Ship felt clean, but slightly aged.

Recommends Carnival Sensation? Yes!

Ship Quality
Ship felt small\, but never had felt it was over crowded. Public areas are clean\, and the entire ship has a purple theme which is not as bad as it sounds.
Food and Dining
Food was excellent\, dining times are available for you to choose. The ambiance is formal one night\, and casual the rest. The menu is different and its always exciting.
Cabin / Stateroom
We had a balcony room\, and I really recommend it. Its really nice waking up to the ocean\, and just sitting out there at night. The room was small\, but adequate for 2. The worst part of the room was the twin beds that made up our large. Eventually the twin beds would separate and one of us would fall in the crack!! This is the only reason the stateroom didn't get a perfect score from me\, and only a good.
Service and Staff
I simply can not say enough about the staff. They will go above and beyond their duty to make sure guest are happy. For them to memorize our names\, and address us by our first names was truly impressive.
Entertainment on the ship is good. However I did find some of it boring\, and not worth the effort to go to. Instead we would find empty areas on the ship to fall asleep in.
