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 lot...buy 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.

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
Food was amazing!! Only complaint would be long lines, but that comes with being on a ship with 2000 people.

There was a variety of entertainment offered, which was nice. We enjoyed what we participated in.

Service and Staff

Staff was amazing! no complaints!

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
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.

Cabin / Stateroom

3 out of 5
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.

Pros: The Serentiy Deck

Cons: The party/excessive alcohol environment

Recommends Carnival Elation? Yes!
