My first Carnival cruise was six years ago and a bad experience. I was pleasantly surprised on the Elation being such a beautiful ship with a fabulous crew. Our captain was very cordial and made us feel very welcomed on his ship. The staterooms were very large compared to most ships, 175 sq. ft. The food was very good and was fresh even on the last day without running out. The passengers were great and we made lots of friends as well as great conversations with many people, crew included. September is a great time to travel for our future since most passengers were over 40 y.o. Problems seemed nonexistant. The weather was perfect 85-103 temp. the whole trip. beaches were beautiful. We will travel on the Elation again.

Pros: entertainment and island stops

Cons: Lido deck buffet, not enough choices
