Stick to the newer ships.
Carnival Sensation Cruise Review to Caribbean - Bahamas
Review SummaryThis ship is in desperate need of a complete overhall as well as redecoration. Nowhere near as nice as the newer ships like Victory/Freedom/Conquest. Food at the buffets was horrible in the afternoon and dinnertime. Breakfast buffet was not bad. Dinner in the formal dining rooms was good, not as good as some other cruises but it still was good.

Pros: Promenade deck had some good things to offer.
Cons: Different funky smells in almost every room and hallway. Smelled musty and gross.
