Sail Date: January 07, 2008

Reviewed: 9 years ago

Traveled As: Singles/Friends

Room Type: Inside

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!

Pros: the constant food

Cons: too much smoking!!!!

Recommends Carnival Elation? Yes!

Ship Quality
mostly great though a little liberace in decor. i would like to see a classier decor and not so over the top.
Food and Dining
great food but not enough vegetarian entre options. they only offered one per meal whereas they offered 4 meat options.
Cabin / Stateroom
the singing and dancing shows were too cheesy las vegas like. could of used more variety.
Service and Staff
Cabo San Lucas, Mexico
the hawkers were so aggressive it was hard to look at anything. too touristy. the beach was nice.
Ensenada, Mexico
not attractive and the blow hole area was too touristy.
