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

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
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.


5 out of 5
There was more than we would or could participate in. The shows we did see were good.

Children's Programs

5 out of 5
I really liked the division of the ages. We used the pre-teen group, and really liked the options available.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
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.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
The ship was very (very) full, yet was always clean. The decor is inviting.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Always clean, and as usual, the beds are very comfortable.

Pros: Good service

Cons: Lido deck buffet

Recommends Carnival Elation? Yes!
