Tour the Carnival Sensation

Deck 10

DECK PLAN


At the very front of the deck is the Bridge. Aft of that are officers staterooms. On this part of the deck there’s a small outside passageway that runs to the bridge. You walk along the lifeboat and liferaft area and right up to the bridge which you can see into. I had know for a while this section was off limits, so let’s just keep this a secret….

There’s a raised entertainment platform that people were playing games on.
Off to the side of that is a small stairwell in a glass enclosure. This goes down to the middle of the promenade a deck below. This is extremely convenient for going between the two popular and great people-watching areas.

Just past that is a large sun area.

Past that is the Blue Iguana cantina on port.

On the starboard is the ever popular Guys Burger Joint. It should be noted that in this version of the popular burger place, they give you a standard cheese burger, then you go over to the toppings bar and that’s where you can make it whatever you want.

I could have gone crazy and made a bacon, mushroom burger, but I behaved and just when with the classic lettuce, tomato and onion.
