Carnival Sensation Overview

Set sail for fun-filled days and nights aboard the Sensation. Soak up the sun, cool off in one of the pools, and zip down the waterslide for a refreshing splash! The Ecstasy Dining Room serves up savory gourmet fare, and the Seaview Bar & Grill is perfect for a casual bite; kids can choose their favorites from the special children's menus. Camp Carnival has lots of fun activities for the young ones, morning till night, while older kids can hang out at the Teen Club for music, movies, and video games. Do what you want - or do nothing at all. At night, take in a show in the Kaleidoscope Dance Club. Or, unwind with a drink at the Mirage Bar before heading to the exciting Club Vegas Casino.

807 Carnival Sensation Tips

Nov 25, 2013

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.

The dining room was empty at lunch time. It was quiet and relaxing.
