2 out of 5
Sail Date: April 01, 2010
Ship: Carnival Elation
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Traveled As: Large Group
Reviewed: 8 years ago
The overall ship was in bad shape. Inside the cabins the drawers are falling apart. Outside the cabin, the carpet smelled like urine. Very unorganized disembarkation process (they kick you out of the room, tell you to go disembark and the chaos begins). The spa staff are rude. Food is too salty. Overall would never go on the Carnival Elation ever again.

Food is too salty. The staff are nice and trying their best to accommodate.

Comedians are soooo funny. Best part of the cruise.

Service and Staff

3 out of 5
Depending on the department -- Wait, room service staff, and stateroom stewart is friendly. Spa and shore excursion staff is rude.

Ship Quality

1 out of 5
Layout of the ship is confusing. Floors don't align.

Cabin / Stateroom

3 out of 5
Average room, the condition should be better -- some of the clothing drawers are falling apart.

Pros: Comedian shows were the best.

Cons: Old ship (smelled like urine outside our cabin); Papas & Beer excursion was cancelled; rude Spa staff.

Recommends Carnival Elation? No.
