5 days is the perfect length!

Sail Date: June 11, 2012

Reviewed: 5 years ago

Traveled As: Family (older children)

Room Type: Oceanview

Even though the Elation is an older ship, it is still in great shape. We enjoyed late seating for dinner since we traveled w/ teenagers. Always something for the kids to do, which left time for me and my husband to unwind and relax by the pool. Great trip!

Pros: Food and service

Cons: Had trouble with the air -conditioning in 1 room.

Recommends Carnival Elation? Yes!

Cabin / Stateroom
We booked three rooms for our cruise. One of the rooms had little to no air the entire trip. Thankfully it was the boys room, and they tolerated it with a
fan. I am 45 and would have DIED if there had been no air in my room!
Ship Quality
Food and Dining

All three shows were top notch, especially the last "Legends" show!
