Recommends Carnival Elation? Yes!

loved the comedy options .. dancing ammenities were nice .. games were very loud over PA system in auditorium .. There was a juggler that was supberb !! and a New Orleans Motown sound singer as well that are at the top of my list .. the dancers were nice too ... need more day time games around pool area
Ship Quality
very nice ,,,
Food and Dining
Jovan, our waiter was outstanding .. extremely pleasant, very informative about menu .a most gracious attitude .. constant smile .
Cabin / Stateroom
mattress was amazing as was the pillows ...
Service and Staff
Jovan in dining room was super !! very patient and kind . Such a wonderful personality.There were elderly at our table and he was so sweet with them.
Montego Bay, Jamaica
The falls at Ocho Rhios ... otherwise Jamaica was a disappointment .. The shopping area near port was a huge rip off !! a waste of precious shore time .. shame on you Carnival for insisting this be part of the iteneary for shore excursions ... we hired a taxi and went back in to town for real shopping
Don't Miss: The Falls
Cozumel, Mexico
alot of pressure from locals to buy .. more options for just hanging out ..need shuttle bus at port to take to beach area .. that doesn't cost so much
George Town, Grand Cayman
How I would love more time here !!
Don't Miss: stingrays and snorkeling .... Margaritaville !!
