Great First Time Experience

Very pleased with Elation - although we heard this is an older ship it is in great condition, very clean and well maintained. Our room was bigger then we thought it was going to be and we enjoyed the animal towels every day. Food was great - loved the sit down dining every evening - made several new friends! The shows were so good too!

Pros: Friendly staff, clean ship, nice room, great food

Cons: No cons; everything went smoothly

Recommends Carnival Elation? Yes!
