Review summary

I did not like that we were not able to dock at Grand Turk port! We witnessed Disney cruise ship at the port at same time Carnival Sensation was to dock!  Carnival needs to offer compensation of some form when passengers don't get what they pay for! Food was ok.  Seemed to be a trip for tweens.  Not a lot to do for adults.  Waiters were awesome!! Drink packages were not offered after 2nd day of trip!  Shower was moldy! Rooms too cold!

Mold in the shower!! Did not like the extra beds on top of my head where we slept in the main bed!

Ship tip

Bring clothes that you don't need to iron. You need to bring a hair dryer. Get a drink package prior to cruise or at least first day of cruise. Set limits on spending with guest services for you and your guests/family.
