Review SummaryThis was our first time on the Carnival Elation but 4th time on a cruise. We choose this ship because of where it ported out of - Mobile because we could make the drive to the port - the closest to us - 11 hrs. The port is very easy to get in and out. The ship itself was nice. Staff friendly and helpful. However, my daughter had helped someone that had fallen in a bathroom stall - she was able to get into the stall with the person. A carnival staff person could not - the staff was friendly but never appreciated the help. Also another staff person acted like they could not even come into the bathroom. When there is an emergency you go in. Maybe they are not trained but that is still not an excuse. Our Room Stewart and waitor was very accomindating. Kept our room clean and ice available for us. A+ rating for her and him!!

Pros: The carnival staff - room stewart and waitor was excellent!!!!
Cons: The time in ports. Wish the time at ports was all day or longer. Also, the shows - the dancers did not dance much. Believe they danced at the welcome show and only 1 other time.
