2 out of 5

terrible cruise from the start

Sail Date: April 09, 2011

Reviewed: 6 years ago

Traveled As: Family (young children)

Room Type: Oceanview

They were 7 hours late boarding to begin with and the staff in the port area where we had to wait was extremely rude. We were fed the most awful food we have ever had and forced to stay at the convention center for 6 hours. The cruise line made no effort to try to make up for the time that was lost or in any way make up for the awful experience. We will never cruise with carnival again.

Pros: the ports

Cons: the schedule

Recommends Carnival Elation? No.
