The food was good, but not outstanding.

The options were pretty limited due to the small size of the ship.

Service and Staff

3 out of 5
The staff was friendly, yet our dinner room servers failed to bring the correct orders several times.

Ship Quality

1 out of 5
Too small to have a lot of the fun things that many other ships have, however it was clean.

Cabin / Stateroom

1 out of 5
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.

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

Cons: Our room

Recommends Carnival Elation? No.
