The staff was wonderful, always very helpful. The room was always clean when returning for the evening. Everything seemed well organized from meals to off shore excursions.

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
Multpile dining options. Food at the buffet was pretty standard, but well prepared. Dining room meals were good. The desserts were fabulous!


3 out of 5
Didn't find too many onboard activities I would want to participate in. Not really a karaoke, casino or "Hairest Man" contest person. I spent most of my time on the sun deck with a book (but's that's what I had planned from the beginning). The spa was nice, if a bit overpriced.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Staff is very curteous, prompt and available. Could always find someone if we needed something.

Ship Quality

3 out of 5
Very clean, easy to move around. Wish the pool was larger.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Room was bigger than I thought it would be (standard window room with two double beds). Room staff was exceptional! Beds were more comfortable than I expected. Wish the window had opened, even if just a couple inches.

Pros: Not overcrowded, friendly staff

Cons: Not a good range of adult onbaord activities

Recommends Carnival Sensation? Yes!
