A bit disappointing

Sail Date: October 15, 2011

Reviewed: 5 years ago

Room Type: Oceanview

The ship was clean. The food ok. The room stewarts and the dining room employees and one customer service lady were good at their jobs. For the most part I was very disappointed with Carnival this time. The employees were not friendly, not caring, nor were they helpful. The Captain didn't even come to either time for "his" own party. (Maybe there is a link between the Captain and crew.)

Pros: soft serve ice cream and hot chocolate

Cons: some of the staff just didn't seem to care about the passengers

Recommends Carnival Elation? No.

Ship Quality
My understanding is that the ship was about to get a makeover.
Service and Staff
It took us about 2 1/2 hours to get a tender. There were 50 to 75 people waiting but the crew did not see us!
Food and Dining
Cabin / Stateroom
