5 Night Western Caribbean (New Orleans Roundtrip)
Sail Date: February 06, 2016
Ship: Carnival Elation
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Cabin Number: E131
Traveled As: Family (older children)
Reviewed: 2 years ago

The Elation is a very tired and outdated vessel. It seems that the stabilizers,  shafts, or propellers were out of balance or damaged due to the amount vibrations through out the vessel. Making many people on board sick. The food and service for dinner was horrible, After having dinner arrangements to be seated with all of the family our seating was changed at check-in of course this started a string of problems while on the cruise with the dinning staff.   

Food and Dining

Horrible, the food was like eating old freezer burnt left overs. After being seated for dinner we would not see the waiter for 8-10min then we will place our drink request (another 10min) then the waiter will come back to get our meal order and we will not see the waiter again until our meal was brought to our table and the meals were cold and very bland.

Ship Quality

The cabins while clean were out dated looks like they are from the 70's. The vessel had a very bad vibration, The seas were not bad for the amount of roll and vibrations (stabilizers seem not to be working correctly. )

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Clean, nice size. But outdated ! And no provisions for making coffee or hot tea in the cabin.

Ship Tip

If the vessel is older than five years old find another cruise liner.
