Carnival Sensation Cruises

Carnival Sensation entered service in 1993. At 70,536 GT she carries 2,040 passengers. Refitting in 2017 has given her an ‘as-new’ look, sporting mini golf course on the sports deck, refurbished staterooms, new children’s facilities, remodelled restaurants, water parks with whirlpools and three pools, and an adults-only deck. Other features include internet access, library, and spa and fitness facilities.

Carnival Sensation offers excellent Las Vegas-style entertainment, a selection of theme bars and lounges, and some of the largest standard cabins in the cruise industry. Past guests give top marks for the ship’s entertainment and its value-for-money. Despite the large number of passengers, there is no sense of being crowded onboard. This well-maintained vessel is ideal for families, veteran travellers, multigenerational groups, honeymooners and singles.)

  • Dining

    Dining on the Carnival Sensation

    The ship’s two dining rooms are Ecstasy and Fantasy, both attractive and bright, with a choice of fixed-time dining at two seatings, or flexible “Your Time Dining”. Dining assignments can be booked before the cruise. Menus change daily and service is excellent. Breakfast and lunch are open seating. Read more

    The Lido Restaurant is a self-serve buffet that provides hamburgers, hot dogs, pizza, salads, ice cream, cookies and so on. There are two alternative restaurants: Nouveau Restaurant (dinner) with steak and seafood, and Bonsai Sushi (lunch and dinner). Treat yourself to the Chef’s Table for 12. Or more simply, try the Mongolian Wok (Asian). The quality of food is good and the ingredients are fresh. The menu is varied, not just in the main dining room, but throughout the ship. Many guests breakfast on the lido deck, and at lunch choose the international dish of the day. A continental breakfast in one’s stateroom comes with streamlined service (pay). Other meals, available 24-hours, include a variety of sandwiches and desserts. Dress up for a “Cruise Elegant” formal night.

Highlights

  • Welcome to Carnival Sensation. The gigantic ship is over 70,000 tons of vibrant fun sensations. Feeling joyous? Excited? Relaxed? Sensations all over? Expected because Carnival Sensation has such effects on people. To know why, read on.

  • To experience water, you need to have a rendezvous with Carnival Sensation’s WaterWorks waterpark. You can zip down the ships Twister Waterslide and spiral into the pool below. You can even challenge your friend for a race on one of the water slides. H2 O has never been so exciting.

  • Playing a game on board is something which everyone will love. You will have time of your life time. Although, it may not be about winning or losing but there can be no greater sensation than tasting victory.

  • Carnival Sensation’s dining options are not optional – you must try BlueIguana Cantina (tacos & burritos!) and Guy’s Burger Joint (yep, burgers!)
