5 Night Eastern Caribbean (Miami Roundtrip)
Sail Date: August 29, 2016
Ship: Carnival Sensation
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Cabin Number: R116
Traveled As: Couple

Food was terrible, the only time food was decent was in the dining rooms, and even then, it was terrible. The ship was understaffed I think. The bars and dining rooms were so busy it took forever to get service. 


The ship needs to be improved, a lot of it is weathered and worn. 


The best part was the comedy shows. 


Beverages were very weak and watered down. 


We received a credit on one excursion because it didn't even do half of what the brochure said and the other one we booked was cancelled a half hour before we were supposed to leave and it was too late to get on another one!!!

our stateroom was decent and the service was good

Ship Tip

bring a power strip as there is only 1 plug in the room.
Bring a backpack or bag to use while getting off the ship.
Bring cash to use on the islands.
