Default Any last minute tips for Sensation

Hi, I am leaving on a 4 day on Sensation Sunday. Does anyone have any last minute tips, suggestions? Must see or do or don't bother?

Thanks

Definitely plan an excursion in Freeport even it's just hoppin a cab to Port Lucaya. There's NOTHING at the pier itself. Check out the little patio area on both sides of the ship out the back doors of the lido buffet. Sensation's a great ship and Port Canaveral's the BEST.

Check out the 80's show. I liked it a lot.

DON'T do the glass bottom boat excursion in Freeport. lame coral reefs, though the ride along the coast was really nice!

DO Atlantis. It was magnificent! You'll especially love Zeus, the largest of their 3 manta rays. Take videos of the aquarium creatures!

also check out the photos that Brian (linuxpm) and I posted in the gallary of our July and August Sensation cruises!

You can go to the Atlantis after 6:00 PM for free. Real easy to take a taxi over.

I have heard about the secret doors to get to the bow of the ship. Where are they on Sensation?

Oh, when we disembark, can you do self disembark or do you have to put your luggage outside the night before?

You can self assist disembark, but you MUST be able to have one hand available to hold the handrail on the escalators. They won't allow you on the escalator in the terminal if you don't. Also, you'll have to be able to handle your luggage on the stairwells in the ship during debarkation. Anything more than one suitcase and MAYBE a small carry-on per passenger would be VERY DIFFICULT.
