Excellent ship for a 5 night cruise!

Sail Date: June 01, 2012

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Oceanview

This was a great experience for a 5 night or less cruise. Food quality and selection is outstanding and open at all convenient hours. Plenty of activities to do around the ship. Shops are always doing promotions and the pictures they take are actually very enticing on formal night. I would say that this ship would start to feel too small after 5 nights and I started to get bored with everything going on. That said, I had a great 5 nights on the Elation and would recommend it to both couples and families looking to relax and eat well!

Pros: Great food quality and selection, excellent staff.

Cons: Pool was small, have to book certain excursions through carnival instead of independently

Recommends Carnival Elation? Yes!
