Carnival Sensation

September 2014 - Carnival Sensation to Caribbean - Bahamas

Wonderful Service!

We both enjoyed the cruise on Sensation.  This was our first cruise with Live concert onboard.  It was sold out.  Styx put on a good show.  The best part of the cruise was the friendly top notch service.  Our Maitre D', Amith, was extremely friendly and catered to our every need.  I recommend our waiter, Thuthisa, who was so anxious to please us.  The ship was clean and food was great!

Carnival Sunshine

August 2014 - Carnival Sunshine to Caribbean - Southern

Dining Experience

I was very disappointed in dining arrangements.  First of all, we could not get a table for two in the early or late dining room because we were told it was too small and only had larger tables.  So we had to do the anytime dining.   We had to go up to deck 5 every night before dining, wait in line to get a table number, registered at a counter, get a printed receipt,  and then go down two decks to the actual dining room. We had a different table each night.  We asked for table for two but they were actually only eight or ten inches apart so you heard everything the other table was saying.  We had different waiters every night so we did not get the pleasure of knowing our servers.  We ended up getting a table for 4 a couple nights and had more privacy.  Another thing I need to mention is the lack of enforcement of the dining room rules.  There were people in the formal dining room with flip flops, hats, tank tops, etc., and nothing was ever said to them.   If you have rules, they need to be enforced.  Lastly, the VIP disembark process was a joke.  There were people waiting in the designated area that were clearly not VIP's.  They had different color cards hanging around their necks in clear view so you could tell they weren't.  Nothing was said to them either.  There needs to be someone enforcing that rule as soon as the person enters.
