The Carnival Elation is an older cruise ship and it shows. However, it was very clean and the staff was very friendly. One of the high points of the cruise was the live shows. Both shows were great, we even saw Let's Rock twice. There were many activities to choose from and the kids enjoyed the arcade as well. The food was ok the dessert was bland. The 24 hour pizza place never had pizza ready and there was always a line. The room was small. There were two adults and two kids in the room. The trundle bed was on the floor and the pull out bed was directly above it. This made me and my son nervous because we just didnt know if it was going to be sturdy. Fortunately it was ok. Overall we enjoyed the cruise and will cruise again, but not on the Carnival Elation. The Carnival Valor is much much nicer and larger.
