Carnival Elation

June 2017 - Carnival Elation to Caribbean - Bahamas

Not the Best

Our favorite part of the cruse was our excursion in Nassau. The ship was older but elegant. The staff was friendly and accomidating. However, they were overworked. We stopped going to the diningroom after the second night and a 2 hour wait to be seated.  We then waited another 30 minutes for our appetizers. Local people from our departure port were loud and disrespectful. Overall, the cruise was okay, the ship was okay, but leaving from Jacksonville was NOT okay. Don't do it. Just don't.

Carnival Valor

June 2016 - Carnival Valor to Caribbean - Bahamas

Beautiful, Elegant Ship!

This was our third cruise and definitely our best. The overall theme of the Carnival Valor is patriotic which was truly beautiful. The crew and staff were wonderful and eager to do anything and everything they could to make our cruise special. The food in the dining room was adequate but not the best. However, the ambience of the restaurant itself was lovely. Most times we ate at the buffet which was the best we have ever had. Overall this ship was perfect and we hope to go on the Valor again.

Carnival Paradise

July 2015 - Carnival Paradise to Caribbean - Western

Paradise on the Paradise

We were unsure of what an experience on Carnival would bring us. Not to worry...it was incredible! The Paradise is an older ship and a smaller one but it has so much to offer. Most of the activites on the ship were not for my husband and me (we needed rest and relaxation) but no one could complain about being bored. The ship was clean and the staff and crew were so  friendly and helpful.

An adult only retreat was where my husband and I chose to be most of the time. Serinity was wonderful with 2 hottubs, plenty of chaise lounge chairs and an incredible unobstructed view of the ocean. It was wonderful!

There was only one negative on the ship...the handrails on deck were very dirty. It looked as if they were never wiped down. Also, the safety rails beneath the handrails had hair wrapped around them. When we sat at the on deck dining area this was prevelent every where you looked. Please Paradise crew...make this ship perfect and clean those things!

summertimefun's Tips

Carnival Elation Carnival Elation - Embarking was a nighmare, but debarking was even worse. We were headed like cattle at 8:00 a.m. into various parts of the ship to await our call to disembark. We waited 2 hours. I have never had to be out of my cabin by 8:00 a.m. There are so many other ships to choose from...choose another.
Carnival Valor Carnival Valor - The serenity decks were great but they need more pool area. The pools were always so full of people that you could't even get in.
Carnival Paradise Carnival Paradise - If you have never purchased a shore excursion, please consider! Our catamaran trip to a private, all inclusive island was incredible!!!! Passion Island offered us the perfect get away. From the beach chairs to the authentic Mexican buffet to the rum punch...delicious!
