An unforgettable experience

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Sensation | Sail Date: May 21, 2015

Amazing staff and excellent dining experience! Our waiter during our late dining could have been less rude. 

Overall if felt like living in a dream you did not want to wake up from. From the amazing food, to the people you can meet during the trip. This is my third time and it never fails to amaze how customer service can mean so much during a cruise.

Nothing New

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Sensation | Sail Date: May 10, 2015

I have been to the Bahamas on 3 previous occasions. This visit was no different but an enjoyable getaway.

For the length of the cruise and limited things to do (excursions are WAY over priced) it was fun.

Bahamas

The cabin was very nice.  Our room steward was thorough.  The shows were below average compared to other cruise lines.  Meal choices at dinner were below average. The wait staff were very helpful and very good in serving me.   For the first time ever I had to return my veal parm.  It was tough and tasteless and over-cooked.  There were very few activities to attend.

Great Vacation. .. But

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Sensation | Sail Date: May 10, 2015

I loved this cruise. unfortunately there were not as may activities as i was expecting. also, not really good for people between 18-20 unless all you want to do is go to the casino. they can go to the club onboard but there are only people who are in their late 20s. I feel like this cruise focused mainly on the 30--40 age range

Looking for fun?

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Sensation | Sail Date: May 07, 2015

This cruise is a short, fun cruise.  It is definitely more of a party atmosphere and not really suitable for children.  The ocean views from the upper decks are amazing.

Can't wait to go again!

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Sensation | Sail Date: May 03, 2015

This was my husband's and my first cruise and we had high expectations. We were not let down. 

The ship's décor is a bit out-dated, but this was such a minimal detail compared to the positive things we enjoyed.

We stuck to the PG rated comedy show and it was very funny. Highly recommend, however; you may not want to sit in the front row if you don't want to like attention. :)

We ate our dinners in the Ecstasy Dining Room. Each meal was excellent with plenty of delicious options to choose from.  Our waiter was Nego and he did a superb job!  He was even able to provide me with one of the recipes (had it printed out for me) that my husband had eaten the night before.  Thanks for this!

The wait staff puts on a show each night after dinner. They made it very fun for everyone, either singing to their guest or dancing.  I don't know how they produce so much energy every night!

The pool was very nice and there are plenty of lounge chairs through-out the decks of the ship.

Drinks are super yummy and the drink-servers (while you're soaking up the sun) were not only friendly, they remembered what we had to drink the night before! This is pretty good, with as many people as they serve each day.

The rooms are comfy and clean.  We stayed in a balcony suite. It was worth the money.  We will always remember the beautiful moonlight while we sat on our private balcony and listened to the waves lapping against the ship. The sunrises are beautiful while drinking your coffee and eating a fresh croissant as well! Room service!

Lots to do for children.  We will definitely bring our son next time.

We can't wait to do it again next year!

Bring a Power Strip (surge protector) - You'll probably only have a single 110v outlet in your cabin, bringing a power strip will allow you to charge multiple phones or laptops. *Note: Check with your cruise line if you have questions about what electrical devices are permitted.

use the stairs whenever possible so you can eat as much food as you like and try something new.

Enjoy a sunset from the sports deck!
