Default Carnival Cruise Pools and Hot Tubs

All you have probably seen the TV commercial where all the cruise passengers are dressed in blue and keeping a pre-set ship schedule for everything from sunbathing to dining. Well, I love cruising and we have always gone with Carnival. I do like the set dining times, since we have the same wait staff and dinner partners each night.

The one thing that I really wish that Carnival would change is the pool and hot tub hours. They are not open early enough in the mornings for those of us who get up early and should be open more at night for those of us who would love to swim under the stars. I know they have to clean them sometime, but a few more hours a day couldn't hurt.

I would love to see some light music on the deck in the evening hours as well, where you could just relax and have a drink. I am not talking about the louder, party music at midnight , which we also enjoy.

I am taking my 13 yr old daughter on a Carnival cruise in March - our first! Overall how do you like it? Have you ever sailed on the Elation?

We have been on the Elation many times. I happen to think that it is a great ship. Big enough to have plenty of things to explore, not so huge that I feel "lost at sea". I'm not a fan of the mega liners that feel like a hotel, but I get seasick easily now, so the really old, small ones don't work for me either. Elation is just right! Last time we were on her, some friends went along and they loved it, too.
Have fun!
Marty

The Elation is my favorite!

Good people sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.

Courage and perserverance have a magical talisman; before which difficulties disappear and obstacles vanish into the air.

Pick your company wisely! Hang around people who are going to help you become all God created you to be.
