  3. Carnival Sensation
This was my first cruise and after reading a lot of the reviews about the "Sensation" being a ship that was small and needed updating. I found it to be quite accommodating. The room was what I would consider large and had a very nice ocean view window. The 3 closets were more then enough for the clothes for two adults. The housekeeping staff kept things nice and tidy. We both enjoyed returning to the room to see what towel "animal" would be waiting for us. The food onboard was excellent, from the Fantasy Dining Room to any of the other places onboard that served meals. Entertainment by Mat, our Cruise Director was so much fun, he kept things rolling along. The comedy shows and other entertainment was up to par also. We absolutely enjoyed this cruise with Carnival and I would not hesitate to do my next cruise on the wonderful "Sensation" again. All I can say is we had a "Sensational" time aboard.

Port & Shore Excursion Reviews

  • Snorkeling
    The reef was incredible...loved the turquoise waters and our Guide "Ricky" gave a great review of the history of the Bahamas and kept things very entertaining for all of the members on our excursion.

  • Balmoral Island & Sting Ray Experience
    The Island had many chairs available to relax by the water. Food was a little on the expensive side. The weather was not too accommodating on the day of the excursion, but that would not be anything negative, it was still a wonderful excursion to take.
