We sailed on the Sensation for a 4-day to the Bahamas. We have only cruised once before, on the Destiny before it went into drydock to be transformed to the Sensation. That cruise was just my wife and I for our anniversary.

This time out we took our three children aged 18, 16 and 13. We had two cabins on the Sensation - one balcony and an interior across the hall for the children.

We enjoyed our trip - the staff on the Sensation seemed truly engaged in making sure guests had a good time. All the staff we interacted with - in particular our cabin steward and our team headwaiter in the dining room, were so friendly and fun.

The ship itself was smaller than the Destiny, as well as smaller cabins and having fewer amenities. That took some getting used to, but it was not a problem in the end. We were expecting some of it. The pool had been drained for some repairs, and was not available until late evening on embarkation day. It worked out in the end, More but they could have done a better job communicating that to guests.

Our 13-year old took part in the camp program, made some new friends, and was out doing activities every evening.

The food was delicious at every meal in the dining room. Less

Cabin review: Balcony

The bed was very comfortable. No alternative seating other than a desk chair which was not comfortable. Bathrooms were in good condition and worked well for us. Cupboards had lots of storage for our things, and suitcases fit under the bed easily. Balcony was a decent size and had two chairs.
