Getting off the ship was horrible. It took several hours of 2000 people all waiting together and no one let us know why.

Bucket List by hoopsmom34

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

I never wanted to be "stuck" on a ship. A cruise never interested me. I was dx with cancer in 2016, it makes you re-evaluate your life. I made a "Bucket List" Best vacation ever! The staff and crew are friendly and welcoming. I can honestly say I was spoiled! Now looking to book my 2nd cruise. BTW God is good, I am a cancer survivor.

My Carnival Elation cruise with family 8/27 to 9/1 by mintuchak

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Family (older children)

Everything was good except for the beverage package rules, Drink package is very expensive, and it should not be compulsory to buy for all adults of a cabin. I have been on other cruise and I bought only for one person. Why in this ship it is mandatory to buy for all?

Our granddaughters had a great time but we were disappointed with the room steward and guest services desire to help us.

The ship was smaller and did not really have all the activities list (basketball hoop, large pool in center of ship) etc. However the cruise director was fun and made the ship fun .

Spectacular, Amazing, Incredible Cruise to the Bahamas by hbarrett81

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Family (young children)

This was our first ever cruise and after the experience that we had we will definitely be booking a lot more in the future. Words just cannot describe the amount of joy, fun, and happiness this cruise gave to our family. Our children really enjoyed the ability to not have to be stuck with us the whole entire time, they had their clubs (Circle C and Club O2), as they always call them, to go to anytime they wanted to. They clubs had all kinds of different activities they children could go and do. It was great to have family time and couple time all in the same vacation. I will be recommending a carnival cruise to all of my friends and family and anyone that will listen. I will definitely a repeat customer for sure.

Wonderful Cruise by bheatherb33

Verified Review

Thoroughly enjoyed my cruise, service and suite was awesome. Pool was a little small. Half moon Cay was beautiful and Nassau beaches were nice. The meal at half moon needs to be improved. I would recommend Carival and this ship. I will definitely be taking another cruise with Carnival.

Wonderful Short Cruise by Rickeyd53

The disembarkation was okay but could have been better. In my opinion it could have been better and easier since they do this every week.

Don't Sail on the Elation by rburton1228

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Family (older children)

Comedy was great. Magic show, crafts, build a bear, pool, arcade were all very underwhelming. only 1 small pool for 3k people is awful. only 1 set of cornhole boards caused lines to wait to play for over an hour at a time. The food was no where near as good as your other ships. Getting rid of 24 hour FREE room service was not a good call. The internet connection is lowsy for the price. The best thing about our cruise was the islands and the comedy show.

The ports are not that great (but I more prefer the green mounts done of St. Thomas) and the ship is a bit out dated but if you’re looking for a shorter bargain get-away this cruise is a great option.

Amazing Experience by emmyjohns

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Singles/Friends

My best friends and I were searching for a cruise that would be convient and fun for just the three of us. We picked the perfect ship and ports! I have been on cruises two other times and honestly this cruise beat out the other ships I’ve been on. The others were bigger ships too! I felt that we were able to tackle all the activities we wanted within the 5days we were on the Elation. The staff remembered our names everyday and were so accommodating ! Benny and her crew from the Your Time Dining was spectacular ! Our cabin steward Yuhda was such a breath of fresh air with his welcoming smile and his speedy cleanup. Angel the pizza man was sweet and so nice to the guests even when they didn’t deserve it! A few guests were downright rude and demanding and he remained calm and kind. Hannah that handed out towels to the guests on the serenity deck had one of the best smiles and conversations! Overall I am thrilled that I attended this xruise! The band was amazing and I had so much fun playing trivia and watching the musical shows. I even learned how to salsa! I got a massage, my first one ever and she made me feel so comfortable! The food was amazing!!!! Karaoke was a blast and the crowd was having a ball! I even won a trophy for winning Charades! The ports were amazing. My friends and I decided to walk all of Nassau that we could. We walked to the Queens Staircase, the fort, the shopping area, the Parliament, to restaurants, Senor Frogs, and the straw market, as well as alongside the beach. When we went to Half Moon Cay we relaxed! We rented out floating beds and just floated around and enjoyed the sun. I even bought a snorkel head gear and was able to see beautiful fish and sea life! I loved every minute of this cruise and am definitely going to schedule another one on the Elation soon!
