Recommends Carnival Elation? Yes!

Ship Quality
It as hard to get around with a stroller in certain areas of the ship.
Food and Dining
We liked having my time dining. We enjoyed the ability for the kids to eat the foods they liked.
Cabin / Stateroom
The staterooms could use some updating and remodeling.
There were only two real shows on the ship and one was more of a meet and greet from the crew. I wish there had been more current shows with upbeat music and acts.
Service and Staff
The staff was very friendly in all areas except the dining room.
Children's Programs
My children loved all the activities. I brought all 5 kids and the ranged from 17 down to 2 years old. There was something going on for them or they made a friend to hang out with for the day.
