3 Night Bahamas (Port Canaveral Roundtrip)
Sail Date: October 13, 2011
Ship: Carnival Sensation
Cabin Type: Oceanview

Aging ship that shows age in many ways. Update in 2009 helped but not enough. I've been on nearly 20 cruises and I simply was disappointed.

Food and Dining

Casino was small and smelled of smoke. No movie theater.

Children's Programs

3 out of 5
Children's program seemed adequate (it was free which was a plus!) The space was small and I could see our son quickly becoming board of it.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
We had great servers who went out of their way to entertain and engage with our 2.5 year old son.

Ship Quality

3 out of 5
Outdated ship with minor updates in 2009.

Cabin / Stateroom

3 out of 5
Small, but clean.

Atlantis was great, but expensive. Really the only thing to do. If you want to get the most of it.... shell out for a tour. The water park is overpriced but you got a good deal on the cruise so shell out.

Pros: Staff friendliness

Cons: Aging ship.

Recommends Carnival Sensation? Yes!
