A great summer vacation

Sail Date: July 09, 2007

Reviewed: 9 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Oceanview

Positive experience, people got along great with each other. Crew was friendly and offered good advice. Dinning room staff was terrific. Always reliable food recommendations and excellent pacing of food items. And singing & dancing (waiters) added to the fun!

Pros: Excellant dinning room service

Cons: Picture taking by the ships photo staff - a bit excesive

Recommends Carnival Elation? Yes!

Great entertainment. We did both the general audience & adult comedy events. Only down side ~ changing $5 for round of miniature golf was a bit much.
Children's Programs
We didn't have kids with us - but what we heard from parents & saw ourselves the kids program seemed to be great.
Ship Quality
Food and Dining
Food mostly terrific. Dinning room staff terrific. We choose the late dinning and enjoyed the adult setting. But we found that other dinning venues were nice as well. 95 % of kids on board were great and well behaved. Thanks to their parents efforts.
Cabin / Stateroom
Great stateroom service (towels, turn down, cleaning). Tight fit between closet & coming going to bathroom,
Service and Staff
Cruise director (Stuart) was great
Cabo San Lucas, Mexico
It was OK - but if you stay in the Harbor area - it's just like being in the USA
Ensenada, Mexico
More like a typical Mexican town. Nice downtown area. Clean, safe & friendly environs.
Don't Miss: We did the LaBoufadora Tour it was good to see the areas away from ship/downtown.
