Since I live in Tampa, my wife and I have taken the Sensation five times so far. January 2002 will be number 6. We have found the Sensation to be just great for the Western trip. Although the port time in Grand Cayman is short, the rest of the trip is ideal. Since we both prefer days at sea more than days at port, this cruise is especially appealing to us. Cozumel has about everything one could want to do on shore and New Orleans is one of our favorite stops. The ship is easy to move around in and we never feel crowded. Food has always been great and the service excellent. We have never been disappointed on Carnival.
