We had five in our room and there was plenty of space for us.

I missed the opportunity to souvenior shop, since we had a scheduled excursion at 1pm and then needed to get back to the boat for our formal early dinner. By the time we came back off the boat, all the port shops were closed.
Don't Miss: Snorkeling

Pros: the scheduled plans for the kids

Cons: the port shops open times - I wish I knew they would close early - I wouldn't have gone back to the boat for early dinner before doing a little shopping

Recommends Carnival Sensation? Yes!
