Carnival Elation
5 Night Western Caribbean (Mobile Roundtrip)
Sail Date: September 19, 2011
Ship: Carnival Elation
Cabin Type: Inside
Traveled As: Large Group
Reviewed: 6 years ago
At first glance, the ship - The Ecstacy - is beautiful. However, upon closer look, the ship badly needs refurbishing. Upholstery is worn, the decor is outdated and in poor condition in some areas. The service was impeccable and the food was generally good. The evening shows were good. I do not feel that this cruise was not as good as other Carnival cruises we have taken.

This port is a waste of time. The ship was docked in the middle of nowhere, overlooking a limestone business. There was really very little to do there. It would have ben much better to stop in Cancun.

Best restaurant - Jimmy Buffet's.

Pros: Staff efficiency

Cons: Some of the ports of call
