First Cruise

Sail Date: September 01, 2009

Reviewed: 7 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Oceanview

The ship was clean, always saw someone cleaning. Crew and staff were very polite, always recognizing people that they had seen before, and mentioning names if they had met you. Food in the dining room was very good, wide selection, great desserts.

Pros: Spa, food, shore excursion

Cons: Lots of loud late 20 somethings

Recommends Carnival Elation? Yes!

Lloyd at the piano bar, Dukes, was great fun, and had the whole room singing along. The show was a bit cheesy, but the main singers were very good.
Ship Quality
Food and Dining
Enjoyed the dining room exeperieince. Our waiter Eddie and his helper Romeo were both freindly and helpful. After I ordered iced tea at the first meal, they had it for me every time. We bought the wine package, three bottles for a discount, and the wine was good, but probably too much for the two of us. We shared with another couple on the last night.
Cabin / Stateroom
Bigger than we thought it would be. bed was comfortable, room was clean. I asked for a hair dryer and it was brought within 5 minutes.
