Sail Date: July 31, 2014

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Inside

I do not recommend the Carnival Sensation. This is not the first time I have been on this ship and came back because of how much we enjoyed our last trip, however some low lites were: The room was never fully cleaned. There was garbage from the previous guest in our closet along with body hair. Dining in the Fantasy Dining room took at least and hour and forty-five minutes each night.  The shows have been the same for the last 4 years it seem and need to be modernized.  Our shower overflowed into the whole bathroom and I could not reach a room Seward so had to go looking for someone.  They now allow children in all the hot tubs so they take over them like their personal kiddie pools.  The dolphins experience was great, however the locals working there were not very friendly and lied to us about purchasing pictures so beware they do sell individual prints back on the boat (the shore excursion manager did take care of this for us). The best part was the comedy shows.  Great comedians, but other than that I don't think I would ever get on this ship again.

To make your trip better participate in some ship activities, but schedule so much you don't have time to relax
