5 Night Western Caribbean (New Orleans Roundtrip)
Sail Date: August 20, 2012
Ship: Carnival Elation
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 5 years ago

This was our third trip on the Elation, and we are scheduled again to go next month. We like the ship because it is smaller and very easy to find your way around. We liked the location of our cabin and because it was a cabin for handicap persons (we are not handicapped) it was somewhat roomier than the regular cabins, however it was beat up. Food was excellent, both in the dining room and Lido deck. Our chocolates delivered to our cabins (VIP) should have been delivered earlier in the cruise. Too full to eat the delicious chocolates on the last afternoon/evening. Very friendly staff at guest services. Also enjoyed dining room staff, especially our head waiter \"Mehmet\" from Turkey in \"your time dining\".

Cabin / Stateroom

1 out of 5
Closet door very badly scratched and poorly painted. Stateroom door hard to close (came open twice).

Pros: Being on the Empress Deck -- close to the Atrium

Cons: Standing in line at the omelette station -- one person orders 5 omelettes at a time

Recommends Carnival Elation? Yes!
