MY first and only cruise on Carnival Elation

Sail Date: September 28, 2015

Reviewed: 1 year ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Suite

The junior suite (V25) was the size of a balcony on RC. There were stains on the carpet, the bathroom sink was chipped and rusted, the mirrors were never cleaned during our 5 day cruise. Entertainment was lacking, Food was alright nothing great. I had to ask for lemon for 4 nights in a row in the main dining room (Inspiration) I had to ask the head waiter 3X's one evening for lemon, never brought to the table, assistant waiter finally got the lemon for the table. It may seem like a small thing but you paid for this service. Staffing not the friendliest. All in all glad to get off the boat. Never again on Carnival.

Cabin / Stateroom
Time to update the cabins and reevaluate your
Embarkation and Disembarkation
You received paperwork in your cabin that indicated 2 different disembarkation locations. No need for the confusion, clarify for the people
Ship Quality
Read my review.
Onboard Activities
Not a lot to do.
The 2 comedians were great and the 2 musicals were very entertaining, that was the only entertainment worth watching.
