Review summary

Another fantastic cruise :)  We enjoy the older ships--they feel relaxing and comfortable, just like home.

Crew was awesome as always.  These folks bend over backwards to make us happy, and we appreciate all they do.  There was a call for the emergency response team to the crew quarters on our first morning at sea.  When we got home, we learned that a maintenance worker had a heart attack and passed away. There were somber faces and things were a little disorganized early in the morning, but by afternoon crew was cheerful and friendly as always.  Can you imagine having to do that at your workplace?  These folks are amazing.

Food was good, service was awesome,  The only thing sorely lacking was shows at night.  There were only a couple of shows and they were at later times, so we didn't attend.  There weren't many comedy shows, and again they were all later, so none for us.  Karaoke was the order of the day.  I enjoy going once, maybe twice, but then the divas and wannabes take over and it's not fun for us to watch anymore.

Would we sail on the Sensation again?  In a heartbeat.  Next time, we will take a game or some cards and have fun and maybe make new friends.  Sometimes it's good for us to have to entertain ourselves

It's an old ship with dated décor, but that's what makes her charming

Comfy, clean and very quiet.

Ship tip

Don't miss the open dining area behind the Lido. It's one of our favorite spots on the ship.
