3 out of 5

This cruise was our first experience

Sail Date: November 27, 2011

Reviewed: 5 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

Could use a new facelift in color and accents. Alittle too much purple and carpet did not match any of the color theme throughout. Upper panels in Fantasia Lounge above stage were missing and need to be fixed.

Pros: Having a balcony room

Cons: Food and the color purple everywhere

Recommends Carnival Sensation? Yes!

Food and Dining
Meals not served in a timely fashion. Milk placed on shelf above fruits were not cold but room temperature, that would also include the yogurt as well. Misunderstood that food was available 24 hours a day, were disappointed that at times only one buffet line was open and other times no buffet line was in service and pizza and sandwiches our only option for food.
Ship Quality
Saw the dance show, very good. Saw one comedy show with your two comedians, very good. Was disappointed in the bingo we attended, did not realize that it was a pay event, $20 for one game very expensive. would not do that again.
Cabin / Stateroom
Balcony room was wonderful, allowed us the privacy and enjoyment of the ocean sounds and quietness and peace. Room was always cleaned and very well taken care of.
Service and Staff
Our steward was most friendly and very pleasant at all times. Harry was most attentive to all our needs. All other ship staff was very kind and considerate and made sure we received what we asked for.
Freeport, Grand Bahama Island
Lousy landing spot, not very impressing upon debarkation. did the shopping thing there at port, also not much of a variety of items to choose from, all selling basically the same thing.
Don't Miss: n/a
Nassau, Bahamas
More things to do, however, weather was a factor there. Would have ventured further into the surrounding area if it hadn't rained.
Don't Miss: n/a
