Please note that last month we did two short west coast cruises on sister ships--the Imagination and the Inspiration. Identical ships, in many ways. 4 day itineraries, too Here's how the Sensation compares with the above two ships a month later:


Clean and nice: not so much; worn; sewer smells in the hallways--often; water stopped working on part of the ship


Buffet: Same food as other 2 ships, but very good; good job here.


Dining: Tasteless and drab;Cannot compare with the EXCELLENCE of the Imagination or Inspiration.


Cabin: Fine, but some smells emerged on one day


Service: Outstanding service, people, staff. 


Entertainment: Better entertainment here than on the other ships, actually.


I am being very fair. Still, I would avoid this ship in the future, because the food experience in the dining room is so comparatively weak.
