Enjoyable Cruise

Sail Date: November 04, 2012

Reviewed: 4 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Inside

While this ship did not offer some of the amenities of the newer ships it was well cared for with plenty of space in the rooms, on deck and in the dining rooms. The staff was friendly and always helpful. Our dining room staff was excellent, even remembering all of our names as was our cabin steward. Our room was always well cared for and ice kept supplied in the ice bucket. Greatly enjoyed the towel animal making class and wish it would have gone longer. Would not hesitate to do another cruise on the Sensation.

Pros: It was a nice casual atmosphere with guests of all ages. There were many groups of people but I did not notice any of them being rowdy or inappropriate on the ship. The main show with the dancers/singers was excellent. Amazing number of costume changes during the show.

Cons: I would have liked to see some variety in activities available for the older crowd besides gambling and drinking.

Recommends Carnival Sensation? Yes!

Ship Quality
Food and Dining
Some meals in the dining room were excellent while others were only average. The buffet areas were average.
Cabin / Stateroom
Good size room for a standard room with plenty of storage space and a good supply of hangers in the closets. Good lighting throughout the cabin and good size shower area.
Service and Staff
Would have liked more variety in the different bar areas. Seemed like there was a lot of Karaoke in the bars and we would have prefered other types of entertainment.
