It's better than "poor" but less than "good"

Sail Date: August 04, 2016
Ship: Carnival Elation
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Cabin Number: R49
Traveled As: Family (young children)
Reviewed: 1 year ago

It was a disappointing ship. The pool was not large enough for the number of passengers. The salt level in the pool was extremely high, leaving a coating on your skin. There was also nothing exciting going on around the pool.There were not enough for the children to do. No ice skating, rock climbing, bungee jumping, a really small arcade. The shower in the cabin was nasty. It was larger than most but there was heavy mold in the grout.  It needs a heavy bleaching. The shows were outstanding and above average. The food was also pretty good. I probably won't sail on Carnival again.

Cabin / Stateroom

Cabin was ok. Beds were really comfortable. Bathroom grout was horrible.

Ship Tip

The memorable part of the trip was swimming in the beautiful ocean in ports. Everything else was unmemorable.
