5 Night Western Caribbean (New Orleans Roundtrip)
Sail Date: May 14, 2012
Ship: Carnival Elation
Cabin Type: Inside
Traveled As: Singles/Friends
Reviewed: 6 years ago

This was our third group cruise on Carnival. Overall we were happy with the staterooms, the cleanliness of the ship and service. Our staterooms were on the inside which, again, proved to be quiet. They were a nice size and well serviced for the most part. The ship is very clean and well maintained. All of the personnel with whom we came into contact were very nice and went out of their way to provide good service. The dining options in the main dining room were varied and appealed to everyone. It was a nice cruise.

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
Overall the food quality is very good. Options in the main dining room are varied and appealing to most people. We would like to see either a ban against children for the late seating or a specific seating area for people with children away from those of us who would rather not be around young children or dinner.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
The Carnival Elation is a very nice ship. Clean, easy to navigate and lots of options for entertainment or quiet time.

Cabin / Stateroom

3 out of 5
We were happy with our staterooms with the exception of never meeting our attendant and one room was not as well serviced as the second.

Pros: Cruising is easy and very convenient when traveling with groups.

Cons: Both of our port days were shortened.

Recommends Carnival Elation? Yes!
