There were three of us in the room, so one of us had to sleep in the pull out bed. It was tough (because it was 3 of us) but after the first day we leaned to acclimate ourselves well to the "tight" conditions. Read entire member review >>
The cabin was large and efficient. The shower was the largest we have had on any cruise. The only problem we had was making sure the floor drain stayed open so that water did not go onto the bathroom floor. We had plenty of drawer space and hangers in the large closet. As I mentioned above, Yoga kept our room very clean and gave us great towel animals. Read entire member review >>
Everything was in perfect working order. Shower pressure and temperature were flawless. Beds weren't as comfy as I'd remembered but maybe I'm just getting old. We had plenty of room for one over-packer, one average packer and 2 kids. I'll answer any questions anyone has. Read entire member review >>
Our cabin was very clean and remained cleaned throughout the whole cruise. The drawers were a bit worn and it was difficult sometimes to get them open and closed. There was only 1 working outlet, but on day 3 the outlet stopped working and we had to call maintenance to come look at it. It was fixed and back up and running very quickly. The closet doors had to be pushed closed hard just so they would stay closed. The volume on the TV was awful, sounding like the speakers were blown. The water pressure in the shower was awesome. The biggest problem we had with this cabin was ALL THE NOISE. It sounded like things were hitting the ship right outside our window during the night, there was a constant machine humming, and it sounded like things were being dragged across the floor right above us. We tried to sleep with the TV on but that didnt help. There were plenty of sleepless nights! Read entire member review >>
Cabin was... a cabin. You shower and sleep there. It's a cruise, so if you're really worried about how nice your cabin is maybe get a suite. There was always a cool little towel animal every evening and the attendant did a great job of cleaning without disrupting our stuff. The bathroom was a little dated but it worked fine and had enough room for the three of us without having to pack things up after every shower. Read entire member review >>
Our cabin was an oceanview room, nothing to fancy. They weren't the most beautiful rooms, with their orange/pink early 90's paint scheme. The magnet on the door that kept it open was broken, so it didn't stay open with the sway of the boat. But for a ship as old as the Elation, that's to be expected. The rest of the ship was slightly dated but well kept, and still breathtaking for first time cruisers like ourselves. Read entire member review >>
cabin could use some serious cleanup and update.. some one opened an exploded a soda and its got dots of dried soda in the ceiling crevices..and one of the main cabin transoms. drawers were loose and the mirror didn't hold shut which on the two rough days at sea a little more creaky.. electric in the bathroom missing a "socket" and the other didn't work.. the cabin electric only had one socket. room has all kinds of touch ups. paint, and much needed updating.. suited for our sleeping needs. the window was so dirty on the outside it was difficult at times to look through definitely could not take a photo through it.

Our cabin was clean minus a little dust above the bed, and very spacious, bigger than we thought it would be. By looking at the photos you would think the shower was small but it was big enough for my husband and I to shower together which is what we like to do to save water. Te water pressure omg was sooo amazing I want that type of pressure at home. Do not sit on the comode and flush it at the same time lol you will feel as if your being sucked into the bowl. The towel creations left on our bed nightly were just cute. First we had a sting ray, then an elephant, then either a pig or dog, then a big heart on our last night which was the same day we renewed our wedding vows. Read entire member review >>
The cabin was very comfortable for just 2 occupants with the bed configured as a king. With the annoying corner boxes removed we were able to actually walk on both sides of the bed! Read entire member review >>
We loved the cabin....small but functional. It was only the 2 of us so we had plenty of room to move around. Plenty of closet space for us, bathroom is small.....but who needs a huge bathroom to just pee & take a shower......overall we basically just loved our little getaway.....

Run down - the cabinets and drawers didn't work well. Mold spots on floors in bathroom. Too close to the smoking area (upstairs) - hallway should not smell of smoke from another floor.
Horrible and constant banging of metal on metal noise from outside the window. Only noticed at night when trying to sleep. Read entire member review >>
Our cabin was E69 and was right next to the lobby and guest services. This made for an easy day and a slightly noisy night! Our cabin attendant was Eddi and he and his staff were excellent! We thought with our prime real estate location on deck 7 at the end of the hall, we would be quick to jump off the boat. Little did we realize, they sealed the door by our room so we had to go all the way around deck 7 to get into line. After that hiccup, we were off the boat in 30 minutes and on our way home!

The cabin seemed to be of a typical size, but this is a 25 year old ship, so there's definitely wear and tear on the furniture. Drawers stick, cabinets don't line up when you can shut them, and our medicine cabinet would not open without practically ripping it off the wall. The bed was fine, but there is this huge obstruction on one corner of the bed where the life jackets are stored. I chose the side of the bed by the window, and I'd have to climb over this thing every night. I also bumped my legs and knees on the footboard every night, which gave me awful bruises. This ship definitely needs an overhaul. Read entire member review >>
The cabin was larger than expected. The beds weren't overly comfortable but not the worst I'd ever slept on. The water in the shower was odd. It would randomly go from hot to cold for no reason. That made my normal 5 minute ish showers more like 2 minutes! Read entire member review >>
the room is a good size for a couple, we had a king. there is enough storage in the closet area , and the shelves was where we put our folded clothes, and hung some. suitcases were in the open closet. the desk in the room has enough space in the drawers for things. in the closet is a safe. there is no iron, blow dryers etc. no alarm clock, why do you need one? every one has a smartphone with time and alarms. only need an alarm on the days you get off the ship for ports and debark. the tv doesn't have too many channels, we kept it on the ship channel. why do you watch tv when your on a great cruise, get out and enjoy , watch tv at home! the bathroom was great. plenty of towel racks, always had plenty of hot water, the soap and shampoo dispensers were nice. never ever smelled any thing like sewer! everything was always very clean. loved having it cleaned twice a day, and chocolates at night for turn down service.

