Carnival Sensation is an old ship which looks like Las Vegas in the 80s, just floating on the Atlantic. If you want to get away for three days and drink paying at least 7.50 per glass, eat awful food, and dont mind loud people and a lot of second hand smoking, this is the cruise to go. The crew is nice, they clean the rooms all the time, likely to keep us from smelling that stale stench that despite their efforts is still there. There is one tiny pool, there are no specialty restaurants, if you dont gamble there is nothing to do just be crammed with mostly obese, smelling of tobacco, tattooed and very loud people.
Nassau was nice. We took the historic trip and pirates museum which was instructive. There is a very nice restaurant called Cafe Matisse where we enjoyed a pleasant dinner. Everything else was bad. I will never go with Carnival again.
Ship Quality
old, stale, ugly decoration, nothing to do

food was awful, soup was served cold, the fish was stale, desert was sweat and mediocre at best, they displayed vegetables for decoration but all they served was junk food worse than McDonalds
