Review SummaryRecent cruise on the Carnival Elation, first time on Carnival. It was a spring break time cruise so ship was loaded (probably overloaded, ship was streched to the max) with a young crowd many teens and families. Ship seemed to handle the kids well. Our groups one problem was we had a group of 10 girls, 2 of which were 17, the 17 year olds could not get into the 18 and up areas and the 18's could not get into the 15-17 club area. The ship had very limited areas the girls could hang out together with music. Overall condition and atmoshphere on ship was average, food was average. Deck was crowded on days at sea, sport deck with bent rim on the basketball court was used but seemed like questionable use of deck space. Rooms and showers larger than expected, although when tv was turned on it came on to loud static everytime, very annoying. Ship does not have a level where you can walk around the entire ship
