Great cruise, except private party!

Sail Date: January 21, 2008

Reviewed: 7 years ago

Traveled As: Large Group

Room Type: Inside

The Carnival Elation has been freshened up nicely; rooms are nice size and bathrooms are too. Camp Carnival was wonderful for my grandkids. Food was very good and wait staff was excellent. WARNING - ask Carnival if there will be any big private parties before boarding! There was a Jazz Festival aboard that reserved the big showroom most days and every evening; they played LOUD music until 2AM every night. Our four rooms were directly below which greatly disturbed everyone's sleep - unacceptable. And Carnival offered no compensation or adjustment for our distress...

Pros: Dining room food and staff were excellent.

Cons: Private Jazz party, loud until 2am!

Recommends Carnival Elation? Yes!

Loved the cruise to arch. The tenders are great fun, too.
