Great Ship and People: Carnival Elation Cruise Review by bushmouse
Overall Member Rating
Great Ship and People
Destination: Western Caribbean
The Alabama Cruise Terminal was very easy access, park, and check in. Great job on the facility. The only downfall was returning. They definitely could use a bigger luggage area and more customs agents.
The past several cruises I've been on have been on bigger ships so I was not particularly looking forward to the smaller Fantasy class ship. The Elation had an incredibly smooth ride for it's size. Immediately upon boarding I noticed how beautiful the ship was, and how well it was maintained throughout. The ship had a lot to offer in the form of entertainment.
The staff of the ship reflected the spirit of Carnival Cruise Lines. They were warm, fun, courteous, and helpful. I truly felt they were glad to see me.
The only area I would recommend for improvement would be the buffet dining. The food was More good and the selection was okay, but nothing spectacular.
Overall it was a great experience, and I look forward to sailing on the Elation in the future. Less
Cabin review: 6CE-147 Ocean View
Nice sized ocean view cabin for the price. The bathroom was slightly larger than most ships I've been on. All in all a nice cabin.Read All Ocean View (6C) Reviews >>
