Could have been better

Sail Date: July 01, 2012

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Inside

If you can't use stairs, this is the wrong cruise for you. ThE elevators would just sit on floors and often skip the one you were on. A good 5-10 minute wait most of the time or you could get lucky and ride it in the opposite direction. Overall, not a bad cruise, but compared to our cruise on the Carnival Conquest, it was like a different cruise line.

Pros: The first two days were great in the dining room\, great cleaning crew\, and room by the pool.

Cons: The last three days in the dining room were bad\, the buffet may have been better.

Recommends Carnival Elation? No.

Ship Quality
Food and Dining
The first two days were as great or better than you would expect on a cruise\, but it went down quickly the last three days. I would not have gone to a restaurant and paid for the food that was served. Major difference 5 star to two or three star.
Cabin / Stateroom
Service and Staff
Our waiter was overwhelmed. Service could have been better at the dining room\, but was great everywhere else.
There was not the same. Number of options available as on other carnival cruises.
