Ship: Carnival Elation

We were fortunate to take two friends that had never cruised!  It's a great experience to see things from their perspective.  This ship is older and has retained the over the top flashiness that we expected.  Our friends were wowed!  The stewardess was perfect and the still do twice daily service.  Guest services was friendly and helpful.  We stayed overnight in Nassau instead of going to Freeport.  Understandable with Matthew having just devastated the islands.  Nassau was back on their feet but not without scars.  Food on the Elation was good and plentiful.  Service in the dining room was a little less personal than what we have seen before but our friends were impressed.  They have now caught the bug and have booked their future cruise.

Inside on veranda deck. Awesome service and access to outside deck was handy.

Ship Tip

All veranda deck cabins are priority boarding. Didn't realize this until we went through security.

Pray they come back from Matthew soon.
