Carnival Elation Cruise Review by redneckdiver
- Sail Date: October 2016
- Destination: Bahamas
The evening dining was great, but the food selection seemed a bit less exciting than our previous Carnival cruise, with smaller portions, which on the other hand means you can try more selections without stuffing yourself.
The cabin was excellent, but somehow we ended up with some nasty water backing up out of the shower drain a couple of times. It wasn't much, but enough to get around the sink area. We just laid a couple of towels down and pressed on.
Although I will by no means exclude Fantasy class ships from future trips, we'll definitely be preferring the larger ones. The larger boats seemed to offer more activities during sea days.
As far as Matthew is concerned, those of you who cancelled, especially before you could do it and get a refund, are fools. Carnival is not going to risk the liability of losing hundreds of millions on losing a ship and its passengers. We were nowhere near the hurricane and except for a few minor swells, the ship was completely stable and the weather was great. We ended up with 1 extra day on the ship with a $100 credit and 25% off our next cruise. I'm tempted to book hurricane season every year now.

Key WestIf you haven't been - go! If you love the LGBT scene, pub crawling, museum tours and such - go again! We will most likely avoid it in the future. For us it was just too much like any other high traffic US vacation spot. We even likened it to "Gatlinburg on the Beach."View All 1,834 Key West Cruise Port Reviews
