It was so much fun, it was mine and my boyfriend's first cruise and it was a great experience. There was so much for us to do on the ship. The gym was a very decent size, we were happy with it.

Awesome cruise but a lot of small issues

Overall, excellent cruise. We will plan to cruise again with Carnival but be better prepared for Carnival's changes. I'd recommend Carnival in the future, particularly those with smaller children.

Price of the cruise was worth the money we paid. Overall, the family had a great time. Everybody was happy they went. Food was OK. We mostly dined in the dining room and had a flex time. The flex time allowed us to meet several great and wonderful people on the cruise.

it was ok we had a nice time but not enough places to stop at. if we had more islands to visit I think we would enjoy more. the staff could have been more nice to the youth.

The People(Crew members) Make All the Difference

Although we enjoyed the Cruise immensely. Don't know if Cruising is the best avenue for our future family trips. Family reunions, on the other hand would be great. Don't have to see all members all the time. Just enough to avoid bringing up past family issues.

Cruise was okay. Cabin we had was shaking the entire trip. Unable to move us to another room. Lack of sleep caused our trip to be somewhat miserable.

Overall a great trip. My niece who was a first time cruiser had a great time. I also had a great time. The cruise director Kevin made the shows fun. The comedians were funny also. The food was good. We loved our dining room experience.

The highs and lows of the MIrabella's first cruise ;)

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Family (older children)
For our first cruise we chose the right voyage for our family. Jax Port is pretty easily accessible and we found our way around nicely. Besides two minor incidents with staff, we couldn't be happier with the entire experience! We look forward to future cruises. Steven and Pamela Mirabella and family

Best Cruise on the Planet

Best cruise ever taken, will definitely do it again. The staff on Carnival Elation is so wonderful. They are hardworking and so considerate. The waiters Domagoj, Ricardo, and Nestor were a cut above the rest! So funny and enjoyable and so very hardworking and attentive. the steward Kadek was unbelievable in meeting all our needs!

Mediocre at best

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple
Overall we enjoyed the time away. The ports are fun though we would have rather went to Nassau as originally planned before they switched it to Princess Cays. Not sure if we will travel with Carnival again as the cost people pay for cruises you should get impeccable service and amenities.

Not my best cruise!

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Family (young children)
I'm not a frequent cruiser but I enjoy them. I felt lukewarm about this cruise and the overall experience. My take away is that next time, I'll do more research and find a ship/cruise that will provide the cruise experience I've come to expect.

This was a first time cruise for our kids and they absolutely loved it. We will definitely be cruising with Carnival again. Next time I will make sure to pack more clothes though, because we seemed to be changing a lot!

Elation Ship ruined our 16 yr anniversary.

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple
Really disappointed. For what we paid we should have had all the bells and whistles, fun, staff interaction, amazing food, like our friends did on all their carnival Cruise. I don't think I can trust anyone else that says a cruise ship is amazing due to our ship.

Pleasant Surprise because i didn't expect much. Overall nice experience even though some things could be better. Kids had a good time and we were able to relax. Overall good, but would go on bigger ship next time.

Older ship

We enjoyed the trip but we could tell the ship was older by the wear and tear we noticed. Staff was friendly especially the room steward. Next time we may try a newer ship
