Ship: Carnival Sensation

Traveled As: Couple

This 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.

Buffets were horrible. Main dining room scores a good 7/8 out of 10. Not perfect but still very good overall main dining experiance.

Ship Quality

1 out of 5
Very confusing layout of the ship. Been on larger ships and could always get from point A to B easily. Not on this ship, lot of dead-ends and confusion.

Cabin / Stateroom

3 out of 5
Very old looking and smelling. Had a oceanview room. Windows from day one were grossly dirty and cloudy.

Pros: Promenade deck had some good things to offer.

Cons: Different funky smells in almost every room and hallway. Smelled musty and gross.

Recommends Carnival Sensation? No.
