Fantastic Cruise

Sail Date: October 15, 2011

Reviewed: 5 years ago

Traveled As: Large Group

Room Type: Oceanview

We have sailed before on Carnival ships. We have also sailed on Caribbean and Norwegian Cruise ships. However this last cruise on Carnival Elation to Western Caribbean was the most satisfying to us. The food was great as the Maitre"D and the Head Waiter took care of all our special needs with regard to food. The entertainment was great. On the downside, we felt more could have been done to inform the passengers about the "Win a free Cruse" raffle and "Win a free Gift"' raffle etc. By the time we had found out about it it was too late. Overall we were more than satisfied with the cruise experience and we would definitely recommend this ship to others.

Pros: Dining Room Service Staff

Cons: Shore Excursion charges are too steep for average family.
