  3. Carnival Sensation
We visited Jamaica and grand Cayman. Both ports were amazing! Would recommend to anyone. The ship was an older ship, which we knew entering the cruise. This was our 3rd cruise so my husband and I are familiar with the embarkation procedure and the cruising experience. We had been on 1 royal Caribbean cruise and 1 carnival. Our room was in the front of the ship on deck 6. We heard banging from closet, bathroom, cabin doors allllll night and all day. We felt music thumping all night long. We were extremely irritated as this was the first time we had ever experienced this on a cruise. Shows were lacking, activites were lacking and so was space around the pool and in the pool. Our hallway often smelled of cigarettes and marijuana which made no sense because I could pinpoint which cabin the small was coming from so it was hard to understand why they were unable to find it for themselves. Now the staff on the ship was amazing. Our room was clean, dinner server was amazing and everyone else on the ship was amazing. I would just recommend avoiding this ship! I do understand it is an older ship but the noise really did destroy our peace.

Ports were great but ship was horrible
