Our Cabin Attendant was very pleasant and kept our room clean. However, there was a foul odor of must and cigarettes that would hit you as soon as you entered the room. The towels and linen were clean but the cloth shower curtain was torn and reeked of a very offensive wet mop smell).

E202

Our cabin was very roomy even for four people. The steward kept our room very clean and always provided towel art. We heard no noise and enjoyed our balcony. It was nice to have a back staircase to go up to the Lido deck. It was very convenient to be on the floor that embarks and disembarks.

Tiny bathroom. Within earshot of one of the lounges so you can hear the music from 9pm - 11pm every night.  Read entire member review.
E33
Very quiet, very dark, closet and bathroom were fine. Bunk beds were also fine. One of the only positive things on this cruise.  Read entire member review.
E61
Small closet, three drawers, handicap doors, but that means that once you open the door it stays open for a minute or so, so make sure everyone is dressed before you open it! Hallway is noisy being right off the main stairway.  Read entire member review.

Our cabin was nice. For it to be as small as it was, it didn't feel small. It was always well cleaned and maintained.

Terrible by Hallzy69

Dirty is the nicest thing I can say. We could not see out our window and after calls to housekeeping were not addressed - I cleaned it myself. GROSS.

Walls are very thin....yeah...thin

Cabin was a nice enough layout, but smelled of smoke as the door did not close very well and the people in the next room enjoyed smoking tobacco and 'other' all day. UGH

Inside cabin, not as clean as first time cruise, dusty, musty smelling carpet, stains on wall, parts of ceiling had masking tape, water spots on glasses. Hallways had various odors in some areas.  Read entire member review.
M126

Cabin was great clean and bed was nice. Room steward was awesome. Shower had hot water and great pressure. This was a good thing because of neglect of deck crew my wife and I had to spend our 15year anniversary in our room. This cabin has a great balcony witch is semi private no one to your left and separated by a partition on the right. The only thing is all the gauges on the glass on the balcony.

M184 - standard Carnival oceanview with two twins on floor and one pull down twin. Large bathroom. Quiet.  Read entire member review.
M186

M186 was a ocean view with 2 twins and a 3rd pull down bunk. The cabin was meant for friends traveling where the cabin was not the important factor. It was plain and no frills.

Was bigger than I expected, but I was expecting to be crammed into a torpedo tube. There wasn't any extra room, but it didn't feel like a closet. The room was kept clean.  Read entire member review.

We had a balcony room for 4 people and it was very small. It was a king bed(2 singles pushed together) as well as 2 drop down bunks. When the bunks were down it was impossible to move around the room and virtually impossible to get to the balcony.  Read entire member review.

Cabins were ok. The window cabins windows were dirty before we left port. Balcony was fine. I think we overpaid for all the rooms. Gratuity is ridiculous.  Read entire member review.

Cabin M164 Main Deck, Outside Cabin with 1 pull down sleeper. Room reasonable size for 3 people. Closet space great, fit everything. Bathroom fair. Shower pressure AMAZING for a cruise ship. Window good size. Centrally located which basically means a long walk in either direction to the elevators that reach the Lido deck.  Read entire member review.

Awesome! by UGAfan13

I couldn't have been more satisfied with the incredible customer service, food, entertainment and overall experience on Carnival Sensation

R135

Room was very clean and well maintained. It was located on the Riviera deck, but no one felt the ship the entire cruise. We heard no noise the entire cruise, so it made it easy to get to sleep at night. Loved having the ocean view, it was a nice upgrade from the interior room I'm use to staying in. Only problem was the AC unit was not turned up high enough, so my friends had trouble sleeping at night because it was a bit too hot for them. I personally thought it was fine, but that's just me.

R187

We enjoyed our cabin, it must have been close to the engines because there was a hum when we were moving, but it wasn't enough to keep us up, it just reminded us that we were on a ship. I definitely enjoyed our window, which was just two stories above the water line so we had a nice low view of the ocean at all times. It was easy to pop outside our room and catch the elevator directly up to the Lido lounge where the buffet was.

R204

Room was made into twin beds. There were multiple wardrobe closets. Since I was traveling with a friend we opened the doors to the wardrobe to make a dressing area with privacy.... Hand luggage could fit under the bed. Bathroom was comfortable. The window was nice to have in the morning, but we didn't stay in the room long enough to even care. Take a few hangers. Beds were comfy and the linen was very nice.

