Food and Dining

5 out of 5
The food in the dining room was excellent as you would expect.


5 out of 5
Lots of activities. Something for everyone.

Children's Programs

5 out of 5
My kids didn't attend very many activities. Maybe the councelors should do a survey of activities that the kids would like to do, so that they appeal to more children.

Service and Staff

3 out of 5
Seems like the staff was friendlier before the days of prepaid gratuities. Still nice, but not as good as before.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
Ship was clean and in good shape.

Cabin / Stateroom

We had a balcony cabin. It is amazing!

Did a little shopping in this port. We did buy a leather bag. Their leather works are of very good quality and worth the money. Not much else worth purchasing. The city is not very clean and not really worth getting off the ship for otherwise.

We went to lovers cove and snorkeled. We had a good time.

Pros: beautiful ship

Cons: service overall was just ok not nearly as special as it used to be.

Recommends Carnival Elation? No.
