When Carnival Sensation underwent an extensive renovation during a 35-day dry dock as part of Carnival’s “Evolutions of Fun” refurbishment program, the ship emerged boasting more balconies than her Fantasy-class sister ships. Ninety-eight of Carnival Sensation's existing ocean view staterooms were retrofitted with balconies, creating expansive new cabins measuring approximately 230 square feet.
Twenty-four of the new balcony cabins are located mid-ship, 12 are located near the stern, and the other 62 are located aft, with several of those accommodations featuring extended balconies. Additionally, a number of Carnival Sensation’s existing suites were modified to feature larger, extended balconies to create a more spacious environment for occupants.
Carnival Sensation was the fourth “Fun Ship” to receive the “Evolutions of Fun” upgrades, joining Carnival Imagination, Carnival Inspiration, and Carnival Fantasy which have already been renovated. Refurbishment is already on the books for the four remaining Fantasy-class ships. No word yet on their balcony status.
