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

My wife and I were looking for a nice vacation and booked this cruise kind of at the last minute. This is the first cruise we've taken by ourselves in many years (without kids) so that was nice and made it different than other cruises ... Read more

This is our third cruise with Carnival. I will say by far this was my favorite ship. We have sailed on the Carnival Dream and the Sunshine. The Sunshine was our least favorite. There were no seats to sit outside in the sun and it was ... Read more

The primary reason we chose this cruise was convenience; we live in the Norfolk, VA area. Though the cruise got off to an auspicious start (the ship came in several hours late due to the Harborfest celebration at Town Point Park), it ... Read more

Disclaimer: Please keep in mind that this is my first cruise and I think that might make me a bit more forgiving. My husband and I chose to cruise out of Charleston because it's only an 1 1/2 hour drive from our house. This was to be our ... Read more

This was our second cruise and first on Carnival. I was a little reluctant to book because of this ship being the oldest in the fleet. My wife and I were pleasantly surprised by the look and feel of this fantastic ship hence the name ... Read more
