Wonderful Time - Carnival Sensation - Nassau
Embarkation: Port Canaveral (Orlando)
What you should consider: Drink/Sodas are expensive aboard the ship. You can bring your own soda. Many passengers brought 12 packs of sodas and water.
Excursions: We opted not to take a Carnival excursion. We did some pre-cruise research and found that the Melia Nassau Beach Hotel offers a "Day-Pass" for $30 More pp/pd. You get access to their pools and towels ($30 deposit -returned when towel card returned). They have jet ski/kayak rentals and a nice area to snorkel in. There is a beach bar and restaurant. To get to the Melia Beach Hotel, take bus 10 ($1.25 each way). A taxi will cost $20 each way.
Our cruise had a Live Concert with Olivia Newton John ($20 pp) Great concert!!!
The only issue: The people in the cabin next to us were a little loud at 3am, a quick call to "Guest Services" and they quieted down.
Disembarkation: We decided to walk off "Self-Assisted" meaning we carried our own luggage off. This was extremely quick without issue. Less
Cabin review: U21
Nice sized room - plenty of space for 3 day cruise
Port and Shore Excursions
This is not an Excursion purchased on the ship.
Took the #10 bus ($1.25) from downtown to Melia Nassau Beach Hotel. Purchased a "Day Pass" ($30 pp) and enjoyed 3 pools, beach chairs, umbrellas, beach bar, and beach side restaurant. The "Day-Pass" is good from 7:30 am to 7pm. Not like the shipboard excursions that limit you to 3 to 4 hours.
Older ship showing its age but...
