Ship Facts: Carnival Elation Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Carnival Elation Deck Plans
Just Okay
Elation out of Mobile, February 17-21, 2011

The Rock Show, musical was good. Miniature golf was fun, except having to check out clubs two decks below putting green.

Room M15 was large, huge closet, big bathroom, very clean. The portholes were nice to wake up to.

The quick grill on Tiffany was great, wonderful omelets, outstanding Ruben, and super turkey wraps.

The chocolate buffet was disgusting, chocolate cheesecake that tasted like day old mousse.

We had anytime dining in the forward dining room. We consumed 4 dinners, 1 lunch, and two breakfasts there. The portions were small. Because I was requesting gluten-free, my dinner order was taken 24 hours early. But the food was rarely what I ordered. Most of the problems were on the second and third evenings, we had a waiter from the Philippines. He was very much a newbie. Our meal wasn't served at the same time, the food was cold, our water glasses were consistently left empty, and we had to ask and wait forever those two evenings for a dessert menu.

In Cozumel, we decided to venture to the "Money Bar" on our own to go snorkeling. It was so easy. We left the port area and there were taxis all lined up, with the price in dollars on a sign to take you were you wanted to go. The snorkeling was all it was advertised to be. The restrooms were gorgeous. We had a few sodas, and lunch. The angus burger was great and the first time we felt fed in days.
