A OK cruise

Sail Date: November 03, 2007

Reviewed: 9 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Inside

It is a good cruise for the first timers but not for those who have been on different cruiselines.

Pros: met some wonderful people at dinner

Cons: no seating choices when you have lunch in the imagination room even though there were many non-occupied tables

Recommends Carnival Elation? No.

Ship Quality
small ship, gym layout is poor as you have to go through a spa??? The ship is clean and decor is tacky.
Food and Dining
The food is mass-production type of quality. Not enough variety and has no different culture flavours. Dining times & ambiance is good.
Cabin / Stateroom
The room is roomy and comfortable but it's noisy. The bathroom is a little stinky.
Service and Staff
some of the staff are very friendly but most of them are not. The information staff need to be speak fluent English. Our dining waiter and assistant and our housekeeper are excellent.
The comedy show is great. The activities need some improvement.
Ensenada, Mexico
dirty and boring. Shopping is lousy.
Don't Miss: nothing
Cabo San Lucas, Mexico
Clean and relaxing. Shopping is not very good.
Don't Miss: nothing
