Our first 7 day cruise...amazing!

Sail Date: May 14, 2011

Reviewed: 5 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Inside

This was our first seven day cruise and it won't be last. The food was wonderful. The service was above par. We had the smalllest room on the ship, but it was more than adequate.

Pros: Time to relax on the Serenity Deck, casino, shows, comedy, the food and service was outstanding, lots of activities

Cons: Confusion regarding getting to our excursion per taxi was not fun...the photographers on the ship were a bit too pushy, no specials/discounts on the alcoholic drinks

Recommends Carnival Elation? Yes!

The duty free prices on items were so good...
Don't Miss: Shopping for alcohol and items.
George Town, Grand Cayman
I can't wait to go back to Grand Cayman. It was gorgeous, clean, comfortable and we felt safe.
Don't Miss: Snorkeling on the free public beaches.
Montego Bay, Jamaica
We will not go back to Jamaica. It was a very poor country. The security at the port intimidates you from the beginning of the excursion. They charged $5 just to walk out on the beach.
