Ship: Carnival Sensation
Cabin Type: Balcony
Cabin Number: U209

Our trip was marvelous. it was our first trip. it was planned late so we would do a few things differently next time. The staff was great and the cruise was smooth sailing. it did not get windy or shaky until the last day. The Carnival itself could take time to acknowledge some accommodations for their guest. if they run late it cost us not them. And boarding passes can't be printed before boarding so we should at least have access to that service alone.

On or first night in the dining room our waiter told us that the bottled water was our only option and immediately after we reluctantly agreed to by it another water filled our glassed with FREE water.

Service and Staff

It was awesome. But we ordered our own anniversary cake on board the ship it was not delivered and we had to leave without ever getting it. Our inability to print our boarding passes was disturbing as we spent over 50% of our anniversary day trying to accomplish that task. it drained us and put a hamper on the end of our trip (Best Part)

Cabin / Stateroom

I am very glad we got the balcony the view was breathtaking and watching everything from our bed was great. Overall the cabin was basic the boat fun distracted the cabin stay. Please detail the carpet between the patio door and the bed. The patio chairs were concerning I found them grimy but again not feeling closed in was comforting.

Ship Tip

Bring a back up water proof camera for photos

Watch your receipts there was $30.00 dollar surcharges on my receipts. My orders did not arrive to the boat before my departure time.
