Review summary

We have been on Sensation 2 times now it needs serious work or to be put to pasture. The crew does excellent work to try and make it worth while.

Cabin / Stateroom

2 out of 5
The main cabin lights had some kind of short turning on and off by themselves. My wife and I had an ongoing joke that we were in room 666(6 deck #66) at times the room smelled horrible as well. Steward was poor to fair at best I think we saw him 2 times in 5 days

Ship tip

This ship does not have stabilizers if you get queezy easily do not sail on her.

We rented the poolside cabana it was great food was reasonable priced plus it came with drinks and snacks. the zipline was ok but it slams at the end if u have back or neck issues be prepared for soreness. we all enjoyed the water-slides and pool area.

Grand Turk Island

4 out of 5
We rented a golf cart from Boogie $80 not bad at all went to lighthouse fed donkeys all over the island wasn't alot going on apparenty during the week days they don't do alot on the island unless I just couldn't find things. Had lunch at Margaritaville (don't eat here seriously over priced and they charge a 15% gratuity that goes into there pocket not your server) enjoyed the beach then back to ship.
