I think cruise ships have come a long way since this first sailed. This ship is basically your idea of a cheap Las Vegas hotel and casino, only it is floating on water.

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
What made the food good was the Dining Room service. The buffets got old quickly. Although I must say that the specialty buffets were great, such as the Mexican or Mongolian buffet that was offered on particular days.


3 out of 5
Not too much appealed to us.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Every seemed very helpful.

Ship Quality

3 out of 5
Clean; sometimes confusing to get around; not enough places to lounge (especially someplace quiet)

Cabin / Stateroom

3 out of 5
I barely give this an average because twice our room needed to be 'ozoned' because of the cigarette smoke smell and the noise that can be heard from other rooms and especially the hallway. Other than that it was very clean.

Pros: the inexpensive price

Cons: too many party people

Recommends Carnival Sensation? No.
