Will we have ice easily availbale to us on the Sensation? We like to take our own water bottles, but fill with ice to take with us on excursions, etc. Or will we have to request our steward to bring us a bucket?
You can always get ice at the Lido deck buffet beverage station. The ice machines near the cabins are not accessible to the general public, probably to prevent abuse of them like happens in hotels. The ice bucket in your room will be refilled twice daily by your room steward.
I agree with the rest, but when I was on Conquest, I tipped the room steward extra to keep me in ice, I was never without.

I was on the Triumph just last week and we always had a beer in the ice bucket. Our room steward always had ice in it. He would always change it two to three times a day. There was also a ice machine as well as a soda machine on our deck.
