The ship was pretty nice for being over 15 years old. Everything was always neat and tidy and the crew was always polite and friendly.

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
Food wasn't too bad. We did your time dining and loved it. Ate late a few nights and early others. The waitstaff was AMAZING! We sat in the same 2 sections for most of the trip and loved it! They spoiled us rotten and always went above and beyond.

The comedy show we great but kinda short. Kind of disappointed in the amount of free things to do on the ship. There were plenty of chances to drink\, gamble and shop.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
We didn't meet one single crew member that didn't greet us. Most greeted us by name.

Cabin / Stateroom

We had a main deck room in the front of the ship. It was a good size for what we needed it for (sleeping). Would have been better with a mini fridge but ah well.

Pros: Fun\, Easy

Cons: Not enough activities

Recommends Carnival Elation? Yes!
