4 Night Bahamas (Port Canaveral Roundtrip)
Sail Date: November 23, 2014
Ship: Carnival Sensation
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 3 years ago

This was our first trip on Carnival.  And, sadly, our last.  The ship was old with a bit tacky decor.  The service was second rate and the food was blah.  They didn't even have many hand sanitizer dispensers and no staff member to insist on it before entrance to the buffet or dining room.  Sad

We enjoyed our excursion in Nassau and our company at dinners.l

Food and Dining

Just okay. Buffet did not have many choices and it was open only sporadically.

No opportunities to see the show, based on meal times. We enjoyed the piano player, even though he seemed unhappy to be there. They had a really great rock group playing in the area near the photo booths.

Service and Staff

3 out of 5
Not well trained. In the buffet, staff members would ignore you or even cut in front of passengers. Floor was always wet and greasy.

Ship Quality

1 out of 5
Very worn and decor was tacky. More 80's than classy resort.

Cabin / Stateroom

It was fine. "Not bad".

Ship Tip

Honestly not a lot of fun. The music by the pool was so loud it was difficult to speak to the person next to you.
