We have been on 1/2 of Carnival's fleet, from Paradise to Breeze, all shapes and sizes. This ship is awkward. The option to retract the roof ruins the 11th floor view. You can't see the Lido pool area due to the drive mechanism. Random ... Read more

I'm sure the cruise business is a tough one, and they need to make a buck where they can, but this ship is in need of a month or two in drydock to deal with some issues. #1 on my list would be air quality. Everyone I talked to was ... Read more

Chose Carnival because we were taking our 2 grandkids ages 6 and 9. I made them go to kids camp. Then we had a hard time getting them to do anything else. They LOVED it. And they had told me that they were not going to go to camp. The ... Read more

We chose this cruise because it was a new ship and we used to love carnival. We have not been on a cruise for several years because we built a cabin in the mountains and were spending our vacations there for a while. We remembered how we ... Read more

Like everything else, this is a hit or miss for some folks. PRO: This is an action packed cruise. There is plenty to do between relax and action driven. The sky bike is awesome and definitely a try. However, this cruise is more geared ... Read more

I went on this cruise with my best friend. It was my first time "cruising". The embarkation and disembarkation were disasters. It was very unorganized. There should of been staff or signs on each floor level giving directions or ... Read more

So the main takeaway from my review is simply this: Vacations are what you make it. I read a lot of reviews about the Sensation before going on this cruise and I was skeptical. But I have now realized that some people just can't be ... Read more

We have been on 7 Carnival cruises and this is the first I would not give an excellent rating for. We were scheduled for an early check in after arriving in Miami at 8:00 am. They were very late (after 12) getting everyone off the ship so ... Read more
