We enjoy the Elation By: cruiserbrianj
We had a cabin with an ocean view. The size of the rooms is more than satisfactory as we had two adults and a 3 year old old and I didn't feel crowded. We typically don't spend a lot of time in the room so the size was fine. The decor is somewhat dated but I wasn't shocked or dismayed by anything. Size of the bathroom is adequate and shower water was always hot and the pressure was good. The cabin was cleaned twice daily and we had no issues with any of the staff.

Never again! By: sheila.kelley
It was nice. Very clean. A little dated. They need flat screen TV's. The TV was super old. Very few channels. The bed was roomy and comfortable. The lines were nice and soft. Our shower had some issues. We had problems getting the water to a comfortable temperature. Our toilet made a horrible noise every time we flushed, much louder than our neighbors. Our steward "Libert" took very good care of us.

First of Many Cruises By: Harry and Rosemary
We had an outside cabin with a window on the Riviera deck. The room was bigger than I thought, comfortable bed. We slept very well each night.I am a bigger person and the shower was fine with great water pressure. A/C worked great. Hair dryer did not work, but we brought one from home. Our Steward Nengah was fantastic!

Fun December Cruise By: Kasmir
Cabin was small, and it had that aggravating box in the corner, but all-in-all was OK for two people. Does need a face-lift, but was clean and adequate. Air was nice and cool and water pressure in the shower was good.

Cabin E255
Aug 2015
Our cabin was exceptional, a corner in the very transom of the ship with a view overlooking the wake. Some vibration but it didn’t bother us at all. The storage locker forces you to step over the bed to get to the porthole. My kid loved to curl up in the recess and close the curtain. Cabin service was superb and although the grout in the shower floor was darkly stained I personally witnessed some guy scrubbing it with some noxious liquid and wire brush so I know it was clean. The antique CRT television was so bad the letters and graphics on the screen were hard to read but we weren’t there much to watch it. The cabins are pinkish and look dated but are comfortable and functional with ample storage. As others said, bring a power strip—serious outlet shortage in these cabins and we brought several devices that needed charging.

Carnival has changed! By: billyde
Very dated...I took Lysol after my last cruise experience of getting the virus...but you should have seen the bottom of our feet..they were filthy from the carpet and some of our clothes could not be worn because floor dirt got on them.

Carnival Elation By: Vemnox
The Good: - Loved the quiet location at the back of the ship. Never heard anything from the hallways. - Very clean; serviced twice a day. The Bad: - The room is OLD. 26" Zenith tube TV, chipped sink in the bathroom, poor 90's style color choices, etc. - Room only for the bed and basically nowhere to walk - Window was dirty and needs a pressure wash - Shower pressure was like an old man with a prostate problem; barely a trickle The Ugly: - The noise while going up/down the Mississippi is NUTS. Like I don't mean a rumbling I mean it sounds like a crane is picking up and dropping box cars over and over. - The bed was harder than concrete. You think I'm kidding? Wait 'till you wake up the next morning. My back STILL hurts.

Cabin R 32
Nov 2014
This cabin was roomy for two people. Our steward was excellent and we returned several times per day to a clean cabin. The decor is somewhat outdated but the shower had plenty of hot water, shower gel, and shampoo. We brought a power strip as there is only one outlet in the cabin. The tv is old but the picture was fine. It had the three major networks and a couple of old movie channels. The AC worked fine in our cabin. We both like it really cool and we were comfortable at night.This cabin is on a lower deck and in the forward section of the ship. We do not get seasick so it wasn't a problem for us but on the rough sea day we could really feel the movement and saw the waves against the window. This cabin was pretty quiet. Only one occasion did we hear people above us. It was very convenient on port days as the gangway was only one deck below.

Uncomfortable bunk mattress. Tiny pillows and poor tv quality. Not too noisy and good cabin service. Like the bathroom size better than Serenade of Seas. Good closet area and laundry was handy.

Elation may 2012 By: nickle58
M257 category 6A....aft...about 3rd from the very back. Convenient to Tiffany buffet area. Nice window. Expected a couch but there wasn't one. No big deal. Had some problems with too much hot water but were able to figure it out eventually. Not sure if we were competing with our neighbors for the cold water or not. 3 decent sized closets, nice safe accessed by swiping credit card. 4 drawers.

Of the four nights, I only had towel animals the last two nights! Simple thing, yes, but I was looking forward to those! Our room was always tidy though so on that I couldn't complain at all. Overall, it was very satisfactory.

Good Time on Elation By: PaulaTimothyCollazo
Great location but we prefer the back of the ship. Upper deck has no clubs or bars above it so it is very quiet.

Our room on the Riviera Deck was just as we expected. Quiet, no problems with temperature or noise. We were almost all the way aft on the port side.

Cabin R204

First was Calica, a commercial port a few miles south of Playa del Carmen. There is nothing at the port except a few vendors with the usual trinkets for sale. In the afternoon, there was a Mayan dance group that was entertaining and pictureque. We chose to take the ship's excursion to Tulum. I highly recommend this tour if you have any interest in Mayan history and seeing well preserved ruins on a beautiful Caribbean location. My wife, who is not a history buff, thoroughly enjoyed learning about the Mayan culture. Our tour guide,Cesar, spoke Spanish, English, and Mayan. The Mayan language sounds nothing like Spanish, and has more roots in Asian languages; as do the physical traits of the Mayans. If you take a video camera, there is a nominal charge of $4.00. It is well worth the fee to take videos. To really get a feel of the size and beauty of the site, a video is the best method of recording the magnitude of the ruins and the beautiful views of the sea. The tour lasts about four and a half hours. At the end of the site visit, Cesar met us at the bus with a cold, wet facecloth, a bag of chips and a bottle of water. A DosEquis could be purchased for a few dollars from the bus driver or you could buy five for ten dollars at one of the restaurants at the site.

Cabin R100
Jan 2011
CABINS R100, R88, R76 We reserved three cabins with large windows - one for my parents, one for my brother and one for my husband and me. The cabins were on Riviera deck, with a few cabins in between us so we weren't on top of one another constantly. The cabins were a decent size and as long as we stayed out of them, they were cleaned in the morning and at night. Closet space was very good, bathroom size was satisfactory and everything was pretty clean. The in-cabin TVs were huge and old but got a good selection of channels. Like I noted before, I am a bit spoiled after we cruised Holland America, but I do have to note that the toiletries provided were sort of skimpy ... no moisturizer, no conditioner, etc. Next time I will remember to pack my own. For the price of $230 per person, the cabins met all our expectations.

Nov 2010
Perfect! It was plenty big, had a king size bed, little counter/desk thing by the bed to place stuff on, for the ladies, do their hair and make up. You could have all your lights on- or there was a light over each bed area, or there was a "ship light" it was like a light in a corner that illuminated this plastic ship scene. Window was huge. Bathroom was just fine! Our room was always clean- it was fantastic!!
