Carnival Sensation, one of Carnival Cruise Lines' 70,000+-ton Fantasy Class ships, is a fantastic choice for those looking for a fun and affordable cruise vacation. This ship sails year-round from Port Canaveral, Florida (driving distance from Orlando) and exclusively does short (3- and 4-night) Bahamas cruises.

There are many dining venues and options available on a Carnival Sensation cruise. For instance, there are main dining rooms (where you can choose between their Assigned and Your Time, also known as open, Dining programs), the Seaview Bar & Grill (featuring a buffet, deli and pizzeria), a rotisserie, as well as 24-hour room service.

While on a Carnival Sensation cruise you'll have a large selection of entertainment venues and things to do. Fantasia is the ship's main show lounge, where there's a wonderful live performance during each night of the cruise. Among the possible shows are dancers, singers, acrobats, musicians, magicians, comedians and game shows. If you're feeling lucky while on a Carnival Sensation cruise you'll be able to test your luck at Club Vegas Casino (where you can play games including blackjack, roulette, craps, poker and slot machines).

There's a great age-based youth program available on all Carnival Sensation cruises. Camp Carnival is a supervised program that's just for 2 through 11 year olds. Circle "C" is a cool spot for 12 to 14 year olds, featuring video games, late night movies, Karaoke and more.
