Much needed cruise!

Sail Date: June 11, 2012

Reviewed: 5 years ago

Traveled As: Family (older children)

Room Type: Inside

Had a great time! It was alot cheaper to fly into New Orleans compared to Florida, about half. Ship was beautiful, very clean, great food and always something to do that was fun for my daughter and myself. Ship was smaller than our last one but the cruise was shorter also, that's why.

Pros: Great entertainment, crew, food, a close port was nice

Cons: Ship was on the smaller side

Recommends Carnival Elation? Yes!

Ship Quality
Very clean and well taken care of ship. Better than the last one we were on.
Food and Dining
Food was great as normal.
Cabin / Stateroom
The room was our biggest yet. Large bathroom too and it was just an interior room.
Service and Staff
Staff was great! Customer was always first. Buffets stay open past closing for late comers. That was nice.
They had a great, perky staff that kept the fun always going. Lots of good ideas at little games to play: Trivia, scavenger hunts and such.
