Mediocre Cruise Ship

Sail Date: June 11, 2006

Reviewed: 6 years ago

Traveled As: Family (young children)

Room Type: Inside

Carnival needs to do a lot of work on the Elation in order to compete with the newer ships. They also need to rework the activities and get some new menus. I will never take a Carnival cruise again. Royal Caribbean is the best.

Pros: Chose Carnival because of the unique Ports of Call; the service staff were excellent.

Cons: The ship was rundown; the food was bland; it took 2 hours to get through immigration so we missed our tour; the excursions were not what they always said in the description. Additionally, my son was bored with Camp Carnival and the adult activities were repeats from other Carnival Cruise ships.

Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas
Best for shopping!
Don't Miss: Pirate and historical home tour very good. Buy jewelry!
Grand Turk Island
Not much to see or do. Snorkeling was average.

San Juan, Puerto Rico
Love the food and the ambience.
Don't Miss: Having Pina Colada at the restaurant where it was first created.
