My second time sailing with Carnival. Very fun atmosphere. Excellent food. Lots of fun activities - dancing, karaoke, eating. and On -shore activities. Loved the chocolate fountain buffet, which is always a highlight on carnival ships.

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
Delicious. I like that they provide gourmet food a la carte (which is still all you can eat) in moderate portions. That way, the quality is very good, instead of mass-produced taste (cafeteria-buffet style). Suprisingly good for all you can eat.

Service and Staff

We had better waiters on our ship last time. This time, we arrived at dinner a bit late (past 9:30pm), and we told we could not get any food. Even getting just a hot chocolate proved to be an ordeal.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
Cleanliness, great. Excellent service. Even though our room looked like a bomb after showering in the morning, and changing in it throughout the day, they always cleaned it up, so in the evening, we would have fresh towels, instead of beach towels all over the flloor

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
2 people to a room, up to 4. which can be fun if you want friends to stay over and watch a movie/hang out.

Pros: Food, activities

Cons: You had to pay for laser tag and some other activities.

Recommends Carnival Elation? Yes!
