Poor Quality All Around from Carnival

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

We went on our Carnival Cruise with high expectations of a fantastic trip, we both have been on Cruises in the past, ( this trip  was our honeymoon ) myself, I was on a Norwegian Cruise,  and my new Bride, she has been  on a Royal Caribbean Cruise.   The quality of our past cruises was far better then Carnival in every way.  We are very disappointed with Carnival and their employees.  We would not recommend a cruise with Carnival to our friends or anyone who asks. Norwegian Cruise lines is the way to go !!!!

Cruise Review

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

 

We really enjoyed this cruise.  

This cruise was taken as a "relaxation" cruise.  No excursions were booked nor was there any specific itinerary.  We were able to do a little shopping, sightseeing, and a LOT or relaxing.  It was a little cold to go to beaches and we never  put on our swimsuits.  

The ship was very clean and our room was maintained very well!  The peeps even knew us by name.

we had a great time , the ship is a little older but it was still very nice, there were 4 of us and we had plenty of time to have alone time with our loved ones, plenty of things to do on board, everyone was very nice.

Smoking area

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Sensation | Sail Date: Feb 05, 2015

My fiance and I had a good time during our cruise, but the smokers didn't follow instructions for the designated smoking area.  Each area was assigned smoking and nonsmoking, but it seem that staff members weren't  imposing this policy. We only got to enjoy a little time at the pool because very where we turned you had smokers.  Overall, our experience was good aside from the smell cigarettes near our cabinet E188, pool area and casino.

Had a great Time!!!

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Sensation | Sail Date: Feb 05, 2015

This cruise was well worth the money I spent.  To put the icing on the cake I hit in the casino which made my trip essentially a FREEBIE!!!  The food was great and I'm glad I went.

This was a great first cruise for me and my fiance. The food was delicious, rooms were clean, staff was nice. Our only complaint is that the pool was really small.

Great first cruise

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Sensation | Sail Date: Feb 01, 2015

Loved our cruise, will book another one for a longer time. Plan to budget well for alcohol and tipping. There was plenty to do for all ages, but if you are 20-30, Carnival cruise is for you! Pack light, but plan to bring a sweater or light jacket, because nights are very cool. The best part is picking a quiet spot on the deck of the ship and watching the sunrise :-).

Great staff on the cruise

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Sensation | Sail Date: Feb 01, 2015

Very friendly staff, good times with P.M. buffet servers (Lido deck rear) especially with Zoanna, Jennifer, and Daria who were great!

Ecstasy dining room very good except for very loud speakers blasting down on our table, hurting my ears.  I spoke with the maitre-D and the next evening it seemed to be a little better, but still very loud.

Even the captain seemed to be sensitive to those times when ocean waves made the ship rock a little, and sailed parallel to prevailing winds.

Good experience.

Popular tips for Carnival Sensation.


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.
