This was our first cruise and we had a blast!!! The staff were very friendly and helpful and did whatever they could to make our cruise enjoyable. Never a chance to get bored because there always seemed to be some sort of activity going on. There really was something for everyone from bingo, mini golf, vegging near the pool, shows, casinos, nightclubs, etc. The food wasn't bad either!!! There seemed to be something for everyone: omelets made-to-order for breakfast, burgers, chicken nuggets, stir fry made- to-order, and killer desserts to name just a few. Did I forget to mention the pizza and soft-serve ice cream available 24/7!! I need their recipe for their lemonade - it was delicious. This might have been our first cruise but it will definitely not be our last.

Cabin / Stateroom

3 out of 5
The stateroom was adequate for our needs - we were not in it much. It was always clean.

We did a half day snorkel in Nassau and had a great time. Food is a bit pricey. We walked around some of the shops near the port. You could definitely tell they relied on tourism because everyone was trying to sell you something.

Pros: The food choices.

Cons: Wait time in line for the buffet lines.

Recommends Carnival Sensation? Yes!
