 Carnival Sensation

The Carnival Sensation was the third ship in Carnival's Fantasy - class fleet. There are lots of new additions to this fun ship. Including a new nine hole miniature golf course, a new Teen Club, and a new Patisserie on the Promenade Deck to name a few. The ship's theme is The Senses. A cruise on this ship would not be complete without a visit to the Touch of Class piano bar.

    Great Cruise for the money. Carnival actually understands who is on board. Late 30s to 70s demographic. Royal Caribbean, which we have sailed on many times, is all about Black Culture, Reggae, more

    Carnival is raising prices on cruises and cutting back with food, activities, entertainment. The ship is old and the cabins need to be remodeled from front of ship to back. We were bored. more

    Carnival cruise lines have gone way down. They are cutting corners to save money. Took the five day cruise and they only had one evening show the whole trip. No other activities to enjoy. Old more

    Great cruise for the price. All the staff were friendly. The food was average and the sushi bar didn't exist. The deck, pool, water slide, mini golf and hot tubs were crowded with people just more

    This was my first cruise and it turned out to be the most disappointing vacation ever. My room was right below the kitchen galley and was incredibly loud all night. I was moved to an interior more
