Very nice. Elevators very slow and were down one day. Pool was small. Definitely need an adult only pool :)

Ship Quality

3 out of 5
Ship was small and rocked a lot. We were in room U2 at the bow of the boat and it was very loud and we felt every wave. We'll be staying towards the middle of our next ship

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
We had a port hole room. Small but all we did was sleep and shower in it- perfect for us 2.

Pros: Relaxing, excursion was great!

Cons: Pretty rocky.. Elation was a small ship though, never got sick- thank goodness for scapolomine patches!

Recommends Carnival Elation? Yes!
