Any in cabin hair dryers on Sensation?

Recommended Posts

Hi there.  Brand new to the boards.

 

I was just on the Carnival Sensation from Miami (4 day, Key West, Cozumel, Day at Sea).  And yes, there are hair dryers in the room (they will either be in the closet or in one of the drawers.  There is a plug at the top of the mirror in the bathroom (usually) to plug it in.  I only note that because we only found one other plug in our room for doing stuff like charging electronics - so we used that bathroom plug for one of our phones each night.

 

Enjoy your upcoming cruise.

My wife says the hair dryers are for people who have short, thin hair, very weak airflow, she brings her own.

We did not have dryers in the room when we sailed. You could request them but I don't think there were enough to have them in all the rooms, all the time.

The Sensation is one of the ships that we are "thinking" of doing next year, and this is a good question.  Actually, I have never been on a Carnival ship where there was not a hair dryer.  For me, I think they put out a lot, to not be any larger than what they are.

 

This is a Sensation question, in case anyone might see it here.  If you have done the Port hole room, can you tell me what deck it is on?  I have done the 4 different types of rooms, but I have fallen in love with this type. 🙂

 

Also, the Casino that is on the ship, do you have to walk through it to get to other areas?  I ask, as I cannot stand being around smoking.

The casino for the Sensation is on the Promenade deck.  There is a inside walkway on this deck (starboard side) that goes past the casino (the sweets shop and the promenade bar - Mirage).  Smoking is allowed in the casino and at the Mirage bar area so while you can't completely avoid walking the past the smell, you can do things to avoid it.

 

But no - you do not have to walk through the casino to get anywhere on the ship.  Take a look at the deck plan for the Promenade and you'll see it should be manageable if you want to avoid it.

Most or all of the ships have a hair dryer in the top drawer of the desk/dressing table and it is already plugged in.  The outlet in the bathrooms will only accomodate a shaver, not a hair dryer.

Carnival's web site has a link for the deck plan of every ship which shows where the casino is and how you can avoid walking through or past it.

We had a hair dryer and fridge when we sailed in Feb. It was a junior suite.

To those of you who informed me that there was another way to avoid the "smoky" casino, thank you!

 Thanks all for hair dryer info.  I'll be able to pack a bit lighter.....or take something in its place!😊
