Sister ship to my first cruise

Jul 20th, 2019

Has some issues. Hurricane a few days earlier to our departure and lost a day on the ship. Was not handled well and little to no communication. Carnival dumped everyone at a Radison near the port and this was a disaster and handled very poorly. Once on the ship I had a good time but the ordeal prior really brought the mood down for us. Had carnival said we weren’t sailing on day 1, I would’ve remained in Orlando and went to Disney or Universal for a day.

Traveled as a family of 5. We had a very nice time. We always love finding the best beaches and just relaxing or snorkeling. Food and service on ship were great. Enjoyed the entertainment in the evenings and the PG comedians.

Small, older ship, Carnival Sensation has a little something for everyone. It was the cruise team members/fun squad that made the cruise enjoyable.

Overall this cruise was what we expected. It was only a four day cruise and on a smaller/older ship but we still had fun and can't wait to book our next cruise.

This is a smaller old ship. It is well maintained and very nice. I was pleasantly surprised. The crew was great, and fun. Had a great time. No complaints for the Sensation.
