Ship Facts: Carnival Elation Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Carnival Elation Deck Plans

Our Carnival Cruise for our 26th anniversary was out of New Orleans. This was the easiest port ever to embark! In less than an hour from the hotel shuttle dropping us off, we were on the Lido eating lunch with DOD in hand!

The Elation is a beautiful ship, the decor is so pretty and the ship is very clean. It is a smaller ship, Fantasy class, and we have sailed on the Fascination so we were familiar with the layout. The crew was wonderful, very happy and friendly and helpful.

The only thing I did not like about the cruise was Cozumel. The vendors on the streets were very aggressive, to the point that it made you uncomfortable. Progreso was great, the military presence was kind of disturbing, but the excursion to the ruins was wonderful, our tour guides were great and the bus was comfortable.

Disembarkation was as easy as embarkation! We ate breakfast on the Lido with friends while waiting for our zone to be called and it was not long at all.

I would do this cruise again but book an excursion or stay on the ship in Cozumel.

New Orleans is my new favorite city to visit!
