The Sensation does not have a steak restaurant and this is a major negative for "Fishophobes" like me. That apart the restaurants were good. The service was understandably slow but the staff were excellent. Too much of the shore visit to Freeport was wasted by a long journey through the moribund "industrial area" The visit to the gardens was very pleasant and Marilyn the guide was very entertaining. The visit to Nassau was badly designed and we spent most of the time in what could generously be described as a slum area. The time in Atlantis was interesting although the contrast between the extravagance of the resort compared to the rest of the Nassau we saw was obscene. should remodel the Freeport shore trip but should scrap the Nassau trip altogether. Cruisers would be better off taking a taxi ride to the more affluent areas.

Pros: Accommodation, cleanliness & food all good - entertainment tolerable

Cons: Shore trips - tolerable at best dreadful at worst
