Fun Get-together Cruise by tsonal

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Large Group

Overall decent cruise but was an underwhelming experience. We did a get together cruise with a big group and was excited about spending holidays with our friends. The service was below average. We didn't find the crew helpful to respond to any of our questions, where to find a certain activity or location. The room was not as clean as expected. Food was ok, special kudos to Chef Gireesh and Chef Laxman we had very good Indian food throughout our cruise stay. The kids club timings were not the most convenient and staff didn't seem to be happy about doing their job. Generally there was a lack of staff throughout the ship and navigating the ship was a pain.

Over all the cruise was awesome. by klcaso

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Singles/Friends

Over all we had a great experience. We laughed constantly. The only down side to this cruise is that it is advertised as a 3 pool ship. It is not. It has an area that is for children (splash center, adult area that only has 2 small hot tubs and then one small pool with 2 small hot tubs. The hot tubs were always full of people that never got out. Personally I like to swim so I would prefer a larger ship with an adult only pool as well as a regular pool.

Fun cruise to Dominican Republic and Grand Turk by Northeaster

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Large Group

We had a small group of older (age 60) adults - 3 couples, no children. We all had a wonderful time, and enjoyed the shore excursions at Amber Cove and Grand Turk. You'll want an excursion, especially at Amber Cove, because there isn't much to do at the port.

i had the best time of my life, it was an unforgettable experience and i will definitely do it again, only regrets was that i forgot to get my pictures that where professionally done on the ship, i wish there was a site to go to, so one can reclaim them after the cruise

Overall very good cruise. Hear so many good things about Dominican - but Amber Cove is not the way to see Dominican Republic. Boat is pretty small and outdated - pool was very disappointing. Staff on Sensation are AWESOME!! Fun Squad is guaranteed good time!

Great Christmas Excursion by Ariadne93

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

This was our first cruise. I had read mixed reviews of the ship because of its age, but I was very impressed. I was also worried that it would be too family oriented, as our children are grown. But the ship was well designed to separate family activity and include adult activity as well.

Below Average and really not worth the money by NPP

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Family (older children)

Very disappointed with Carnival - poor food/lackluster and boring entertainment. Terrible and mismanaged on shore excursions. Not worth your money.

Waste of Money by sjp409

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

The staff was amazing and very courteous but I would advise skipping the cruise and simply going to Jamaica as this was the highlight of the cruise and would lessen the chances of getting sea sick

First cruise on carnival sensation by RelaxB

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

The cruise was good, being that we were first timers. The ship itself was ok, it was definitely a smaller ship and not a lot of food options. Overall we had a blast in each port

Great Cruise....... by janeenbak

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Singles/Friends

I loved the entertainment, the customer service, and the entire staff. the only thing I didn't like was the comedian Bill Flaggerstaff (I think that's his last name) and the style of the boat. Everything else was excellent.
