 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.
