All my friends love to cruise. Was expecting food to be excellent, but was not impressed. Lobster one night was good, steaks however were not. Could eat unlimited food, but didn't want to because of poor quality.

Food and Dining

Salad bar and fruit good. Just not impressed with hot selections.

Staff were very friendly.

Ship Quality

Cabin / Stateroom

Bed very comfortable, room small. Don't recommend being on main deck on end of ship, can feel motors.

Recommend going on an excersion. Long walk from harbor to beach. Can take water taxi but Carnival warns against it.
Don't Miss: Lover's Beach

Pros: Good service.

Cons: Older ship, cheesy entertainment, Not impressed with the food.

Recommends Carnival Elation? No.
