Carnival Sensation Cabins

Cabin-wise, Carnival keeps it simple. The vast majority of accommodations are insides (upper/lower bed or two-twin setup, both 185 square feet) or outsides (porthole or picture window, both 185 square feet). Carnival Sensation also has a number of standard balcony cabins (185 square feet with 35-square-foot balcony), which were added during the January 2009 refurb. A handful of "extended balcony cabins," also added during the dry-dock, feature 55 square feet of verandah space.

Apart from the bunk-bed-style insides, most cabins have twin beds, which can be combined into an extremely comfortable king-size bed. The Carnival Comfort Bed, a sleep system with delightful pillows and a duvet, makes sleeping aboard the ship a treat. Lighting is good -- each bed has its own light -- and triples and quads nicely accommodate the needs of three or four people traveling together. These cabins go quickly -- especially over school holiday periods -- so book early.

All cabins feature a pair of bathrobes, flat-screen TV and safe. Closet and drawer space is standard and adequate -- especially when casual wear is the order of the day. Standard cabins do not have hair dryers in the cabins, but passengers can ask the room steward for one. Shampoo and body wash can be found in bottles affixed to the shower wall, and a grab-bag of sample size products is provided in each cabin.

Cruisers looking for a little more space should opt for a Junior Suite (220 square feet with 30-square-foot balcony), Grand Suite (330 square feet with 70-square-foot balcony) or Grand Suite with extended balcony (330 square feet with 115-square-foot balcony). Grand Suites feature whirlpol tubs. All suite passengers get VIP check-in.

Sensation has 20 cabins for passengers with disabilities.

We love the balcony in aft section as they are usually quiet. Balcony railings looked rusty and the glass was not clean. We miss the hairdryers and refrigerators but this is a small older ship. Reasonably clean--not spic and span clean, and the ... Read more
