Ship Facilities


Offering guests an excellent choice of dining from early morning to late into the evening, Carnival Sensation makes sure each and every guest has a culinary journey that is just as memorable as the cruise itself.


Many of the dining options onboard the ship are included in the price of your fare, meaning that you can indulge in as much of the delicious cuisine as you wish.

Fantasy and Ecstasy Dining Rooms- these are the two main dining rooms onboard the ship, the latter being for those with flexible dining times. With a rotating menu that changes daily, guests will never have to eat the same meal twice (although with such delicious dishes, we wouldn’t blame you if you did!).

  • Seaview Restaurant- no cruise ship would be complete without a buffet, and on Carnival Sensation the Seaview Restaurant is the place to go for plate after plate of tasty food from around the world. With themed stations, self-service drinks machines and a huge fresh salad bar, you’ll find it hard to tear yourself away during mealtimes.
  • Pizza Pirate- open 24 hours a day, Pizza Pirate is the go-to restaurant for mouth-watering slices of pizza whenever the feeling finds you.
  • Carnival Deli- Serving food from late morning until late evening, this is the best eatery on the ship for deli-style sandwiches spilling over with your favourite fillings.
  • Guy’s Burger Joint- guests will be delighted to find Carnival’s most popular restaurant onboard Carnival Sensation. Dine here for juicy burgers and seasoned fries, rounded off by the toppings of your choice from the topping station.
  • BlueIguana Cantina- a firm favourite amongst Carnival guests, this Mexican-themed restaurant brings you fresh flavours for breakfast and lunch.


If you’re looking to treat yourself a little more during your cruise, there is the option to splash out on a speciality restaurant to make your foodie experience even more exciting.

  • Steakhouse selections- indulge in a premium cut of meat at the main dining rooms.
  • Chef’s Table- for real food-lovers, this exclusive backstage experience includes a kitchen tour and multicourse dinner.

However, Carnival Sensation has more to offer than just bars and lounges. The main hub of evening entertainment is the Fantasia Theater, where guests can enjoy interactive game shows and twice-nightly productions by Playlist Productions. The Club Vegas Casino is also a bustling venue, packed out late into the night with guests looking to hit the jackpot during a game of poker or a turn on one of the slot machines.

Things to do

Daytime onboard the ship are just as lively as the evenings and nowhere is there more activity than the pool area. Here, guests can splash about in the water, lounge about next to the pool or take part in anything from a Very Hairy Chest Contest to line dancing events. Even more popular is the WaterWorks aqua park, featuring three slides and dedicated splash area for the smaller kids.

If you’d rather not get wet, there are plenty of other activities at your disposal on the deck. Ranging from a mini-golf course, to a jogging track, sports court and table football tables, there’s no end of fun to be had. Meanwhile, if you’d like to take your workout a little more seriously, there is also a fitness centre offering everything from exercise machines to personal training sessions and group classes.

However, for those looking to spend their downtime kicking back and relaxing, don’t worry- Carnival has thought about you too! Allow yourself a few hours of “you time” at Spa Carnival, where an experienced professional will pamper you with treatments of your choice, ranging from massages to facials and body scrubs. There’s even a salon, so you’ll be able to leave feeling completely spoilt.

Back in the Atrium and guests can hide away from the crowds in the peaceful library and lose themselves in a book or play a board game, while the nearby shops are a great place to pick up a souvenir of your holiday or a more lavish duty-free treat.
