Carnival Elation Cruise Review to Mexico
Ship: Carnival Elation
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 10 years ago
We took the 5 day cruise to Cabo San Lucas over New Years 2007/2008. The boat seemed to rock a lot which may indicate that it was an older ship and has no stabilizers? Our overall experience was a good one with the exception of the location of our stateroom. We were in Cabin E-152 directly under the galley/kitchen. The noise coming through the ceiling at night was constant and VERY LOUD. It kept us awake all night. We complained to the Maitre'D who said he would take care of it, but never did. We also complained to the Purser's Desk and they said there had been SEVERAL complaints about the noise. Our advice - don't book on Empress Deck and also check out the location of your stateroom to make sure what you are under or over. The sound coming from above was inexcusable. Our mistake in not checking the location of our stateroom first. BUT - other than that, our overall experience was quite pleasant.

Pros: Nice ship and overall pleasurable experience; however, next time we would not chose to be on Empress deck as it is directly under the galley/kitchen.
Cons: Noise coming from the kitchen above our room
