December 2014 - Carnival Sensation to Caribbean - Bahamas
I'm Platinum with Carnival and quite familiar with the Sensation having cruised on her twice before. I'm also over 65 and am still involved with exceptional foster children who have behavior issues. So when I saw the low price being offered before Christmas had to book it even though it required court orders to take them out of country. So glad I did. When I explained the level of care required for my eight year old the staff handed me a phone for emergencies and cheerfully gave my little girl the best time of her life. She got up each day eager to go play and had none of the anxieties that are usually associated with group play. The important difference between Camp Carnival and the cruise we took the kids on last March is the extended hours. With Carnival you don't have to spend your cruise clock watching, waiting to drop off and pick up several times a day. They took them in the morning and it was our choice when to get them except for a couple of closures around five PM to prepare for night. So don't let the ship being older and smaller than some of the others in the fleet bother you. The Fantasy class is just big enough to have everything your little ones need to have a great time with no waiting in long lines to use the pool or golf or whirlpools.
