BEST BIRTHDAY EVER
"Port close to home with easy access. Girls trip to celebrate our birthdays. Wanted to see the Bahamas as we both have seen Mexico. Price was great and reasonable. 2nd time cruising on this same ship. I love Carnival..."Read More

Very Disappointed

My husband and I have done many cruises and this was our third carnival cruise. The food was awful and cold breakfast and dinner regardless of eating at the tiny buffet or dining room. It seemed like there wasn't enough crew to take care of the guests on board. The ladies room on the pool deck only had two stalls and one was broken from the moment we got on board. The pool was rusted and not ...

Not a Good Experience

Let me first start off by saying we departed the port 3hrs late!!! I already had reservations when arriving at the port because the boat was smaller and looked older. The boat’s stops were Amber Cove and Grand Turk. As we were attempting to leave the port someone had a medical emergency (I had no problem with that but will explain my frustration). We set sail on Sat and were at sea on Sun. ...

Mid winter 50 TH birthday cruise on the Carnival Elation, Some good, some bad and some real ugly. For the record this was my families 8 TH Carnival Cruise since 2013 and our 12 TH cruise overall. This ship is in desperate need of the dry dock scheduled for next month. I was surprised on how much rust was on the exterior of this ship but not all was bad. We had two rooms E-52 & E-56 and also we ...

We were just on Carnival Elation for a 5 night cruise. Overall the cruise was good, as it had some things we really liked and some things that were kind of lacking. We did not have any problem with our cabin and our room attendant was attentive and got anything we wanted, i.e. extra pillows , two buckets of ice, and a chair so I could sit up if needed to with my bad back. On the positive note, ...

Overall, we had a great trip! No major issues that ruined our fun. The only issues we ran into were on the second day of our cruise. The service in the Imagination dining room was insanely slow and items that were "to order" were served incorrectly. Thankfully mistakes were corrected but it is worth noting. I had heard the previous cruises had been rough trips and had unhappy cruisers, so I'm sure ...

Chose cruise for price and destinations. Easy embarkation. Having lunch by noon. We'd visited Margaritaville in Grand Turk and looked forward to returning. Had not been to Amber Cove. Pleased. Zip line $20 unlimited. We did not do excursions, finding them pricey. Had Super cruise director/Jen.. Quirky and fun!!! Rico/Imagination waiter excellent. He sang 2 nights. We requested his section each ...

So disappointing

What a joke for a cruise. So disappointing. Rooms were clean and servers in dining room were excellent but: Two days on the water and the pool was closed all day for maintenance. Obviously the stabilizers weren’t working as the ship was moving from side to side and people were sea sick. Others complained of this in 2019. I ended up falling and got a huge bruise out of it. Went to see the ...

Family cruise for Christmas vacation. We had four cabins and eleven family members. Eight adults and three children. Cabin service was not up to standard. We came back from a beach excursion with wet towels. We all took showers and went to dinner. When we came back to our room after dinner, the room was not straightened and all of our wet towels were still sitting on the bathroom floor. I ...

This was the most rockiest ship I have ever been on. The boat rock to hold trip. Every one was talking about this boat I did not enjoy this trip. I am glad I made it off safe. This make you not want to go on another cruise again. They charge you even if you didn't have any services. The food was ok , not the best like we have had on other cruises. Things for the children to do was good. I didn't ...

We drove down from the Atlanta area on Saturday, November 23 and checked into the Country Inn and Suites. We reserved the Cruise Park and Stay package, which I highly recommend if you drive in. We wanted a little down time before we sailed away on Monday for our Thanksgiving cruise. We played Putt-Putt, shopped, went to the beach, etc. Great hotel, great staff. I recommend going to Preacher Bar ...
