10 Year Anniversary Cruise

Sail Date: January 01, 2013

Reviewed: 4 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Oceanview

Overall, we enjoyed relaxing on our cruise. The food was amazing and we liked eating with the same two couples each night. The entertainment was fun. The only thing we didn't enjoy and I guess didn't realize was how much partying/excessive alcohol consumption would be present. Seemed that was pushed a alcohol and go to the casino. That's just not our style. We love the relaxation scene and really enjoyed that there was a separate 21 and over deck for peace and quiet. However, there could be better monitoring there.

Pros: The Serentiy Deck

Cons: The party/excessive alcohol environment

Recommends Carnival Elation? Yes!

Ship Quality
Beautiful ship and the staff was amazing! Constantly working to keep the place clean. Only thing we would say needs to be cleaned more is the jacuzzis.
Food and Dining
Food was amazing!! Only complaint would be long lines, but that comes with being on a ship with 2000 people.
Cabin / Stateroom
Our stateroom was fine considering that's what we paid for. However, I think it would have made a difference in our decision if we had known it would have been so loud at the front of the ship when docking.
Service and Staff
Staff was amazing! no complaints!
There was a variety of entertainment offered, which was nice. We enjoyed what we participated in.
