Carnival Does It Well

Traveled As: Family (older children)

Room Type: Inside

The Elation is a great ship. Very clean, well organized, well-trained staff. We had five in our room and amazingly we were comfortable. We liked the entertainment - especially the Legends show on the last night. There's lots do to and several places to hang out. Great ship!

Pros: Great staff, service, food and entertainment

Cons: MIniature Golf

Recommends Carnival Elation? Yes!

Ship Quality
Very clean. The staff works hard to keep it clean and yet seems to blend in and not be in your way while they do it.
Food and Dining
Food was great. It's amazing that that many people can be served, and served well. Our waiters were friendly and efficient. After one or two meals they were bringing us the condiments and beverages they knew we liked without us having to order them. They were amazing.
Cabin / Stateroom
Very clean. Roomy - even for five of us in the room.
Service and Staff
Well trained.
We had fun. Lots of variety and many places to hang out. The Legends show on the last night was fantastic.
Children's Programs
Our thirteen-year-old had fun making new friends.
Cozumel, Mexico
Good shopping. Great beaches.
Don't Miss: We hired a taxi to take our party of nine to Playa Palancar. $20/pp included the ride, snorkeling and kayaking. Food there was good.
Progreso (Merida), Mexico
Either stay on board or catch a tour to the ruins. Save your shopping for Cozumel.
