Ship: Carnival Elation
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Traveled As: Family (older children)

Ship is older and showing its age, but overall maintained fairly well.

The food in the dining room was warm at best and the service was slow and unorganized. Food was delivered to table at random, several people finished their main course before other were even served. Our table had to refill our own water glasses by grabbing a pitcher from the waiter's stand and had to stack dirty dishes in the middle of the table.

Cabin showed its age, but was clean. Cabin Stewart was excellent.

Ship activities were fine, but nothing special.

In the end, I think we will stick with RCCL in the future.
