We will be on the Sensation at the end of August to Nassau and Freeport. This will be our 12th cruise and our 3rd to the Bahamas. Last time in Nassau, we booked the Carnival Blackbeard's Cay excursion. It was very reasonable in price and we loved it. They took us out on a boat that probably held about 75 to 100 passengers, played nice music and had drinks. The beach and water were gorgeous and there was a nice place to get lunch there (next door to Sandals). Some of the group added the stingray swim to their excursion, but we just enjoyed the water and the beach.
We were back to the ship for lunch and a quick change of clothes, then took a taxi over to Atlantis where we went throught Casino and I got a players card and then we went to the aquarium and looked around the shops there. We still made it back to the ship in time to shower and dress for dinner. It was a very nice, relaxing day.
