5 Night Bahamas (Port Canaveral Roundtrip)
Sail Date: November 20, 2006
Ship: Carnival Elation
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Reviewed: 7 years ago
Upon first boarding the Elation, I was struck by the beauty of the ship. Having sailed with Carnival before, I found this particular ship to be even more elegant and inviting than previous sailings. The oceanview stateroom made ample use of it's small yet inviting interior, and was alway kept impeccably clean and welcoming by our cabin steward. The food was, as always with Carnival, delicious! The presentation in the dining room was lovely, the buffet was always hot and varied, and room service was delivered in a timely and courteous manner. The only slight negative was that we felt a bit rushed in the dining room at times, as we were the early seating and felt they were trying to keep to schedule for the late seating guests. Shows were outstanding, and we were particularly impressed with the hypnotist which added variety to the usual singing/dancing fare. Activities were always available and sure to please, and the energy of the cruise director and staff was contagious. Carnival's private island was stunningly beautiful, and Grand Turk had a delightful, huge oceanfront pool which the children particularly enjoyed. This was one of the few disappoinments as well aboard the ship.. the pool and pool deck was often crowded, particulaly on at sea days, and lounge chairs could be hard to come by. But this certainly did not inhibit our thorough enjoyment of this cruise, and I heartily recomment it!
