Good Value for the Money

Sail Date: November 01, 2009

Reviewed: 7 years ago

Traveled As: Singles/Friends

Room Type: Inside

I was actually surprised to read that the Elation is less than ten years old. Without knowing this, I would have classified it as an "older ship".

Pros: Nice, inexpensive getaway

Recommends Carnival Elation? Yes!

Entertainment
I was somewhat disappointed in the limited number of activities, especially for "at sea" days. Some of the trivia contests we attended were as "audience members" rather than participants. Show schedules were not well planned for "early diners".
Ship Quality
The ship was clean and well laid out. Staff was always in attendance picking up and cleaning public areas.
Food and Dining
The options in the buffet (Tiffany's) were quite limited and at times the buffet lines were long. The choices for the evening meal at the formal dining room were somewhat disappointing - lacked imagination. In fact, the last night we ordered several appetizers as none of the main courses were appealing.
Cabin / Stateroom
Nice size. Not cramped. However, it had a "dated look". It would have been nice if there was a mini-frig in the stateroom.
Service and Staff
The staff was, without exception, very attentive and helpful.
