Review SummaryWe recently sailed on the Carnival Elation for the first time and it was nice. There was a good variety of places to eat on the cruise and it seemed as though food was available pretty much anytime you wanted to eat. Although the pool and hot tub areas were nice, it was too cold to go in either. Although the dining rooms were nice, the menus did not have much variety and the staff could have been a bit more attentive and more social with the guests. Shore excursions were limited and way overpriced if purchased through Carnival. It was better to just get off the cruise and buy a tour on your own. The rooms were more spacious than we have been used to seeing in the past on other cruise lines with additional storage and closet space. The bathroom was also quite larger in size with additional storage space for your personal items (i.e., medicine cabinet). The downside of the room was that our bed faced a wall instead of the TV. There was a TV in the room, but it was on the same wall that the bed was backed up to so it was hard to see the TV. We loved all the nightlife options. The shows were great! It felt like a totally different night out, every single night. The ship was really impressive, the staff was pleasant, and we would cruise with Carnival again just not to these ports of call because there wasn't enough to do and the weather wasn't warm enough to do any of the shore excursions.
