Traveled As: Large Group

Room Type: Suite

The ship is beautiful and elegant. There were lots of activities for all age groups.

Pros: beautiful ship

Cons: service overall was just ok not nearly as special as it used to be.

Recommends Carnival Elation? No.

Service and Staff
Seems like the staff was friendlier before the days of prepaid gratuities. Still nice, but not as good as before.
Cabin / Stateroom
We had a balcony cabin. It is amazing!
Lots of activities. Something for everyone.
Children's Programs
My kids didn't attend very many activities. Maybe the councelors should do a survey of activities that the kids would like to do, so that they appeal to more children.
Food and Dining
The food in the dining room was excellent as you would expect.
Ship Quality
Ship was clean and in good shape.
Ensenada, Mexico
Did a little shopping in this port. We did buy a leather bag. Their leather works are of very good quality and worth the money. Not much else worth purchasing. The city is not very clean and not really worth getting off the ship for otherwise.
Cabo San Lucas, Mexico
We went to lovers cove and snorkeled. We had a good time.
