The third member of Carnival Cruise Line’s beloved Fantasy Class of ships; the Carnival Sensation has been wowing guests for more than 20 years. Despite being one of the older ships in the Carnival fleet, the ship keeps up with her younger sisters thanks to regular renovations and refurbishments. The most recent refurbishment came in 2009 when she received the Evolutions of Fun upgrade.
Perfectly suited to family cruising, the Sensation benefits from a range of features and amenities which appeal to a wide variety of different age groups. From the WaterWorks water park to the 9-hole mini golf course – the ship offers plenty of opportunity for kids to be kids and for adults to be kids.
Additionally, the ship was one of the vessels chartered by the US Government following Hurricane Katrina to help with the rescue and recovery missions. After helping the citizens of New Orleans, she returned to her normal service with the reputation as a hero.
Alongside the water park – there are plenty of dry activities and forms of entertainment to enjoy throughout days and nights at sea. The Punchliner Comedy Club offers side-splitting belly laughs for the whole family as sharp comics take to the stage and thrill with their witticisms. Offering a wide range of musicals and theatrical productions – the Playlist Products theatre is full of great family shows.
If you’re tired out from all this entertainment, there are a couple of more relaxed options to allow you to truly unwind. The Serenity Adult-Only Retreat and Spa Carnival give you the opportunity to pamper and spoil yourself in beautiful, relaxing settings.
Providing the perfect settings for the family to group together after another exciting day on the sea – the Carnival Sensation offers a great range of restaurants and dining options to suit all moods, tastes and palates. From sophisticated and elegant restaurants to relaxed open-air eateries – you’ll be sure to find your perfect menu on-board.
For families travelling with young children – many of the restaurants offer comprehensive kids’ menus packed full of their favourites from pizzas to burgers and everything in between.
The Carnival Sensation benefits from Camp Carnival – the comprehensive children’s groups for kids aged 2-11. Split into three age-specific groups, Camp Carnival gives your kids the chance to make new friends and enjoy games and activities such as dance parties and video game tournaments.
