Room Type: Inside

Nice ship - freshly redone

Recommends Carnival Elation? No.

Ship Quality
Ship was plenty big without being overwhelming\, public areas (including bathrooms) were kept very clean and neat.
Food and Dining
I was disappointed in the food this trip. Before it has been excellent\, but everything I had was mediocre this time\, except the baked alaska and hot chocolate. The areas were nice though.
Cabin / Stateroom
Small stateroom\, but enough room for what we needed. The room was very comfortable.
Service and Staff
The worst experience I've had. The waiters acted \"put-out\" that I wanted something to drink or needed a condiment. During one meal\, I actually left the dining room because the service was so terrible! It took 20 minutes to get mustard for the table. The stateroom staff did a good job but rarely spoke.
