Awful from the first moment!

Carnival Sensation Cruise Review to Caribbean - Bahamas

Overall Rating:

1 out of 5
Sail Date: August 01, 2010
Ship: Carnival Sensation
Cabin Type: Balcony
Traveled As: Large Group
Reviewed: 7 years ago

This ship is very dated and depressing. The elevators and state rooms had a terrible urine odor. I have sailed on other cruiselines before and think they are MUCH better.

Food and Dining

1 out of 5
The food in the dining room is pretty good. But you'll wait forever on line at the buffet and the selection is not the greatest. The ambiance is worn and dated.

Service and Staff

3 out of 5
The staff was friendly and accommodating.

Ship Quality

1 out of 5
The ship is not too big. The condition of the public areas need a lot of renovations... chipped paint, stained carpeting, leaks, odors, etc. This is not so much due to cleanliness as to the ship is in dire need of a total overhaul and complete renovations.

Cabin / Stateroom

1 out of 5
The stateroom is what you'd expect on a cruise. I've seen nicer ones, but the size is comparable. We spotted some mold in the shower stall.

Pros: The staff was very nice and tried their best