SENSATIONAL!!!!!!!! by sassyteacher
Spacious for an ocean view cabin-185sq ft. Nice sized bathroom, shower only. Relatively quiet. However, this cabin is only a few cabins down from the elevators, so traffic is heavy. Could not hear noises from the next door cabins, but could hear hallway noise and cabin doors closing from across the hallway. Closet space was sufficient. We would book this room again.  Read entire member review.
R86

We had an interior cabin with two bunk beds and a crib. While I love oceanview and balcony rooms, Carnival's interior rooms are insanely comfortable cocoons that completely seal out light, sound, and stress. That being said, it was really cramped with the five of us and our luggage. Each day's showers and clothing changes were triumphs of logistic and puzzle-solving skills. However, the crew did a fantastic job with the space and our nightly movie nights before bedtime with ice cream cones in hand made some of my favorite family vacation memories yet.

Hallway too noisy. When beds are combined one individual will need to crawl over the other or exit from foot of bed.  Read entire member review.

Not the greatest, but ok by CruisingCher
For a suite it was pretty small but then again it is a smaller ship than the other times I have sailed w/ Carnival.  Read entire member review.

Good storage for belongings. Comfortable beds. Easy access to buffet restaurant. Safety bar for the uppers insufficient.  Read entire member review.

The Cabins are pretty small, but you don't spend much time in them any way...They keep them very clean and neat every time you leave your room  Read entire member review.
U2
U2 is not a good cabin for non-smokers. The air conditioner pulls smoke in from one of the decks & you cannot stop it. There is nothing they can do, it is the way the system was built.  Read entire member review.

Enjoyed our cruise... by yanksgirlinfl
The view from our cabin was amazing! The cabin was super clean! With the cabin being at the back of the ship, you did not have alot of traffic in the hallway, and did not hear alot of noise coming from the hallways and it made it very peaceful!  Read entire member review.
U61

The cabin was in a great spot in the middle of the ship, right off of the elevators. Only complaint was the water in the sink was way too hot!!! Didn't get cold at all. I complained about it but it wasn't fixed by the time we got off of the ship.

Short and Sweet by Relayer

We were in cabin V-27, obstructed view Jr. suite. Just like a regular balcony cabin on most other newer ships. Blacony smaller and the obstructed view was over a small work boat and 1/2 of a regular life boat. Still nice views and very adequate, Nicely furnished and well maintained by a very attenttive steward. Very quite part of the ship forward

Sensation OK by Kylesmic

Veranda suite was comfortable. Travelled with husband and 13 year old daughter. The view was spectacular. VIP check-in was amazingly fast and stress free.

V34
Jr suite was good. Technically an obstructed view, but it wasn't bad. It was only $20 more per persn than the balcony, so it was a good deal, but the balcony was smaller than the normal balcony. I wouldn't pay a large difference for the upgrade, but we enjoyed the room.  Read entire member review.

Tight quarters. We heard the crew working on the other side of the wall. Dark, gloomy. My daughter threw up everywhere. Housekeeping took 2.5 hours to clean it up.

v15

We paid for a junior suite and I'm so glad we did. I wouldn't want to stay in a room any smaller. My husband smokes and it was very convenient for him to have the balcony. I should have paid more attention to the direction the boat was going in order to take advantage of the sunrises and sunsets. The bed was fantastic and I've never slept better. The room was in a great location in regards to the rest of the ship, everything was easy to get to. Our room steward was amazing and he took extra time to make our room even more wonderful, We enjoyed this room

Beautiful room, excellent view - our A/C was broken, so we were not happy overall. If the A/C was working would give 5 stars.

Great Quick Getaway by shawnc5000

We stayed in a Junior Suite on the Verandah deck and the balcony had a slightly obstructed view. The room was clean, cool, quiet, and roomy. The bathroom was slightly cramped and didn't have enough lighting. Only two small lights over the sink were installed which meant your shower was always dark. The quality of the water was also interesting at some times it would have a slightly brownish hue to it. Our cabin was V21 forward which meant a slight walk to the aft to use serenity or to eat at the buffet. The balcony was smaller than those on Liberty and Freedom but it still had room to enjoy the view and forget about your troubles. A small tv is mounted on the wall and a few channels were available but we weren't on the cruise to watch TV so not a problem.
