A Wonderful Cruise

Sail Date: March 16, 2008

Reviewed: 6 years ago

Traveled As: Family w/young children

Room Type: Oceanview

The stateroom was a little cramped with four of us sharing the king bed, the drop-down, and portable. But with as little time as we spent in the room, it wasn't unreasonable.

Pros: Everything about it

Cons: AirTran was delayed 3 hrs for a flt crew, supposedly b/c the bad weather in Atl. Missed connecting flt. No sympathy from AT. Had to sleep in the Atl airp't & opted to fly into Daytona & rent car; Orlando flts would've jeopardized time. AT lost a bag w/ our "formals"; arrived a day late. DISASTER!

Recommends Carnival Sensation? Yes!

Freeport, Grand Bahama Island
We did some shopping in Port Lucaya. Prices seemed to be a little better than in Nassau.
Nassau, Bahamas
We didn't make it to the straw market (my only regret). One of our best decisions was to head to the Atlantis after 6:00 PM (as recommmended by a local in the Welcome Center). We took our time walking around without the ($30 each) tour guide. The only thing we didn't like was the very stiff competition by the "hair-braid" ladies. We got a sob story, saying that she was limited to one braiding per day (true?), inferring that what we paid for our daughter's braids was all she was making that day (guilt trip).
Don't Miss: The Atlantis Resort--especially the aquarium.
