Wouldn't recommend.

Sail Date: July 03, 2008

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Oceanview

All my friends love to cruise. Was expecting food to be excellent, but was not impressed. Lobster one night was good, steaks however were not. Could eat unlimited food, but didn't want to because of poor quality.

Pros: Good service.

Cons: Older ship, cheesy entertainment, Not impressed with the food.

Recommends Carnival Elation? No.

Ship Quality
Was clean, just not very modern.
Food and Dining
Salad bar and fruit good. Just not impressed with hot selections.
Cabin / Stateroom
Bed very comfortable, room small. Don't recommend being on main deck on end of ship, can feel motors.
Good variety for all ages. Some shows a little cheesy.
Children's Programs
Seemed to have plenty of activities for children. Don't have children.
Service and Staff
Staff were very friendly.
Cabo San Lucas, Mexico
Recommend going on an excersion. Long walk from harbor to beach. Can take water taxi but Carnival warns against it.
Don't Miss: Lover's Beach
