Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

Getting to the port was easy just follow the signs from the beach line express way. Security direct you to drop off your luggage and then park your car that was easy. Then you get in line behind 100 people but it only takes 10 minutes to check in the line moves very fast. Our balcony cabin m 106 was clean, updated, room enough for 2 and everything worked. The sea's for our October 6 cruise were very rough so most people just stayed in their cabin . There were no lines to get the food but the food was yuck. The only pool is small and hold only about 15 people. The sign on the slides said closed due to high winds . You could only hear the announcements from the public areas not from your cabin .The crew was very unfriendly and would wait on you when they wanted to. The drink order takers around the pool area were almost to atentative . The public restrooms were very nasty but I guess that's because of the class of people cruising. The bahamas is a very scary place. . We took a taxi to atlantis. Bring lots of money if you go to atlantis. Getting around the ship is a little confusing as some elevators only go to certain floors . There really is not much to do on the ship except eat and drink. The ride home was very rough we were getting wet on our balcony . I was told that some of the crew were calling in sea sick. Housekeeping was very efficient . Everytime we return to our cabin it has been cleaned . Disembarking the ship was done zone by zone and went very smooth . We will not be repeating this trip.

Pros: Drinks

Cons: weather

Recommends Carnival Sensation? No.

Food and Dining
all I can say about the is YUCK1
Ship Quality
Ship should carry 1,000 but it carries 2,000. small ship. some Elevators do not go to all floors. Hard to find the dining rooms.
Service and Staff
I give it average only because the housekeeping was excellent , but the rest of the crew unfreindly and to busy talking to each other.
It was average for a cruise entertainment.
Cabin / Stateroom
Balcony cabin m-106 is very nice and roomy for 2 people. But the over head bunk makes sleepling uncomfortable. So it is a good cabin for 3 but if you are only 2 people then take a different cabin.
