A little disappointed,

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Sensation | Sail Date: Jan 22, 2015

, ,This was our first  cruise, room was satisfactory but tired, shows good, food fair, arrived in Nassau to late to do excersions and shops closing.  due to boat breakdown.

Day at sea sucked, not enough to do during the day,  between picture takers, and junk tables with items for sale people couldnt walk down hall,defiantly a party boat dont expect to sleep till 1 or 2 am if your lucky.

Customer service fair,

I spent my vacation with fun and without problems. Good service, normal ship. I'd like to take another cruise next time. The price is adequate. I recommend this cruise to people who want have their vacation without problems.

Good

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Sensation | Sail Date: Jan 22, 2015

I liked it, but I believe that the ship already has some good years and the infrastructure left to be desired. But the service cruise was so good. I love to trip in cruise, because you have some activities inside de cruise and you can know a new place.

Carnival Sensation Cruise

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Sensation | Sail Date: Jan 18, 2015

My husband and I had a nice time on our cruise.  The staff was extremely accommodating.  The food was as expected.  The night time entertainment was very good.  The daytime entertainment was lacking.  The refreshment (water/ice) areas in the common areas were not convenient.  The overall price was very good for the experience.

OKAY CRUISE, FOR A SHORT GETAWAY, BUT LACKED SOME

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Sensation | Sail Date: Jan 18, 2015

The cruise was okay for a short getaway and the price was good.  Food was a little below what I had experienced on other cruises.  Service as always was excellent in most areas with the exception of breakfast in the dining room.  Evening shows were more risqué that talent showcased.   Nassau and Freeport are beginning to look a little tired (was our 3rd time there).  Ship is also showing it's age and lack of functionality.

Overall a great vacatopm

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Sensation | Sail Date: Jan 11, 2015

We had a great time. The entertainment on the first and second night however was not the best, the second night Las Vegas type show had no continuity or theme, just a lot of singing and dancing with no common theme other than scantily clad showgirl outfits.  The final show was terrific, it was cohesive and showcased the entertainment staffs talents not just their outfits!  We were in bad weather the first night, the ship was very rocky, not unbearable but many were seasick.  The captain did a great job considering the turbulent seas.  Food was good, service excellent, staff friendly and helpful.  The ship is an older one but it is very well maintained.  Carnival is always fun, that's the reason we always return to their cruise line.

Cruise was fine if you had never been, prices on everything was higher. The aquarium that was free last trip not charges per person.

First cruise

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Sensation | Sail Date: Jan 11, 2015

The drink packages for soda should be cheaper... The food for the first few nights was awesome.... We had questions about our bill that we were confused on...Customer Service wasn't friendly and never gave a clear understanding...the public bathrooms were kept clean until Tuesday night and Wednesday....no matter which bathrooms I went to they were a mess and out of tissue...Lou Wayne was funny and very friendly....Over all was a fun first cruise....

Had a great time and really enjoyed it. There was always something going on and cruise director Josh was totally awesome. From the newlywed game to cornhole tournament to the 80's bash we had the time of our lives

One word: Awesome!

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Sensation | Sail Date: Jan 08, 2015

My 21 year old daughter and I went on this 3 day cruise and had the time of our lives.  We had no idea what to expect, first time for both of us.  We did know food was included but did not know that also included 24 hour buffets, unlimited room service and rise and shine breakfast delivered to your door each morning.  Each night we were given the activity list for the following day.  We normally don't join in games and such but we had SO much fun with the trivia games, magic shows, comedy shows, really too much to list.  And the best part was we paid Nothing other than the price of the cruise. A very small $12 per day/per person fee was charged on the last day ($72 for 3 days).  I do not know how they can offer so much for such a low fee, unbelievable!! BEST trip ever :)

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.
