Carnival Sensation (formerly Sensation) is a Fantasy-class cruise ship operated by Carnival Cruise Line. Built by Kværner Masa-Yards at its Helsinki New Shipyard in Helsinki, Finland, she was floated out on November 1, 1993, and christened Sensation by four Carnival Vice Presidents: Vicki L. Freed, Roberta Jacoby, Cherie Weinstein and Geri Donnelly.

During 2007, in common with all of her Fantasy-class sisters, she had the prefix Carnival added to her name.

The third ship to be built in the Fantasy class, Carnival Sensation returned to active cruise service on February 12, 2009, after an extensive drydocking and refit. During the refit, 98 private balconies were added to former ocean view rooms. An adults only sunning area, called Serenity, was added to the Promenade Deck, aft. A children's water park area was installed on the Verandah Deck, aft, in an area formerly used as a pool and sunning area. The Carnival Sensation's main pool area on the Lido Deck, midship, was renovated, and the water slide was removed. Other renovations included new carpeting in public spaces and in her main dining rooms, and the addition of a 4-story tall "Carnival Waterworks" waterslide at the aft of the ship.

In early 2016, the Carnival Sensation moved to Miami, replacing the Carnival Victory, doing 4 and 5 night cruises. The Carnival Victory took over the 3 and 4 night cruises to Nassau and Freeport, Bahamas, in the Bahamas.

Carnival Sensation chartered

The Carnival Sensation was one of several cruise ships chartered by the US Government to provide accommodation for residents and relief workers following Hurricane Katrina. After being released from Federal Emergency Management Agency service, the Carnival Sensation replaced the Carnival Fantasy on Carnival's 3 and 4 day cruises from Port Canaveral. In early 2016, the Carnival Sensation moved to Miami, replacing the Carnival Victory, doing the 4 and 5 night cruises. The Carnival Victory took over the 3 and 4 night cruises to Nassau and Freeport, Bahamas, in the Bahamas.

Evolutions of Fun upgrade

The Carnival Sensation recently became the fourth ship to undergo extensive refurbishments, which added a 9-hole mini golf course, a children's water park area with waterslides and splash park, and a "serenity" adult-only deck.

Itinerary

In February 2018, the company announced that Carnival Sensation would take 17 sailings to Cuba in 2019.
