Carnival Elation
5 Night Baja Mexico (San Diego Roundtrip)
Sail Date: January 07, 2008
Ship: Carnival Elation
Cabin Type: Inside
Traveled As: Singles/Friends
Reviewed: 10 years ago
There were too many designated smoking areas. The casino allowed smoking yet had no enclosed walls so the smoke wafted all down the promenade. they allowed smoking in the library of all places! not enough quiet mellow places to read and soak up sun. there was either loud music and speaker announcements or smoking!

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
great food but not enough vegetarian entre options. they only offered one per meal whereas they offered 4 meat options.
