Sail Date: Nov 2019
Cabin: Extended Balcony Grand Suite

The positive is that the ports of call we loved ... Amber cove and Grand Turk. Our cabin we had was a grand suite u98 . Room was clean and comfortable. Out cabin Stewart was great along with the dining staff . On the down side. Food on buffet was fair at best. Terrible selection. Dining room was hit or miss. 2 nights paid for an upgrade for surf and turf. One was good. The other was half the portion size. The last 2 nights dinner was good. Casino was way tight . Couldn't hit a nickel. . The worst part was the ride. This was my 5th carnival cruise with the last one being through hurricane Michael. This ship rocked horrible the whole cruise. Won't be going back to Elation.... But still like carnival. I think this ship needs overhaul to stabilize it better . Going through hurricane Michael was smoother than calm seas on the Elation

Cabin Review

Extended Balcony Grand Suite

Hate the new look since the drydock. Suites look very generic. No elegance to them anymore
