It was horrible. The operation of the ship made everyone on board sea sick. Will not use this ship again.

Review summary

I'm sorry but this Carnival cruise ship needs to put out to pasture. My husband and I didn't like the excuse that the entire trip on the ship there was a lot of back and forth. My husband and I were on the Royal Caribbean during the hurricane and it didn't compared to this ship. We experienced the sea sickness since the beginning of the cruise and gradually gotten worse all the way to the end. Never again Carnival Elation.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

I have cruised on Carnival Sensation and that experienced was awesome. This ship was the worse in food and drinks. Drinks didn't have any alcohol and the food either had someone hair or it was not cooked with any taste.

Onboard Activities

During the trip, the ship was rocking back and forth. Not really a lot of people came out to celebrate.

Did not do an excursion here.

Amber Cove (Puerto Plata), Dominican Republic

The excursion on land is cheaper than purchasing it from Carnival. We were able to do all the excursion for a half price and still got the experienced that we enjoyed.

Grand Turk Island

4 out of 5
We had an amazing time on the beach but there is not a lot of excursions to do there.

during all my Carnival Cruises, I have never seen a bunch of people that wanted off the ship including us. Usually, on other cfruises the announcer has to tell them to please disembark cause the people thoroughly enjoyed the cruise.
