Carnival Cruise Lines will add balconies to 98 existing staterooms aboard the 2,052-passenger Carnival Sensation during a 35-day scheduled dry dock taking place in January. Ocean view staterooms will be retrofitted with new balconies that will extend from the ship and measure approximately 230 square feet. The stateroom modifications are just one aspect of the ship’s extensive multi-million-dollar renovation, all part of the line’s wide-ranging “Evolutions of Fun” product enhancement initiative. They renovated rooms will be open for reservations October 24.
The upgrade will also include a WaterWorks aqua park, Serenity adults-only area, a “Circle C” facility catering to 12- to 14-year olds, and a redesigned tropical-themed main pool area. In addition, all staterooms, guest corridors, dining, dancing and entertainment venues will be completely refurbished.
Carnival Sensation currently operates year-round three- and four-day Bahamas cruises from Port Canaveral, FL. The 70,000-ton SuperLiner is part of the line’s 22-vessel “Fun Ship” fleet which operates three- to 18-day voyages to Caribbean, Mexican Riviera, Alaska, Hawaii, the Panama Canal, Canada, New England, Bermuda, Europe and South America.
