Sail Date: Aug 2019
Cabin: Balcony

We booked a couple months in advanced but were still able to get a balcony room. The room was still very tiny. We were on the 5th floor and out floor smelled moldy. There were holes in our curtains and the deck was very dirty. Our room was M245. The cruise director deon was great. There were alot of activities. The food at dinner was great. The breakfast buffet was poor. Half Moon Cay, was a joke! I could of stayed on the ship and had a better day. There is literally nothing on the island. Hopefully carnival does some updates in the future. They were doing maintenance on the ship the whole time of the cruise which was VERY LOUD and unpleasant. The ship gave us an onboard credit for the spa but didn't do us any good being that we dont go to the spa. I would never cruise on sensation again! Most likely will never cruise with carnival again

Cabin Review


Cabin 8D

Our room was very small. Just as small as interior rooms although we paid 3x the amout. It was a balcony room. Balcony was very dirty. Even damaged some of my clothes i put out to dry. We could not use the balcony the last day of the cruise due to maintenance

Port Reviews

Half Moon Cay

Very boring island. Although owned by carnival our drink package was not valid on the island. What a rip off. Literally nothing to do or see on the island. The beach is gorgeous. I hope they make some major renovations.
