  3. Carnival Elation
The staff aboard the Elation could not have been nicer and each worked very hard for all guest. We stayed in a grand suite and the room was ample in size and comfort. No FOX news and not much on TV all together but the fun is outside the room. Buffets during the trip never changed which was a bit boring. Lots of food but nothing too healthy. Should have a salad bar to offset the calories but nothing like that offered on this ship. Entertainment was great but no disco to dance off some calories. Very disappointed in Freeport. I've been going there for the past 35 years but have not been there is many years and sadly their economy is gone. All the major hotels everywhere are vacant and unoccupied and just rotting away. Very sad to see a beautiful island vanish. Nassau was just the opposite. Still growing and their economy is flourishing. Overall its a blast to sail off and the Elation with its shortcomings is still worth the fare.

Good for the $$
