Default Elation

Has anybody been on the Elation in the past 6 months? Has it been refurbished? Does it have the Waterworks or just the water slide? Anybody have any recent pictures of the Penthouse Suites?

I have pictures of Ispiration penthouse suite. I think their sisters ships. I will tell you the room is very nice and well worth the money. We where on her in Dec. With help I could upload the pictures on the photo site on the board then you could see it.

Let me work on it. I'll let you know if it works or not. Like I said the ship are the same and the Elation was refurbished in the last few years or at least thta's what I read. The cat 12 suites are very nice. Don't worry it's worth it, at least to us it was.
If you can get the first or last suite that way you only share one wall with another balcony room.

Was on the Elation in December & she doesn't have the new waterworks yet, just the slide.
Had a great time though
Not sure when you are thinking of going? The ship is going up to Canada as accomodation for the Winter Olympics before the crossing.

I'm going on the Elation in March 2010 for a first cruise with Carnival. I've cruised twice before on Disney, and I know this will be different. This time is just my husband & I (kids are going to their grandparents )

Does anybody know what the smoking areas are on Elation? I can't find the rules in the Carnival website. I'm not a smoker, I'm just hoping to find out ahead of time which areas of the ship may be a problem for my allergies.

Also, how does the mini-golf work on the ship? Are the clubs/balls just there or do you have to sign them out?

How do towels work? I heard they are only in your rooms, and you have to take them with you to the pool areas?

In the dining room, how is drink service? Are they fairly quick to offer second drinks?

I think there is smoking allowed in the casino. The balls and clubs are usually close to the pool and you sign them out then go up and play. The towels are usually by the pool also, you sign them out. By the second night the drink staff usually knows what you are drinking. They have always been really good with refills and bringing drinks from the bar.
Have a great time!!

Thanks!
I'm looking forward to the cruise. It'll be nice to see how different it is.
