About PatRoederer

I am a retired high school math/technology teacher from Louisville, KY. Love to cook, travel, and garden. I've traveled extensively in the U.S. (including Alaska and Hawaii) and visited Mexico, Okinawa, Taiwan and the Bahamas. Visited many of the ports of the Caribbean. Five cruises under my belt and planning the next one.

Carnival Elation

February 2013 - Carnival Elation to Caribbean

You Get What You Pay For

This was our fourth cruise with Carnival and each cruise seems to deteriorate a little bit more. Of course, this was a very economical cruise but I did expect things to be a bit better than they were. Food was very bland and cold. Our room was definitely showing wear even though the ship was supposedly revamped in 2011. The fabric on the stool under our vanity was torn and unraveling and long strings were dragging the floor. Never once got a turn down service on the bed, chocolates on the pillow or an animal towel. We went to a comedy show and were surprised to find that it only lasted 20 minutes. By the time our drinks arrived, it was over. We took two of our children and four of our grandchildren and none of them had ever been on a cruise. I figured, being first timers, they'd enjoy it and it would give them a taste of what a cruise is about. Unfortunately, it pretty much turned them off to taking cruises in the future.

PatRoederer's Tips

Carnival Elation Carnival Elation - Very cheap cruise but it showed. None of the little treats we're accustomed to. Food was really bad, especially breakfasts.
