Overall, we had a very nice family vacation with many memories to keep with us. Though you can't expect for everything to be perfect, it would be nice to more variety and selections in onboard activities and entertainment that families can enjoy.

Caribbean cruise

Verified Review

The trip itself was good,it's always great to get away. I was dissatisfied with some things on the ship. The ship is older compared to other ships. I love Carnival but I will never cruise on The Sensation again.

A great cruise

Had a great time. Lots to do at port and on the ship. We actually missed a few things, there was so much going on! And they Re making me write at least 150 characters in this field, which is stupid. I do,t have that much to say but I'm hoping this puts me over the minimum so I can stop staring at this page over and over and over.

Overall the cruise was enjoyable and my kids had a great time. The staff was friendly and the other travelers were friendly and enjoyable as well. The food in the dinning room was great. Just wish there was a basketball court for the boys!

Interesting Cruise Experience

The entire experience was a good one. It was my husband's first time on a cruise and he enjoyed the experience with the exception with the quality of the food in the dining room and the noise in the stateroom.

Had a great time but do wish the ship was bigger. I also don't think I'd book another trip that went to Half Moon Cay. I'd rather go to a port where I could do free things on my own.

My trip on the Carnival Sensation

Verified Review

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Family (older children)
I had an awesome time as this was my first cruise and I can not wait to book the next !!!! The cabin could have been cleaned each day a little better but overall it was great. I also did not like that they just charge what they want on your card for gratuity but that was handled pretty quickly.

Overall the cruise was very nice and relaxing. The buffet food could have been better. The activites were just enough to keep you entertain. The cruise director was awesome. The staff was pleasant. The staterooms were clean.

Very poor experience

Verified Review

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple
The boat was old and honestly not worth the money spent. Carnival's product from my experience is absolutely sub-par. The food was a couple of steps above a high school cafeteria. The entertainment was basically unenjoyable, the only exception was the comedy show with the comic CJ (forgot his last name). The boat had one extremely small pool and three hot tubs for approximately 2500 people, and they closed it on our last day at sea when we came back from Nassau. Carnival should be ashamed of putting this product on the market. The de-embarkation process was extremely unorganized. Carnival sells wifi that I purchased, but did not work once on the ship. When I brought this up, I was told sometimes the wifi cuts in and out. It cut out the whole trip, could not get emails or websites until I hit a port and went on a cell carrier. I will say that 98 percent of the staff tried hard to make the best of what they had to work with, but it was impossible thanks to Carnival's product. The room stewarts were very good. The biggest disappointments were the food and entertainment, completely unacceptable!!

My first cruise and I plan to do this every year if I can but never a summer cruise unless in the future I travel with younger members of my family. I dearly wished I had taken my grown children on cruise when they were young.

Wonderful Getaway

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Singles/Friends
The cruise was great overall. I would suggest bringing extra money for the art auctions as well. A lot of nice art that is often forgot about when vacationing. My husband and I did purchase some great works. I would suggest getting off at each port. There is something to do at each one and the private island is nothing but GREATNESS!!!
