A wonderful cruise!

Sail Date: September 01, 2011

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Oceanview

This was our first cruise with Carnival. We were very impressed with the size of the stateroom and dinner in the dining room. The staff was pleasant and helpful. Everything was very clean and we will definately sail with Carnival again.

Pros: Dinner in the dining room was excellent.

Cons: It was difficult to determine what floor you were going to on the elevators.

Recommends Carnival Sensation? Yes!

Musicals were very good. The Captain's party was excellent. We wished the Captain had spoken a little longer. We only saw a short segment of a comedian and didn't care for some of his jokes. Not too many choices of activities during the day.
Ship Quality
I didn't use the public restrooms very often, but the few times that I did they were a bit smelly and not too well kept.
Food and Dining
We looked forward to dinner in the dining room every evening. It was excellent. Breakfast was less than expected at both the buffet and the dining room. The lunch buffet was good, but very long lines.
Service and Staff
Dining room staff was attentive and friendly. Cabin service excellent. Anyone you asked for directions was more than willing to help and every single one knew the ship. The only ones that never gave a smile were the people in the photo department and the shops, where I was spending money!
Cabin / Stateroom
Clean and well kept. Our steward Randall gave us very personalized service.
Nassau, Bahamas
We went to the Queen's staircase on the bus. Bahamians are a friendly people and helped us find our way. Was terrific interacting and traveling with the people of the Bahamas.
Don't Miss: Queens Staircase is a don't miss, along with Fort Fincastle. We've been to the Atlantis a few times and its really spectacular.
