The ship was very clean and taken care of. The food was very good and presented in an attractive way. Our room was always ready for us. Towels,etc. were always ready. Great steward - Solly!!! He was there anytime we needed him. Crew was very professional and willing to help any time. Piano bar, Tommy G. was terrific! We went every night. Very personable and talented. Shows were very good. Top notch.

We were at table #238 - our waiters were outstanding and tended to every request we had. Our dining time was 6:00 and it was ok.

Tommy G - outstanding I would loved to have attended the comedy but it was too packed and we couldn't get in without standing. The other shows were outstanding, very talented young people. Would suggest more shows.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Nothing to say. It was small for the three of us but we were only there in the late evening to sleep.

Pros: Every detail was tended to. Very organized getting on & off ship.

Cons: Comedy shows were too crowded. Standing room only. Unable to attend because of the overcrowding.

Recommends Carnival Elation? Yes!
