6 Night Baja Mexico (San Diego Roundtrip)
Sail Date: May 27, 2007
Ship: Carnival Elation
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Traveled As: Family (older children)
Reviewed: 10 years ago

Starting at embarking the ship we were treated rudely by employees of Carnival. Paid $90 for the unlimited soda cards for my 3 kids and the were ROUTINELY ignored when the would go to get a drink. Employee of the Internet cafe looking at inappropriate material every time my family was there. Food quality was ok but consistently cold and found hair in it on numerous occasions. Swimming pool was so small that it was a joke. Will NEVER sail on CArnival again.

I did not hear one good remark from any passengers about this stop. I am not sure why they even bother to port there.

Pros: ....... Sorry I cannot think of a thing

Cons: Rude staff, Hair in cold food, VERY dated decor

Recommends Carnival Elation? No.
