Default Carnival Sensation On-Ship Review UPDATED AGAIN POST-CRUISE

Hey guys, after learning we had been awarded 180 minutes of free wifi on the ship, i decided i'd make my review for the Sensation a streaming cruise-long review. For starters let me say that even since my May 07 cruise on this ship they have made MAJOR improvements and advancements into the Evolution of fun program. In my first part of the review, i'd like to make note of some of the changes that have been made. For starters, the ships marketing staff is going full ahead with the new naming of this as well as the other Fantasy class ships. No longer is it the M/S Sensation but now the Carnival Sensation!!!!!! YAY In addition the first of the Lido deck improvements as part of the EOF program has been added. When stepping onto lido deck its now almost impossible to miss the towering metal and net structure that sets in the middle of the deck. The "Water Wars" Arena has been added. It consists of 2 "target" zones where opponents sit and launch water balloons at their opponent's zone, and a fill station where the balloons are filled. I look forward to seeing how this works out later in the cruise. Its on the teen caper for the Sea Day on Wednesday. Also Carnival has teamed up with the movie "Hairspray" which has provided them with a variety of promotional materials and activities. The teen caper is PACKED and i'll post a complete list when i get home of the activities. First of all Carnival has adopted the 02 Hottie Hunt!! Also formal night is described as " Come dressed to impress on our "Hairspray" formal night" Also the 3rd night is called "Stop Light Dress Night" Green if your single and looking, Yellow if your cautious but not yet taken and Red: STOP if your taken. I think the addition of all these new interactive ideas into the teen caper will really make for a much more interactive and pleasurable cruise with a club 02 program that will entice teens to participate. As I recieve more information, i will add it as well as pictures. In fact we do have 2 Directors on board, Andy and Ezster, both of which I'm anticipating to be a LOAD OF FUN in spite of my prior aspirations of the directors. Wish me luck! Have fun to all of u at home! Bye for now.

Update 2: Day 2, Freeport, Bahamas

Water Wars is a load of fun, you actually shoot the balloons out of a giant slingshot at your opponent.

The Stop Light Night Goes Like This:

Wear Green on Night 3 If: You are still single on your cruise and looking for a date.

Wear Yellow: If you have someone in mind but are still open to new ideas.

Wear Red: If your taken and have a date.

Lucky for me, i'll be wearing my Red board shorts tomorrow night!!!!!!!!!!!

Hairspray has LOADED this ship down with cool stuff for the movie! Tonight they gave away an absolutely GENIOUS toy for the club: Glow Sticks!!!

The Club Directors are doing an excellent job with music and the teens, the problem is that there isnt a lot of dancing. I'm working on that though. Surprisingly, I havent been kicked out for grinding yet so mabye she has changed.

Carnival has a new Deck Party theme called Carnival Colors Deck Party, which will be tomorrow (Tuesday) night and i'll update on how it goes. Good luck and happy sailing.

Hey guys, sorry I got a little backed up on my review on the ship but we had some communication issues and then they closed the Internet Cafe' at 11:00 last night.

For the Carnival Colors Deck Party, you don't have to wear any particular color. Our colors were Red and Blue because those are CCL's trademark colors as would be Blue and Yellow for RCI. The dancefloor was split into the red and blue teams and each team recieved XX number of points based on their participation and/or winning of specific events. The events of the deck party were as follows:

11:30 DJ On Lido Deck

12:00 Deck Party Starts

Electric Slide
Cha Cha Slide
Carnival Colors Conga Contest
Hairspray Dance Competition
Carnival Lip Syncing Contest
Cupid Shuffle

12:50-1:30am DJ Plays on Deck

Club O2 was also awesome this cruise. Unfortunately I can't comment on nights 2 and 3 because i was preoccupied with my friend Lauren's obligation to babysit her little sister. I don't understand why parents would stick that burden on teens who are on vacation!!! WFT!! Oh well, I pulled some strings and got her little (13) sister in the club on the last night so we finally got to dance. The first night was kind of slow and my understanding was that 2-3 were too. However, being the crazy fool I am, we got the party started and Eszter, the 2nd (And BEST Club O2 director) stayed with us from 10pm till almost 2am and there was a crowd the entire time. At peak i'd say we had 150 teens bumping and grinding everywhere that there was floor to stand on lmao! Andy killed our mood with a "Dance in a way that your parents would approve of" speech which of course pissed ppl off and made them grind more! For anyone sailing on the Carnival Sensation between now and January, Eszter will be your Club O2 Director. As of Sept Andy will be gone and Eszter will be the only O2 director and I assure you guys, she is TOTALLY COOL and was even grinding with the teens last night!!!

I'll post the pictures of the ship as well as the individual public area reviews by this weekend. Any questions you have, feel free to post them and i'll do my best to respond. Pics are up on my Myspace now.
