This was my first cruise and it was absolutely amazing!!! The Carnival Elation was a beautiful boat and the crew was extremely friendly! Naussa wasn't what I expected and I was slightly disappointed at that port, but Half Moon Cay exceeded my expectations and make the whole invite trip wonderful! I absolutely can't wait until my next cruise!!
We loved our cruise! The destinations were wonderful! The staff were awesome! Can't wait to go again! The private island is my reason for the whole trip! The island is by far the best part of the trip. I hope to book another cruise for this fall.
Our cruise sponsored by CruiseOnly, Carnival Elation was just what we needed. The ship was beautiful and enjoyable, the food exceptional, the staff in every area we utilized was professional and excited that we were there. The dining room staff was efficient and paid attention to details. Friendly staff, not shy about speaking or giving you the greeting of the day. This cruise was much better than my last, the entire trip was a noticeable difference from my first cruise. The nightly entertainment in the DRAMA Bar area was exceptional. Thank you for a stress free cruise. .
For a four night cruise for the price we paid, you couldn't beat it. The dining staff and housekeeping staff were phenomenal, and I can't say enough good about them... they really went out of the way to make sure our kids had a great time!
I have been on five cruises in the past 4 years and this was by FAR the worst ship I have ever been on. I didn't have high expectations since I had cruised on a Carnival before (both this and that trip were part of a large group-not my choosing) but this ship left a LOT to be desired. The ship itself was extremely old, outdated and literally falling apart in the cabins. There was issue with the AC releasing diesel into the rooms, backed up sewage and extreme wear and tear on the ship. My safe in the room was broke, as was it for several others in our group, and after calling for two days to get it fixed/replaced I gave up.
The service for the most part was unlike any other ship I've cruised with. The majority of the staff acted as though they hated being there, and several would talk at you not to you. Far too many photographers and not enough bartenders. Most of our group purchased the drink package and found it frustrating that we had to wait five minutes in-between non alcoholic drinks because of the policy. The food was probably the most insulting part of the cruise as there was not one meal that was even par to the salad bar on past cruises. I even spent $20 to upgrade my steak one night, but didn't taste any difference from the flank steak on the regular menu.
When I went to the gym to workout it came as no surprise that nearly ALL the eliptical, treadmills and stationary bikes were broken.
Overall I had a good time on the ship, but this was because I was with a group of 28 amazing people, and we spent almost all of 2 of the 4 days on land in the Bahammas. I would never recommend this ship to ANYONE😜
anyone that goes to Progresso BIG TIP:::: ride the free shuttle to the town, they sell excursion there. SAME AS CARNIVAL and 1/3 the price we paid $35 for an all inclusive and upon arrival saw people from Carnival that said they paid $85. Every cruise on the ship can be bought on the free bus ride into town
