Review summary

Loved it. I was actually more impressed once I got on the ship than prior to it. It was my first so I wasn't sure what to expect. I was told that the Elation was one of the smaller older ships, so if I had fun on this little ship, I know that the other bigger/ newer cruises would be even better. I already have my 2nd cruise booked, and it's on Carnival Magic.

Ship tip

motion sickness wasn't that bad but for me staying busy with activities helped, don't overpack because debarking takes some time and if you're carrying your own luggage off of the ship then it's going to get tiring
