The ship Elation was amazing. It was my first cruise and it was a positive and enjoyable experience. I enjoyed every day at sea and at port. I was impresed with the customer service and communications. It was definetly a First Class vacation.

Pros: The energy was very live and everyone seemed to be having fun

Cons: The rocking of the Ship and the limited time at port

Recommends Carnival Elation? Yes!

Food and Dining
The formal dinning was very good. I was impresed with the menu and the selection. The service was very professional and attenative. The buffet dinning was also very good. I like the wide selection of food and the hamburgers were delicious.
Cabin / Stateroom
For a first time experience on a cruise it was what I expected. The state room was comfortable. It was a bit small, but that is what is expected on a ship.
Service and Staff
The staff was very friendly and accomidating. I was impressed to see how many of the staff were from different countries. Overall I did not a single bad experience with the staff.
Ship Quality
The layout and condition of the ship was impresive. It was easy to navigate around the ship and there was plenty of space and seating for all the events and activities.
The entertainment and activities were well planned and coordinated. I enjoyed as many of the activities as I cared to. That was the benifit of the schedule to attend activities at my leasure.
Cabo San Lucas, Mexico
Cabo was a great experience, despite porting after the huricane. I had a great time on a jet ski, shopping, and drinking tequilla at Cabo Wabo
Ensenada, Mexico
My Sister and I had a great time at a very local restaurant. We ate authentic mexican food and the locals were very friendly.
