No Problems...Just Situations!: Carnival Elation Cruise Review by aliwas
Overall Member Rating
No Problems...Just Situations!
Destination: Western Caribbean
Food: Not as great as we have gotten on other Carnival ships. Pasta dishes were very bland and dry. Usually had to ask for extra sauce in dining room and always had to add salt. Prime rib on last night was mostly fatty, very little meat. Lobster More tail was mushy, had to be sent back(others were fine).
Room: TINY!! Probably because we had two boys in there but we were really cramped. Unable to empty either of their suitcases because drawer space very limited. I will say the bathroom was decent size with spacious shower.
Service: very friendly and helpful, always smiling. Room was always clean and plenty of clean towels in bathroom. Dining servers were very accommodating with special request. Kids never went to camps so cannot rate these.
Overall: Debarkation was easy, we waited till ship had cleared out before leaving and lines were minimal. On the road by 10:30. Would cruise from Mobile again, but not on the Elation. Seemed really small compared to the Conquest I have cruised on before. Less
Cabin review: 6DE194 Ocean View
E194-a 4 person room with 2 twin beds and 2 upper bunks. My 14 yr old was too tall for bunk so I ended up sleeping up there most of week. Only 4 small drawers so unable to empty 2 of our suitcases. There was room under one of the bunks to leave suitcases laying out. Two decent size closet spaces with many hangers. A small vanity with mirror in room also. the bathroom was decent size with large shower, water was always hot even if 3 other had showered before you. Room stayed very cool, and always clean. Never noticed much hallway noise though we do take noisemaker for sleeping.Read All Ocean View (6D) Reviews >>
