4 out of 5

A wonderful cruise

Sail Date: October 18, 2010

Reviewed: 6 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Oceanview

Ship was designed very well with exception of second dining room as galley was between the two and it made it hard to find. Ship had a couple of new shows and they were very good. Comics were good in main show however a bit crude even for me in R rated shows at late night shows aft of ship.

Pros: Shows on ship, dining, and shore excursions

Cons: Bingo on ship had $500 jackpots for $20 worth of cards per player ship was making money instead of having amount paid for cards used for 3 or 4 games totalling amount paid by cruisers

Recommends Carnival Elation? Yes!

Food and Dining
Food was really really good best I've experienced on 3 cruises. Matri'de should'v e kicked out people who came into dinning room not dressed to the dress code as all other restauraunts could serve them. It cheapened the dining experience to see people wearing ball caps, flip flops, un-collored shirts, especially on formal night!!
Cabin / Stateroom
Same size as other cruise rooms had excellent view of Ocean with big windows not small windows as in other cruises.
Ship Quality
People in second main dining area had to find way to the restuaraunt which was tricky the first time. after that was no problem.
Service and Staff
Staff was outstanding except for matri'de
Gave you daily sheets with all activities and times of the activities with location of the activities.
Cozumel, Mexico
Isla Passion was great excursion, three Amigos great Bar and restuaraunt
Don't Miss: Isla Passion excursion
Calica, Mexico
shopping at Plya De Carmen. take taxi with another couple for $13 each couple round trip can't beat it. see the city and you are safe with policemen holding automatic weapons.
