Traveled As: Singles/Friends

Room Type: Suite

I do not recommend this ship for senior adults.

Pros: The stateroom and staff were excellent

Cons: Got the bubbles on our cards and couldn't get a waiter to serve sodas in the imagination dining room, or on the lido deck. Out of $90.00, we recieved six sodas on the lido deck. There was not enough activiites for Seniors. Most elderly people go to bed early in the evening. The pool areas to sma

Recommends Carnival Elation? No.

Ship Quality
To many chairs and not enough swimming area.
Food and Dining
The food was o.k. in the imagination dining room, great chocolate warming cake. I order a soda and the waiter just ignored me. Coffee was stale most of the time.
Service and Staff
Had to stand in line for 15 minutes, waiting to get proof of VIP, so our party could depart the ship. Staff giving direction was rude, and unwilling to accomodate.
Children's Programs
To many children aboard, and family placed next door to our stateroom had a child that cried all the time. Children running up and down the halls.
Cabin / Stateroom
Loved the stateroom and VIP guests allowed for easy access to ship and off the ship.
Cozumel, Mexico
Done the dolphin excursion $300.00 for 3 people. The excursion itself was not long enough. Sea lion show was to short. Rip off.
