Carnival Elation

5 Night Western Caribbean (Mobile Roundtrip)

Sail Date: October 18, 2010

Ship: Carnival Elation

Cabin Type: Oceanview

Traveled As: Couple

Reviewed: 7 years ago

Review Summary

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.

Ship Experiences

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
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!!


5 out of 5
Gave you daily sheets with all activities and times of the activities with location of the activities.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Staff was outstanding except for matri'de

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.

Cabin / Stateroom

Isla Passion was great excursion, three Amigos great Bar and restuaraunt
Don't Miss: Isla Passion excursion

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
