Carnival Elation Cruise Review to Mexico
Ship: Carnival Elation
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Traveled As: Family (older children)

Review SummaryOverall, enjoyed the experience. Teenagers loved it all especially the hottubs. Pool too cold to swim, ship and rooms too air conditioned to feel comfortable without sweaters. Would have liked a few more hours in port. Didn't like the college age students who were loud, foul mouthed, drunk and throwing up in hallways. Perhaps, stewards could patrol halls and set some type of penalties for them. Didn't like being asked to tip matre-d or tour guides on pre-packaged tours. Enjoyed the port tours, spa and the relaxation. 5 nights was just the right amount of time. Very easy getting on & off ship.
