Traveled As: Large Group

Room Type: Balcony

Our room was the biggest disappointment. (See below).

Pros: The small size of the ship made it easy to navigate.

Cons: Our room

Recommends Carnival Elation? No.

Ship Quality
Too small to have a lot of the fun things that many other ships have, however it was clean.
The options were pretty limited due to the small size of the ship.
Cabin / Stateroom
The room was not at all what we were expecting. The trip was a surprise for my husbands birthday, so I had reserved what I thought would be a great room with a balcony on the veranda deck. Not so great! The room was nothing special. It was small and had a tiny little balcony with an obstructed view. Very frustrating and WAY TOO MUCH $$$$ for what we got. We've been on a couple of other cruises and been in much better rooms for much less money.
Food and Dining
The food was good, but not outstanding.
Service and Staff
The staff was friendly, yet our dinner room servers failed to bring the correct orders several times.
