5 Night Western Caribbean (Port Canaveral Roundtrip)
Sail Date: October 28, 2006
Ship: Carnival Elation
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 7 years ago
Although I would recommend this ship, my philosophy is that a bad cruise does not exist, there were many things that could have been improved on this trip. The food compard to other cruise lines wasn't what I had expected. The buffets at lunch time were scarce when it came to choices. The formal sit down dinner menu was great when considering presentation and taste. Breakfast was very monotonous when it came to buffet choices.
The ship was elegant and very clean. We did notice that at many times throughout our experience that the ship was undergoing maintanence during prime time hours and not discretely done off hours, perhaps when guest were sleeping or off the ship at one of the arranged destinations.
The entertainment was enjoyed as we attented most shows.
