terrific first cruise

Sail Date: March 22, 2012

Reviewed: 5 years ago

Traveled As: Singles/Friends

Room Type: Oceanview

The Sensation is one of Carnivals older and smaller ships, but was surprised at all the options for dining, and being treated like royalty. The staff was some of the nicest people we have ever met.

Pros: friendliness and effiency of staff.

Cons: geared more toward the younger crowd.

Recommends Carnival Sensation? Yes!

Food and Dining
Liked the option of open dining, not having a specific time to be at dinner. Was not really impressed with the food on the buffet on the last night. Food was cold, but all other food was excellent.
Ship Quality
Easy access to everything and beautiful, well kept ship. Restrooms were always clean and supplied with necessities.
Cabin / Stateroom
Room was larger than I expected for a ship. Always clean.
Service and Staff
Staff alwayss went above and beyond. They even called us by name after waiting on us for a while. You could tell they loved their jobs and the people.
Only wish there had been more than one pool. It was extremely crowded on our fun day at sea. Maybe an adult only pool.
