Default Activities on Sensation for kids 9-12?

Can anyone who has sailed on the Sensation with kids tell me what kind of activities there are for 9-12 yr. olds? I know there is a pool and slide. Is there an arcade? Ping-pong? Kids lab or activity center with computers? I'm considering Sensation, but want to be sure kids don't get bored. Thanks.

Hi Terry,
The kids actually will find lots to do onboard, they really love it. If they go to Camp Carnival, here is what their programs are all about, hope this helps:

Ships: Carnival Destiny, Carnival Spirit, Carnival Triumph, Carnival Victory, Celebration, Ecstasy, Elation, Fantasy, Fascination, Holiday, Imagination, Inspiration, Jubilee, Paradise, Sensation

Destinations: Bahamas, Caribbean, Mexico, Panama Canal, Alaska, and Hawaii

Groups: Toddlers 2-5; Intermediate 6-8; Juniors 9-12; Teens 13-15.

Counselors: 7 to 9 per ship, depending on the season and size of ship.

Hours: 9:30 a.m. to 10 p.m. year-round. Activities also on port days are free of charge.

Cool Teen Stuff: Alaska cruises feature teens-only shore excursions. All ships have video/electronic arcades

Parent Savers: This is one of the few cruise lines where youth counselors do change little ones' diapers. Group babysitting available from 10 p.m. to 3 a.m.; $5 per hour first child; $3/hour each additional child in the same family. Note that children under two years old can participate in group babysitting (cribs are set up in the youth room). In-cabin cribs available upon request.

Not available: Strollers

Kids' Shore Excursions: Teens-only shore excursions in Alaska are accompanied by a youth counselor and tour escort.

Rates: Special third and fourth passenger rates.

Noteworthy Features: Very spacious family cabins on most ships, many of which can hold up to five passengers. Water slides and wading pools for younger children on some ships. Parents can purchase a card for unlimited kids' fountain drinks during the cruise. The cost is based on length of cruise. While ships do not have dedicated teen rooms, all have video/electronic game rooms. Carnival Destiny, Spirit, Triumph and Victory have largest dedicated children's facilities.

Wow! Factor: All ships have a main pool with trademark Carnival 214-foot waterslide. Many fun family activities are offered throughout the cruise, such as Name that Tune, family craft night, and family deck games

Terry, the sensation as u may know is an older ship 1993, with less camp setup compared to newer ships. If u want u can email me and i can give you info on alternative ships which u and ur children would enjoy far more. ive been on about 280 cruises on virtually every ship so i know a thing or two. my email address is wildjordy@aol.com
