Carnival Elation March 20160

Sail Date: March 19, 2016

Reviewed: 1 year ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Oceanview

Cabin: M122

We're gold members of Carnival and I have to say the Elation was not that great to me. It's an outdated ship. It definitely needs to have more pools for adults. The food was not as good as the other ship's we've been on. The shows were pretty good.  The embarkation was horrible! I will never go out of NOLA. It takes forever and the debarkation was the worst! We waited almost 2 hours for our zone to be called.

Cabin / Stateroom
Our cabin steward was great, always kept our cabin clean, however the cabin itself was old. Drawers didn't close all the way and you can tell by the scent it was just old.
