Sail Date: Apr 2016
Cabin: Interior

Was not very elated with the Carnival Elation. We chose this cruise because of the itinerary, 4 ports we had not been to yet. Embark was quick...and pretty painless. They need a new cruise director that might add some lido sea day activities.....absolutely nothing going on....quite frankly...could hardly understand what he was saying when he did come on the speaker.....quite boring. Food was good in the dining room..pizza was so so...morning breakfast, not sure what the scrambled eggs were (actually not even edible) so ask for REAL eggs and they will give them to you....

Service was good...Was very surprised to find out they didn't change the sheets in the cabin the whole 10 days! Didn't ask, just assumed they were changed only to find out near the end, that was not the case.

Excursions were catamaran snorkel sea turtle in Barbados and Zip line in St. Kitts, both were fun and went off without a hitch. Our cabin steward was great...Basically the ship needs the 2.0 done. The entertainment was lacking seriously. Usual sing and dance show...we did have a few laughs when we went to the ventriloquist show. He was quite funny...
