Default Just Returned from Sensation

We just returned from the Sensation, any questions??? We cruised to Costa Maya
rather than the Grand Cayman Islands. Many passengers were upset, but Costa Maya
was great. It was built just for cruise ships. Plenty of shopping, swimming pool, clean
restrooms, great shore tours, nothing to complain about. The people there are friendly
and appreciate having you. A great experience!!! The Sensation is in great condition for
her 11 years in service. The food was good, nothing exceptional, service was wonderful.
We had a problem with our cabin neighbors being extreme partiers. They partied from
3pm until 4 am. After 3 nights of no sleep and 15 complaints to the pursers desk, Carnival
finally put their foot down. We don't know what they told these loud horrible people, but they
were finally quiet. We were only 5 of the complaints, so others were being bothered as
well. Those people should be glad that we are not in charge of security. They would have
been put off the ship at Costa Maya. The shows were okay, we have seen been better.
I will be posting a review later.
Happy Sailing.l....

I am going in two weeks, was the ship gaudy? I mean all that purple? Did they drain the pools at night? What time? Was there water in the pool while you were in port in Tampa. How much for a can of Budweiser at the pool bar?

when I went in March and the pool and spas were roped off until the next morning. I was so looking forward to jump in, but oh well, it was a blast anyway. And I never found the topless deck.

less then 7 weeks now for my cruise on the Sensation. Just Thursday I found my cabin using the Kelly Method. We booked an OV GTY in May. And got upgraded to a 6D (empress deck) cabin #E26! I'm so excited. And looking forward to reading your review CruisingBears.

I will try to answer all your questions...
No, I didn't feel like I was anywhere near Wal-mart.!!!!!! lol!!!!
To Dave the Wave:
Pools were empty while in Tampa and filled by 8am the next morning. Beer price ???
They did not drain the pools at night that I recall. The ship is many shades of purple and
blue. Not gaudy, very pretty. We were on the topless deck once. We were the only ones
there. Later I saw 3 males watching the pool from the topless deck. And yes, they
were topless. lol!!! lol!!!!
To Jharlan: I will post a review in the review section this evening. Sorry for taking so long.
To hb:
I can't say about your cruise, but I do know the Grand Cayman port will be closed for
several months, I hear until February.??? Costa Maya is very nice, not fancy , but go
for the Jungle Beach Break.
To kim1319: sounds like a great cabin. My post will be this evening.
Happy Sailing................
