Carnival Sensation to Get 'Extreme Makeover'

It's upgrade time for the Carnival Sensation, one of the line's oldest ships.

Carnival says the popular vessel, which sails to the Bahamas out of Port Canaveral, will go into dry dock in January for a multi-million dollar "extreme makeover" that includes a new deck top water park.

The face-lift for the 15-year-old ship also will bring an adults-only pool area, among other upgrades to the top decks.

The 2,052-passenger Sensation is a workhorse of the Carnival fleet that sails short three- and four-day cruises to Nassau and Freeport. It's a favorite of Southerners who can drive to Port Canaveral to pick it up.

The ship will become the fourth of Carnival's eight Fantasy Class vessels to get such a makeover as the line spends $250 million to revamp its oldest ships. The Carnival Inspiration and Carnival Imagination underwent a similar overhaul late last year and the Carnival Fantasy is scheduled for a re-do this fall.
