We had a great time on the Elation. The ship was spotless as was our room. Food in the Imagination dining room was good to excellent every night & the Lido buffet was always good. Anyone who has cruised before on any ship will know what to look for. All cruise ships rock, Elation is no exception. Would suggest that you reveiw the ships amenities beforehand to know what is offered. We are already planning another cruise on Elation.

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
Good was very good. Service was a bit slow at times in Imagination, but no worse than most places on "land."


3 out of 5
Shows were good. Comedy acts tended to be "adult" oriented. Would prefer more family friendly acts.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
The staff was always friendly and helpful.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
Easy to get around and always clean.

Cabin / Stateroom

3 out of 5
When sleeping four our oceanview stateroom was a little small. We did our research ahead of time and knew what to expect so were not disappointed.

Pros: Food & cleanliness of ship

Cons: Need more family friendly shows/comedy acts

Recommends Carnival Elation? Yes!
