Has anyone heard any news about the 3 ships that FEMA has been using for the hurricane relief efforts? We are booked on the Holiday in May and I wanted to make sure they didn't extend the time frame. Originally, they are all supposed to come back into service sometime in March after being refurbished. Wondering if that date has changed?

Based on all information from Carnival the Holiday refurbishment is still scheduled as planned and will begin her regular sailings in March.

cruiser1962,

I am quite envious of you, getting to cruise on the Holiday right after she gets a much-needed refurbishment! I love the Holiday.

Hope the Holiday is ready. We were bumped off the Sensation. Have re-booked on the Holiday for June (closer to home)

I want to know about the Sensation as I will be on this ship May 13. I understand it was also refurbished because of use during Katrina and my thought is "it should look new" Has anyone seen it since the refurbishment and do they use the exact same decor as before?

I do not believe the Sensation has been refurbished yet. It will be after the FEMA contract.. When a ship is refurbished they will go through and replace carpets, bedding, replace some furniture, paint. The Sensation is getting a lot of new features. They are adding 9 hole mini golf, expanding the spa, redoing the Camp Carnival. They are adding a patisserie, new photo gallery, art gallery, suites are being completely remodeled,the internet cafe will be relocated, and the Lido deck stage will be relocated to a covered area.
