Ship Info: Carnival Elation

Activities: Great activities for guests planned daily from hairy chest contest, guest talent show, karaoke, comedy shows, and live bands playing through out the ship. Service: Amazing service from the DJ, waiters, stewards staff. The entertainment staff was super friendly and professional. room service was always fast and very friendly. the photographers on the ship remembered teh guests and even said Hi when we saw them on their days off. Even the DJ, Dj Paul from Peru, at the Jekyll & Hyde night club was awesome and would play the best music to get everyone dancing. We would go to the club every night because the music he played was so good and he was not bad looking either ;)

Port & Shore Excursions: Port and shore excursions were overpriced.

Travel To Port of Embarkation: We live in San Diego so the port was minutes away and took less than 30 minutes to get on the ship. Stateroom: Riviera

Dining: Imagination dining room was great we chose the "your time" and that worked out great. We never had to wait in line to be seated and we would go eat dinner whenever we wanted. We also got to be seated with random guests form the ship and we loved it because we got to meet new friends. Children's Clubs: N/A Entertainment: The entertainment on the Carnival Elation was great. Like I mentioned earlier the entertainment staff went out of their way to get everyone to dance, conga line, and they were all up beat and having a great time with the guests. Again I cant mention how amazing the DJ was, he knew exactly what to play and had the best personality and smile I've ever seen.

Disembarkation: It did take a long time but it was pretty smooth once we got called off the ship. We actually didnt want to leave the ship since we had such a great experience.

Cabin review:

R160 the room was outdated with the old TV and it didnot have a hair dryer. We actually had a great ocean view and didnt feel the boat move at all. The hallways were quiet and our room was right next to the elevators. The bathroom was decent but the water gets really hot, so be careful.
