An Amazing Cruise!!

Sail Date: September 04, 2011

Reviewed: 5 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Oceanview

My overall impression of the ship was that it is in desperate need of an update but everything was very clean and well spaced!

Pros: The staff, ports, food

Cons: The shows

Recommends Carnival Sensation? Yes!

The shows were not that great. They were something to do, but we walked out of one of the comedy shows because it was that horrible. The good thing is, we did not spend that much time on the boat when we were docked so the shows didn't matter that much to us. The night club was a lot of fun though for 70s, 80s and 90s music!!
Cabin / Stateroom
We got the ocean view and it was a perfect size for us. When we go next time with our daughter we will probably opt for a balcony though for more room. The room was always clean and we had no problems.
Service and Staff
We LOVED the staff! The only part we didn't like was that the people who load your bags to your room really don't care and sling your stuff around. We saint have a choice but to let them take our bags when we arrived and when we finally did get our bags mine was broken. We watched them push bags off the carts and slam them to the ground! Needless to say we took our own bags with us when we departed the ship.
Ship Quality
The ship needs to be redecorated since it has a sort of 80s theme to it but overall it was a nicely kept ship.
Food and Dining
The food was great and the wait staff was always willing to meet your needs.
Nassau, Bahamas
We went on a snorkeling excursion and it was amazing! There were so many fish and the last stop was with sharks!! A MUST!
Don't Miss: The shark snorkel excursion
Freeport, Grand Bahama Island
We only had about 9 hours at this port so we just went to the beach and did some shopping off the beach. It was so relaxing!
Don't Miss: Lounging at the beach
