Number of Cruises: 1
Cruise Line: Carnival
Ship: Carnival Sensation
Sailing Date: May 14th, 2006
First let me start by saying I read the reviews
prior to our cruise, and was very concerned. however, what I read was not true.
The ship was very clean, staff friendly, no sewer smell,
no dirty dishes. I found this cruise to be very nice for our first.
I think some of the food could be improved, and a
better variety for the midnight meal, overall, this cruise was very pleasant,
and i would recommend it for anyone just wanting to get away for a few days,
time went by to fast but we had a great trip, there was 11 in our party.
As far as the pictures i think they should take more time, or set up backgrounds where there will not be other people in your picture. And also they should make different sizes available, without having to buy the 8x10 in order to get other sizes of prints.
Disembarkment should be slower, we had our 85 yr old mother in our group, and it is just to fast paced and rushing for older people. I think the ship should allow at least till noon to get the people off of the ship. We were off by 9:30.
Over all i would recommend carnival, however, next
time, i prefer to take at least a 5 day or longer, the 4 day went by so fast.,
and I would like to try a larger ship. So if you have a cruise planned on the
sensation which was switched from fasination, don't worry, just have fun!
The cabins was very clean.
The formal dinners were ok, however, it took up a lot of time, at least 2 hrs., probably would not go to all of them on next cruise.
We sailed out on May 14, 2006!
