Rude SPA staff - Unbelievable

Sail Date: March 31, 2011

Reviewed: 6 years ago

Traveled As: Singles/Friends

Room Type: Inside

the ship is apparently due for another renovation on its decor / Although, The last time I traveled on Carnival on the Elation (its decor) was totally different _ I was surprise to hear _ Apparently they go in for renovations when in dry dock.
and the Elation is set up for yet another overhaul. / The rooms however are still outdated and not very high scale (I was afterall staying in the V36) the VIP SUITES .... surprised they were not PLUSH... Veranda Deck FLOOR 11 is suppose to be the MUST DO... location for a cabin / Not So Impressed

Pros: the above and beyond SNACKS throughout ship

Cons: was not thrilled with the SPA accomendations

Recommends Carnival Elation? Yes!

Ship Quality
(see Review above)
Cabin / Stateroom
New Updating (See Review Above)
Food and Dining
wasn't impressed with the HELP YOURSELF BUFFET in the AFT / Every morning the service and food selections were exactly the same as the pervious day
Service and Staff
Over all the staff was fabulous / including the Casino Dealers _ I do not however recommend (even wasting your time in the SPA) the staff hasn't a clue about service / to tell a story _ How I watched a staff member (with the manager backing her up apparently) Treat another fellow Traveller Young Black Lady about 23 _I was absolutely appauled. SMIRK and I thought (it was)just me _they didnt like. Age45
I was very happy with the selection on THINGS TO DO ... GOOD JOB
Children's Programs
Although I myself was not traveling with children / I was able to see
Cozumel, Mexico
you have to experience the WATER in Cozumel ... It (in itself is) the MUST SEE I think the Ruins Tour is a waste of time ... Shopping on your own without the help and guidance of the ship shopping guide / is the best way _ Just freely roam. SeniorFROG and MararitaVille
