Carnival Elation Cruise Review to Caribbean - Bahamas
5 Night Bahamas (Jacksonville Roundtrip)
Sail date: October 08, 2018
Ship: Carnival Elation
Cabin type: Oceanview
Traveled as: Couple
Reviewed: 2 years ago
Review summaryI will definitely cruise again, most likely with Carnival due to their excellent costumer service and spacious standard rooms. I will definitely not cruise again in a ship that allows smoking in so many public areas though. I have a history of cancer and radiation to my lungs, so the smoke was a major issue.
Food and Dining
Imagination Dining Room
Beautiful, spacious, and the dining staff were incredible.
Tiffany's Lido Restaurant
Overcrowded due to all of the restaurants ( aside from main dining ) being next to the Lido restaurant.
Great price for very generous portions.
Their Pizza is SO yummy!
Guest Services / Shore Excursions
My experiences at guest services were 50/50. Some wonderful, other times I felt spoken down to in a rude manner.
I am completely shocked that smoking was allowed in the entire casino. This really ruined it for me.
Mark Twain Library
Nice and quiet! Beautiful design and there were books/ games whenever we needed to hide from other passengers.
Service and Staff
Cabin / Stateroom
It's one of their smallest ships , BUT the tradeoff is less people. There was usually a quiet space in one corner or another .
