3 out of 5

An over-rated cruise

Sail Date: October 23, 2011

Reviewed: 5 years ago

Traveled As: Family (older children)

Room Type: Oceanview

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.

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!

Ship Quality
See prior comment.
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.
Cabin / Stateroom
See first comment.
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
If there is anything that is very positive on this ship is the friendliness, and good attitudes of the Ship staff.
Freeport, Grand Bahama Island
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
Nassau, Bahamas
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
