Excellent service

Sail Date: March 01, 2012

Reviewed: 5 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Inside

The employees were excellent! They really made us feel welcomed and comfortable. I would've appreciated being able to dock and get off at a different place every day and sail during the evening and night. The debarkation process was very unorganized and chaotic. I think in the future every floor should have a specific time to get off. For example, informing all guests the day before we get off that level 4 will begin the debarkation process at 8:00, level 5 at 8:30 and so on. This is better than everyone crowded around the seventh floor waiting to get off at the same time.

Pros: The superb service! Every worker was friendly and eager to please the guests!

Cons: Not being able to dock somewhere everyday and the unorganized debarkation process.

Recommends Carnival Elation? Yes!

I would like to have seen more diversity with the entertainers and performances.
Ship Quality
Elation definitely needs upgrading!
Cabin / Stateroom
Staterooms need to be upgraded.
Children's Programs
Service and Staff
The staff were the best thing about the cruise!
Food and Dining
The only thing I disliked was being forced to sit with people I did not know for dinner. I would have enjoyed having a small table with just my husband and I so we could enjoy having a private conversation.
