Verified Review
5 Night Western Caribbean (New Orleans Roundtrip)
Sail Date: August 20, 2012
Ship: Carnival Elation
Cabin Type: Inside
Traveled As: Family (older children)
Reviewed: 5 years ago
Food, outside of the dining room experience, was just fair at best. There are NOT enough public restrooms throughout the ship, and they are NOT well-kept/clean when you can find one. When you feel as though you must go back to your stateroom to use a facility something is wrong. A stopover in Progresso is NOT a good port. But, the attendants of the ship's crew were wonderful and made the experience and cultural information gained very nice.

As above\, poor public restroom accessibility and lack of cleanliness.

Cabin / Stateroom

3 out of 5
The attendants were incredibly good!!

Pros: Wonderful service and attitudes by the crew\, in particular our stateroom attendants and the waiters/waitresses in the Imagination dining room.

Cons: There has to be a better way of handling the disembarkment procedures. Carnival recommends you have them take your baggage the night before (that worked great) but the frustrations of the \"zoo\" atmosphere awaiting your turn to leave the ship (prioity to those who carry their own luggage) is awful.

Recommends Carnival Elation? No.
