Overall, we had a very nice family vacation with many memories to keep with us. Though you can't expect for everything to be perfect, it would be nice to more variety and selections in onboard activities and entertainment that families can enjoy.

The trip itself was good,it's always great to get away. I was dissatisfied with some things on the ship. The ship is older compared to other ships. I love Carnival but I will never cruise on The Sensation again.

Had a great time. Lots to do at port and on the ship. We actually missed a few things, there was so much going on! And they Re making me write at least 150 characters in this field, which is stupid. I do,t have that much to say but I'm hoping this puts me over the minimum so I can stop staring at this page over and over and over.

Overall the cruise was enjoyable and my kids had a great time. The staff was friendly and the other travelers were friendly and enjoyable as well. The food in the dinning room was great. Just wish there was a basketball court for the boys!

The entire experience was a good one. It was my husband's first time on a cruise and he enjoyed the experience with the exception with the quality of the food in the dining room and the noise in the stateroom.

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.

Don't miss the open dining area behind the Lido. It's one of our favorite spots on the ship.
