Ship Experiences

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
Although there was lots of food, the quality was average. Guess it is hard to prepare great food for so many people.

Don't really enjoy playing games (bingo, trivia,...) or dancing. Also the shows were filled with very old songs. Something more modern or different (magician) would have been appreciated. Liked reading my books best. Would have enjoyed a tour of the inner workings of the ship

Cabin / Stateroom

Our room, on the lowest desk with a window, was much more spacious and comfortable than I imagined.

Cabo San Lucas, Mexico

3 out of 5
Sea of Cortez was very nice. Tour to San Jose was a bit boring. Afraid to eat at restaurants. Temperature in June is HOT! Wished I had time to actually go in the water.

Pros: Ship was clean, room was comfortable, able to find uncrowded places, movies in room

Cons: Too much "selling" - Art work, photographs, jewelry,..

Recommends Carnival Elation? Yes!
