Great Family Vacation

Sail Date: March 01, 2008

Reviewed: 8 years ago

Traveled As: Family w/young children

Room Type: Oceanview

The ship itself was very nice, and I would have nothing negative to say.

Pros: Good service

Cons: Lido deck buffet

Recommends Carnival Elation? Yes!

Ship Quality
The ship was very (very) full, yet was always clean. The decor is inviting.
Cabin / Stateroom
Always clean, and as usual, the beds are very comfortable.
Service and Staff
Our waiter, room steward were always on top of things. I have always experienced friendly crew on Carnival, and this ship was very friendly and helpful.
Food and Dining
The dining room was excellent, and our family enjoyed our evening meals there. The Lido deck buffet was at times bland, but never bad. The Fantasy had a large sandwich bar which I loved, but this ship had a small sandwich area.
There was more than we would or could participate in. The shows we did see were good.
Children's Programs
I really liked the division of the ages. We used the pre-teen group, and really liked the options available.
