Default fantasy or sensation for 4 day cruise?

We are trying to decide which 4 day cruise. We've been to the Bahamas, enjoyed it, wouldn't mind going there again. The 4 day on the Sensation only does one port in Cozumel for 17 hrs. Anyone ever been on this one port itinerary? We'd rather go out of either Tampa, Orlando, of New Orleans. Thanks for your input.

Sue, here's my opinion. Have done Fantasy and Sensation within the last year. Sensation wins hands, down no comparison. However, I did the 5 day Sensation cruise which included Grand Caymen. I'd strongly suggest stretching to 5 if at all possible. If you're limited to Cozumel, it is the better of the two ports and you can also take the water taxi to Playa del Carmen on the mainland. I do prefer Port Canaveral to Tampa, but Western Caribbean blows away Bahamas.

Sue, I agree. Just came back from the Fantasy, Was not impressed at all with the Bahamas. Cozumel definately wins. Also not as choppy of Seas.

Ship-wise the Fantasy is newly refurbished (this fall). Port-wise, I can't say. We are doing the Western Caribbean this September. You've been to the Bahamas, so know what to expect.

Choppy seas? Don't think you can say one is choppier than the other. Depends on weather...
