First time Cruiser on Carnival

Sail Date: August 19, 2010

Reviewed: 6 years ago

Traveled As: Family w/young children

Room Type: Oceanview

While the Sensation is quite older in comparison to many ships, I didn't mind the decor. The staterooms were lovely and the waterpark was awesome. The pool and hottubs were always quite busy, but we enjoyed the water park deck anyways.

Pros: Our stateroom was lovely. We had the oceanview stateroom with the extra twin bunks and a rollaway. Very spacious for even five of us.

Cons: We found the serv ice could have been better. Very pushy with selling drinks and many tables left messy for quite sometime.

Recommends Carnival Sensation? Yes!

Ship Quality
Food and Dining
A bit disappointed in the food. Expected much more. The dining room food was good but the buffet and other food places were average cafeteria type food.
Service and Staff
Kinda expected more....dining room waiter awesome. Room steward great , but funny enough the guest service staff were somewhat miserable and aloof.
Enjoyed the 80's type show and also the adult comedy...both were very good.
Cabin / Stateroom
Very nice stateroom. Spacious, clean, big oceanview window.
Children's Programs
Did a great job offering a variety of activities for all ages.
Nassau, Bahamas
Loved the locals...loved the water....loved the Stingray adventure at Blackbeard's Cay (book ourself since Carnival does not offer it as a shore excursion). Well worth it....and very reasonable in price.
Don't Miss: Blackbeard's Cay Stingray adventure.
