4 Night Bahamas (Port Canaveral Roundtrip)
Sail Date: October 23, 2011
Ship: Carnival Sensation
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Traveled As: Family (older children)
Reviewed: 6 years ago
The ship by itself is impressive in size and look. It is clean and well maintained. The cabin as they are of standard size is only suited to four at maximum not five as was allowed. The swimming pool is of poor design and quality. Considering the disappointing aspects of the Bahamas beaches, it will have been nice to see and use a better and larger swimming pool on the ship.

Food and Dining

I guess i was mistaken to think that it will be seafood buffett all the time we were on the ship - mi big mistake. The quality of food is not that bad but it is not excellent.

I like you Vegas style casino although i lost a bundle of money. The stage where the performance were done was kind of small. There were a few good shows but the other are not that great.

Service and Staff

Yes, it is a little better than Freeport but nothing exceptional for tourists to keep coming back or even trying it the first time. I was disappointed.
Don't Miss: Nothing

Is is totally a waste of time going to Freeport since there is nothing to see and enjoy at this port. Nassau is not even of that great a quality place.
Don't Miss: Nothing

Pros: The professionalism and good nature attitude of the cruise ship's staff.

Cons: There is nothing outstanding as far as Freeport and even Nassau Bahamas.

Recommends Carnival Sensation? Yes!
