All about the Carnival Sensation
The Carnival Sensation was built in 1993. It's considered a small size ship. Coming in at 855 ft long and 103 ft wide, it's roughly the length of 2.4 football fields, as wide as 1.9 tractor trailers and the same height as a 10 story building.
The Carnival Sensation can hold 2,052 based on double occupancy (two people per room) and more when you take into account 3rd and 4th passengers. When you compare the total tonnage of the ship to the number of passengers, the Sensation has a space ratio of 34. Depending on the ship, this number can range from 30 to 52 (with a bigger number meaning more space per person) so this ship has less space per person than average.
|Passengers (double occupancy)||2,052|
|Passenger to Crew Ratio||2.2|
|Space Ratio (tons of ship per passenger)||34|
Food is a big part of any cruise, and on the Carnival Sensation, there will be plenty of it. You have 13 different dining options to choose from. Of those options, 10 are complementary, or included with your cruise fare. The other 3 options have an additional fee. Some options are a set price and some are a'la cart menu pricing. 77% of the dining options are included which means if you're watching your budget, you won't feel like you're missing out by not going to a lot of extra fee dining places.

Pools and Hot Tubs
Nothing beats relaxing by a pool with a nice drink in hand as you feel the fresh sea breeze pass by you. The problem is that with thousands of people on a ship, there's not always room. We're a firm believer that if you want to just spend all day for 7 days in a pool, a cruise isn't for you. You would have a much better bet choosing a resort with a huge pool complex. That being said, a quick dip in the pool can be nice on a hot day. The Carnival Sensation has a total of 1 pools and 4 hot tubs.
