The best thing about Sensation is the exceptional service. Waiters in the Ecstasy Dining Room were wonderful and the room stewards were amazing! Smaller ship than what we like- no specialty restaurants and we missed ...

Decent cruise for the money

This is currently my 4th cruise I have taken, and my 3rd with Carnival. The main reason I have booked carnival cruises is because their prices are around the best. That being said, this is NOT a 5 star cruise line. ...

Another great cruise on the Sensation.

Still a lot of construction going on with the new terminal and parking garage. I dropped off my wife and grandson and went to park the car. You pay for parking when you arrive now. Which is a good thing. It ...

To begin with, we had a great time. Embarkation and debarkation were a breeze with the VIP pass that came with our grand suite. My wife commented that this was worth the upgrade alone and I agreed. My girls ...
