Carnival Sensation in a January drydock will embark on its "Evolutions of Fun" upgrade, a multi-million-dollar refurbishment that will result in an expansive water park, an exclusive adults-only area and a tropical-themed midship pool area. Various renovations will also be performed on nearly 1,000 staterooms as well as other public areas. The entire drydock period should last 35 days.
Carnival Sensation, which operates a three- and four-day Bahamas program from Port Canaveral, FL, is the fourth Fantasy-class ship to receive the makeovers. Carnival Inspiration and Carnival Imagination each completed its refurbishments late last year, and fellow Fantasy-class ship, Carnival Fantasy, will be made over this fall.
The WaterWorks aqua park will be located on Verandah Deck with a 300-foot-long spiral water slide as its centerpiece. The adults-only retreat, Serenity, will be secluded in a nice aft nook. Travel Agent visited Carnival Imagination earlier this year and reports that the adults-only Serenity is truly a great space for those looking for a little peace and quiet. Two whirlpools on each side of this aft area up the relaxation. Stateroom renovations include updated decor, new carpeting and flat-screen TV's.
