I have cruised with carnival cruises on a few occasions and have typically enjoyed myself due to them being early twenties friendly. Although I didn't select the Elation ship personally, I still expected a good time due to past ... Read more

We took a cruise on the Carnival Fantasy for a family reunion. The length of the cruise for perfect for first time cruisers. The ship is older and you tell by the decor. The cabins are okay, the rooms could have been cleaner, I could see ... Read more

I chose this cruise because it was the cheapest and I had kids, in laws, parents....basically a large group of people traveling with me. I had been on this ship before and knew it wasn't a luxury cruise. However, I was expecting ... Read more

This is a very smelly ship. Cigarette smoke was everywhere and they even allowed it in a common area. There is a bar that you must walk by and sit next to for many of the activities and this is a smoking bar. You will reek of smoke all day ... Read more

Our third Carnival cruise. We sailed on Conquest, Magic, and Breeze. Last cruise was two years ago and it was very similar to the first. Both were 5-star experiences. Sorry to say the cuts by Carnival over the past two years dampened ... Read more

I liked the short itinerary, not too long nor too short for our first time sailing without the kids. We liked the idea of a long day at Nassau and going in June would ensure nice, warm weather. We found embarkation to be a breeze! We ... Read more

Affordable cruise. The worst thing is the pool is horrible - tiny and people stuffed in shoulder to shoulder. Very unappealing I did not go near it. Same with hot tubs. Not sure how 2000ish people are expected to use the pool. Food in ... Read more

We've been on 17 cruises, 10 of which were with Carnival. The Elation is new to Jacksonville, so we thought we would give it a try. I have to say, out of the 10 Carnival cruises, even with this being an older, remodeled ship, we were ... Read more

We went on the Carnival Ecstasy on June 15. When we got to the port, our car overheated and broke down. This could of been an absolute nightmare for our family of five. Instead two wonderful men by the names of Jeff and Michael came to ... Read more

My friends (three couples in all) and I chose this cruise because it was leaving from our city. Convenience is a good thing. Embarking and disembarking could not have been easier. This is the easiest port I have gone in and out of. We ... Read more

Have cruised on Royal Carribbean, Norwegian and Celebrity for 10+ cruises. This was our first cruise on Carnival and was selected because it left out of Norfolk and did not entail having to fly to a departure city. Embarkation: could ... Read more

The entertainment was limited. Nothing started for the adults until 9. The comedy club was not open for 2 nights in a row, so they were really crowded.....The piano bar is not worth even trying. It was the same style music throughout the ... Read more
