Fun with friends cruise

Sail Date: June 18, 2009

Reviewed: 8 years ago

Traveled As: Singles/Friends

Room Type: Oceanview

Windows were filthy, but they were washing them as we left. Food not good in buffet. Boat is so dated in decor. Bathrooms around boat dirty.
Buffet , tables not cleared soon enough. Bad.... The rooms are decent and clean, bathroom was bigger than most other ships. The dancing
elation show was terrible, comedian was very good. It was a good trip,
because it was with my friends. I have cuised on Carnival, 1999, but
have been on Princess and Royal. They were far cleaner, way better food. With more fun things to do. Sorry. Just my opinion.

Pros: Just hanging out with friends

Cons: The boat was really dated, windows filthy, food at buffet was not too good.

Recommends Carnival Elation? No.

Ship Quality
Elation dancers and singers....not good. The blue attire was terrible.
Velco was showing and they did'nt fit. Entertainment staff in there white
pants and red jackets. Way dingy looking and dated. Was it because it
was only a 3 day cruise?
Food and Dining

We had a great time. The people on the trip were great. Took a bus to town then out to the blow hole. Great job.
Don't Miss: don't stay in town
