Food and Dining

5 out of 5
Just what you'd expect, a lot of food, and it was great, many options including 24-hour room service.


5 out of 5
Plenty of options to choose from, shows were good, plenty to do if you wanted or just lay back and be waited on.

Service and Staff

See above.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
Just like Vegas, the hallways to your cabin are LONG which could be a good thing, the stairs and walk to your cabin augments the amount of food available.

Cabin / Stateroom

3 out of 5
I give this just a good rating because there was no way to monitor the heat, or lack there of in the cabins, it was quite chilly in the morning and evenings.

Pros: The Food!

Cons: The places we visited weren't all that great.

Recommends Carnival Elation? Yes!
