4 Night Western Caribbean (Miami Roundtrip)
Sail Date: June 16, 2016
Ship: Carnival Sensation
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Cabin Number: E107
Traveled As: Large Group
Reviewed: 1 year ago

My favorite parts of the cruise were the comedians (Louis Johnson & Jason Blanchard - they were original & funny) and the Serenity deck hot tubs. If I was a kid, I would have thoroughly enjoyed the huge water slides which looked more fun than the tiny packed main pools (reminded me of overcrowded NYC public pools).

 

Our room porter Jonathan was genuinely friendly, helpful & attentive. Staff is hardworking & helpful.

 

The solo guitar player/singer was very good.

 

I wish there was better music & dancing on the main outdoor deck and that there was a private island as a destination.

 

The food was ok with the Mongolian station being the best imho.

 

My main peeve is that the antibacterial dispensers at the food buffet and restaurants always seemed to be empty.

 

We made the best of it & enjoyed ourselves

Ship Tip

5 out of 5
Go to the Wynwood Walls outdoor art exhibit & surrounding art district. It's free (except for parking) and only 10 minutes north of Port of Miami by car.
3 out of 5
Rent bikes & ride around to get Key Lime pie, conch fritters, see the lighthouse & aquarium, southernmost point in US.

Get off the boat asap since the beaches close at 5 or 6pm. Get a driver & go on tour or to beach Then go back to the pier to shop & drink.
