Review summary

From the curb the Sensation is not the nicest of the Carnival ships we've been on but once on the Cruise Director (Deon) made everything fun! Seems like there were not as many activities but the ones they had were good! Blue iguana is a great place to eat (tacos and burritos) and is very popular but the hours are limited and the staff is pushy and not friendly. I saw a staff member Reggie be very rude to a cruiser while explaining they were closing. I know its not an easy job (closing the line) but never a reason to be rude! Guy's Burgers EXCELLENT food and customer service! Ship could use some TLC and the pool was ALWAYS full but overall a good trip!

Margaritaville tried to charge us to use their tiny beach even as patrons of the restaurant. Don't do it!
