 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.

    The Sensation should be sunk. It is a floating no tell motel. The entire ship is dirty and beat up. I could go on about how bad everything on the ship is but I will only say choose more

    It was the cruise from hell. It started with a 10hr wait to get on board because of safety issues. Some of the elevators didn't work and people got trapped in them. The water in the more
