Review SummaryThe Elation was a beautiful ship, not to big not to small, it was right in the middle. I've been on cruises before and I feel this ship was the most comfortable and has a lot to offer. Although I've been on ships a lot bigger than the Elation this boat I seemed to have the most fun on. I got a chance to experience everything and had a great time while doing it. The boat is very CLEAN and in perfect condition. The rooms were always kept spotless, the staff was super friendly, and the service of the dining room was the BEST out of all four of the cruises I've been on. The only thing I really could complain about was LINES, we had a FULL ship so everywhere you went were lines, but they went pretty quick. Also the food was kind of reheated one to many times the first two days or so but after that I found the food to be a lot better. The also had so many selections and difffernt kinds of foods on the boat which was great for my boyfriend and I because we got to try a little of everything, it wasn't the same stuff over and over again. Overall this was my first cruise with Carnival and for the price, service, staff, and the boat I don't think I would use any other cruises lines. I mean if you really want more luxury and top service where the staff is up your ass all day then go with the nicere cruises but for a good, fun, and relaxing time Carnival is the way to go! Also 5 stars on entertainment... the shows, comeday, games were just so much fun and the prizes were awesome as well!
