Fun Cruise

Sail Date: March 10, 2011

Reviewed: 6 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Oceanview

The ship is in good shape, the crew was good, and the voyage was pleasant. Food could have been much better, especially the morning/afternoon meals. Events didn't seem to fit our schedule very well and there didn't seem to be many things going on.

Pros: Travel, destination

Cons: Event timing, activities

Recommends Carnival Sensation? Yes!

Food and Dining
The food was good. Not great and not bad, definitely could have been better. The evening meal was well presented, but for the price of the cruise I expected more. Any other meal time and the food was much lower quality than I expected, and there was usually a (very!) limited selection if you wanted something during irregular hours.
Ship Quality
Cabin / Stateroom
The twin bed conversion to queen needs some mechanism to hold the two mattresses together. Frequently had to adjust them as the gap widened. Great room overall.
Service and Staff
The crew was friendly and generally very helpful. Wish some of them spoke English a little better, but we managed to get by just fine.
Nassau, Bahamas
We had a great time walking around the city, although many of the local shops were closed by the time we got back from snorkeling. More time in port and less at sea would've been better.
