006

Reviewed: 7 years ago

Traveled As: Family (young children)

Room Type: Oceanview

The ship - Sensation had a staff that was of average in the hospitality industry.
The bartendars have little spunk or personality. The room steward was great once we got a hold of him - had to call three times and eventually go in infomration desk and request a meeting. Our room - non smoking smelled to high heaven of tobacco as did the linens and the pillows.
There was a foul odor in the hall - sewage. The bathrooms overall throughout the ship were not up to standards.
The Dining Room was the better part of the cruise....staff was friendly,accomodating and the food was tasty, creatvie and presentation thoughtful.
The day at Seas would be better spent at a nicer port than Nassau. Nassau's Port is a dump! I am certain the other side of the island is nice but the port is less than desireable.

All in all it was a so, so time......I wouldn't do this cruise again, nor would I recommend it...this was our third cruise(second with Carnivval. Our first was the Inspiration - to the Eastern Carribean - a much better trip!

Pros: Snorkling and the Stingray Encounter, On the Ship the show the last night.....

Cons: Not enough to do as a "family" with the kids 11 & 7

Nassau, Bahamas
A Dump
Don't Miss: String ray Encounter and snorkeling was good
