Finally a time to relax

Sail Date: May 01, 2013

Reviewed: 4 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Oceanview

The ship is a smaller older vessel and was clean/well maintained but the beds are not soft or comfortable.

Pros: The shores excursions were wonderful

Cons: the beds are uncomfortable and the food isn't the best

Recommends Carnival Elation? No.

Ship Quality
Food and Dining
The casual buffet didn't open till 6:30am and for early risers there isn't anything available. The only other options past dining times is pizza and hamburgers which were awful.
Cabin / Stateroom
Uncomfortable beds.
Service and Staff
Despite the bed being uncomfortable our room staff went out of the way to try and add extra padding to the mattress for our comfort
There isn't a lot to do on the ship unless you are a bar/drinker. Alot of clubs and alcohol but very few other activities. The comedy shoes are good.
