Good experience

Sail Date: December 01, 2012

Reviewed: 4 years ago

Traveled As: Family (older children)

Room Type: Balcony

Food was good in the buffet but formal dining menu was limited. Activities on different locations were difficult to find. Two ends of the ship with activities were segregated with corridors which were a bit difficult to find. Last formal dining cure was not as friendly as it was before which was disappointing. In one of the rooms we had was missing complimentary strawberry chocolates and got it after several reminders to the guest service. Guest service was not aware of the rebate. Guest service staff was not smiling. Staff in the buffet and housekeeping was very friendly. I had preregistered for the circle and camp carnival clubs but could not find the easy way to get the schedules.....service desk was not helpful in this regard.

Pros: Food and water activities

Cons: Guest Services Desk staff was not smiling

Recommends Carnival Sensation? No.

Ship Quality
Difficult to find the activity areas.
Food and Dining
Food in buffet was much better than in formal dining. In the first day returned the food which was served as it was not warm.
Cabin / Stateroom
Wish if it was equipped with hair dryer and iron.
Service and Staff
Guest service staff should serve with smile. They were very serious and as said had little info about the bookings.
Children's Programs
As mentioned we could not find help to get into our pre-registered circle and camp carnival clubs.
