Disappointed that the Elation did not have more to offer the passengers. Did enjoy the program to celebrate the Veterans on Veteran's Day. But usually promote Carnival and now not so sure, it just didn't measure up to all the others I have been on.
We loved this cruise! We love sea days, so having one in the beginning and end works perfectly for us. We like the smaller ships so we don't have to fight long lines, etc. - and we don't have to walk a day and a half to get from one end of the ship to the other! :-) Guy's Burgers and the Cantina was a really nice addition, and we definitely enjoyed them! Looking to book our next one!
I had a wonderful cruise. It was my second time taking this exact same cruise 2 years in a row. Love how thrifty it is, and I loved the renovations. I also love the cruise director Kevin. I will likely go again next year again!
I had a blast on my first cruise. The only three thing I believe need to be improved upon. The ventilation in the casino for those of us who do not smoke, the food options for vegans, and music selections during guess the song 70s, 80s, 90s.
I’ve done several carnival cruises in the past and they are always a great time! This was the first ever cruise for my boyfriend and we are planning for another very soon! We had an incredible time and can not wait to do it again!
We are ready to book again!! This was a great experience, from A to Z. We absolutely loved the room. We felt closer to the water on deck six than with other cruises. And the room was spacious enough to feel like a home away from home. AND minimal motion. We slept like babies. So we are ready for our next Carnival Cruise!! Christmas?
The seas were rough, but I liked it, it rocked me to sleep. Slept later, than I ever do, at home. The ports were beautiful and the weather was good. The ice cream machine was broken almost the entire time and that aggravated my husband. He says he doubts he will ever go on another.
as for our time we did have a good time. we spent Tuesday night in the Blue Iguana and our bartender, Ordalis was AWESOME, so much fun and it was my daughter in laws birthday, he knew how to entertain and serve.
Horrible cruise line! Would use a different cruise line and travel some where than going on carnival!! Most of the staff could not speak English. The only activity was gambling while on boat unless your a drinker!
Wished I had cancelled the cruise when I was informed of ship changed. It was like the chefs on this cruise never cooked before nothing I mean nothing had flavor.. however I did enjoy the ice cream ... but all fat girls love ice cream!
