Lots of variety, but not always the best quality. Some of the food offered was very bland and undercooked.

Saw the Bufadore... great for those that appreciate natural wonders. The shopping was great as well.
Don't Miss: Bufadore

Went glass-bottom kayaking and snorkeling. It was well worth the money!
Don't Miss: Snorkeling or scuba diving

Pros: Carnival offered a variety of events, programs, food, and fun! The beds were so comfortable, my new bride and I could have slept the whole cruise and been blessed by the whole trip!! The staff was amazing and attentive. Great experience!

Cons: Realizing that it will be at least a year before we cruise again!

Recommends Carnival Elation? No.