Nice room. Spacious, Good View out the window. It got a little stuffy at night even with the thermostat all the way down and air all the way open. would bring a batter fan next time just to get some air moving. Read entire member review >>
Cabin was great and exactly what I book it. Our service person Randy was the nicest and most informative person we met. The crew made sure we have enough space, set up additional bed for our son. We traveled when my kids had their birthday, they set up room looking like it is a surprise form the Carnival members ( i paid for it ), but this made my kids feel so special.

Spacious cabin for 2 people.Unusual shower temperature...water was hot, then cold, then hot, then cold...never was warm.Evidently, crew members in the galley at 3 a.m. didn't realize guests were trying to sleep in cabins below them. Will definitely not book cabins in this area again.After commenting that the cabin was warm, we were advised that the cabin temps are kept between 71 and 74*. Evidently cruisers are no longer able to regulate the comfort of their cabin. The airflow from the ceiling vent has also been disabled. Read entire member review >>
My cabin was comfortable and our steward, Iryl was very attentive. The cabin had more storage than I remembered from previous cruises - a big plus.The bathroom was a little outdated. The lighting was very dim. The porcelain on the sink was badly chipped. Great shower head (want one for my house). Read entire member review >>
The stateroom was small but big enough for 2. Our room attendant (Asep) did a great job and was very nice. The room was quiet and comfortable. Next time I plan on booking a Suite. They were much larger and more luxurious. Read entire member review >>
E125 was an ocean view. Loved having an actual window!! I know it isnt any bigger than your normal cabin but it did seem like the shower was bigger than our last cruise where we had an interior. We were pretty much directly under one of the main dining rooms and the galley but only once or twice did it seem very loud and this was not while we were sleeping I would definitely book this cabin or one like it again in the future!!!! We loved it!!!!! Read entire member review >>
My wife said that I did a good job on picking our cabin and I think it was just luck. I was concerned about this cabin due to its close proximity to the kitchen and elevators but those were not issues at all. Our cabin was very quiet. We never heard anything from the kitchen above and never a sound from elevators or stairwells. The hall noise was minimal. The TV was a little quirky but we werent there much and we usually left it on the ships information channel anyway. The water pressure was amazing and the water tasted fine. The hot is just that, HOT! Our bed was very comfortable but my youngest daughter(17) was worried about the fold down bunk. Those worries went away quickly as she slept like a baby and didnt roll out. The window was larger than I thought it would be and the ledge wide enough that my kids would sit on it and watch the water. This was a nice cabin. Read entire member review >>
Upper Deck 218Room has a bit of engine noise and changes in direction provide some vibration.Closet doors need some adjustments as well as some paint.Not a lot of traffic in this area, so not a lot of passenger noise. Read entire member review >>
All the way at the back of the ship. VERY loud, if we had been about 10 cabins further front, the noise was not so noticeable, but right where we were, the motors were VERY LOUD. Not the best in terms of quiet room.
However, quiet in terms of foot traffic, nobody was walking by our room back there, so that may be a bonus. Read entire member review >>
We had great stewards that kept our rooms clean. The shower head kept coming out of its holder, which was bad because it scared you and got everything wet, but good because it meant the water pressure was WONDERFUL! Read entire member review >>
E202 was very quiet with the air on low. Never heard a peep. My sister was next door in E198 and could hear club noise on two nights... it was so strange, noise in her room nothing in mine. I loved the room, would be good for parents with two under 13 aged kids. Also good for singles or couples. I only disliked the temp control for air being in the ceiling. I was too short to reach and didn't want to constantly bother the room steward so I ended up standing on my bed to adjust it each day which was a pain. Other than that loved the cabin and didn't miss having a balcony much at all. Read entire member review >>
: Nice sized room, larger than expected. The bathroom was also a good size, but the shower was tiny! Two separate closets to hang clothes and five shelves was nice for both of us. There were also four smaller drawers at the desk/sitting area. Nice flat screen TV, just wish it was tilt-able as we could not see the movies from a laying position on the bed (had to sit up to watch the TV). Was VERY disappointed that there was not a refrigerator as that is something we've become accustomed to on other cruises. It was a nice location while at sea (as we were on the same level as customer service, excursions desk and main piano bar), but horrible the day we left and arrived back to the US as our deck was the embarkation and debarkation deck (didn't expect that on deck 7, it's usually much lower like on deck 4!!) Had to go down a floor, walk the hallway, take the elevator back up to our floor, then walk back down the hallway again to our cabin...QUITE IRRITATING! We also had to deal with the sound of chairs moving every night. Crew swore that the dining room above us should have no one in it after midnight, but there were and it was an every night occurrence. Even though I don't enjoy hearing the toilets flush from above, I think from now on we will make sure we're below another cabin, not a public room. Read entire member review >>
E65 is a great location for ease of entry, closeness to elevators and guest services. Handicapped amenities in the room great except would be hard to get in and out if handicapped person was alone to open and close the door. Atrium can be noisy especially if kids are playing games.

Great view out of the window- we had a large picture window (not port holes) looking out. We were on the starboard side. It's amazing to see a sunset at sea standing in the cabin. Read entire member review >>
