Fantastic Cruise Vacation!

Sail Date: March 01, 2013

Reviewed: 4 years ago

Traveled As: Family (older children)

Room Type: Oceanview

Unlike all the problems other Carnival Ships are having right now this ship had no problems that I know of. The ship itself was in excellent condition\, very clean\, well taken care of while we were aboard. The staff in the dining rooms and room porters were all very nice and would do anything you ask. The food was very good\, especially in the dining rooms. Entertainment was amazing. So much to choose from with plenty of time to relax too! Only one college aged sons had a cabin together\, 3 of them\, and I was told the 3rd bed was a trundle bed....needless to say their trundle bed is not big enough for a full grown man...they had to bring in a rollaway\, so beware of trundles...they are fine for small children but not for adults.

Pros: Excellent service and staff!

Cons: Nothing!

Recommends Carnival Elation? Yes!

Ship Quality
Food and Dining
Cabin / Stateroom
Good but beware of accepting a cabin with a trundle bed in them. Trundle beds are only good for small children or small adults. Not meant for full grown people.
Service and Staff
Our dining room waiter (one of them) was Leandro--he was fantastic. Our room porter was Felix...also fantastic!
