Review Summary

This was our first cruise so I don't really have anything to compare the quality of the ship to. It met our expectations.

Ship Experiences

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
Cafeteria quality food in Tiffany's restaurant. The formal dinning room quality was okay.


3 out of 5
Lots of activities, however, few of them were of interest to me. The nightly shows were okay.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
All the staff was very friendly and willing to please.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
The elevators were a little slow and I heard people who said they had cruised before complain that they were not as fast as other ships they had been on. The decor reminded me of a casino. The crew kept the ship very clean.

Cabin / Stateroom

3 out of 5
Very plainly decorated. The reception of the complimentary in room movies was poor, and there were not many channel choices.

Ports Of Call

Ensenada, Mexico

3 out of 5
Took in the blow hole tour. Not much to it and you have to make your way through the gauntlet of vendors to see it.

Cabo San Lucas, Mexico

3 out of 5
Spent most of the day on the waverunners in the bay. They are a kick. Cabo is a lot like other parts of Mexico I have visited. Would rather spend time in Hawaii. Might go back for the fishing.

Pros: Crew

Cons: Complementary in room movies

Recommends Carnival Elation? Yes!
