Carnival Sensation

To see discounted cruises on this ship, use the Find a Bargain box on the left.

Carnival Sensation goes big with its three waterslides, several pools, expansive spa, large areas for children and the quiet adults-only Serenity retreat. For a larger than life experience, Hasbro, the Game Show brings super sized versions of favorite board games to life for the entire family to enjoy. Seuss at Sea features Dr. Seuss’s unforgettable characters in a story time and parade. The active family will enjoy the fitness classes, nine-hole mini golf course, jogging track and gym. Refuel at one of the main restaurants, the bar and grill, Blue Iguana Cantina or Guy’s Burger Joint. Carnival also offers beverage packages which will come in handy at one of the many bars around the ship, including Michelangelo’s Lounge, adorned with classic Roman columns. When it’s time to retire, your stateroom will be waiting with the luxurious Comfort Bed Collection: thick mattresses, fine bed linens and custom pillows are standard for every stateroom onboard Carnival Sensation.
