Carnival Elation Cruise Review to Mexico
Sail Date: October 18, 2008
Ship: Carnival Elation
Cabin Type: Inside
Traveled As: Family (older children)
Reviewed: 9 years ago
Review SummaryIt was our first cruise and a lot of people previously said the ship looked old. I thought it was alright. The staff were really friendly and great with the kids. The cruise director warned us to only book excursions with the ship, but we did our own thing anyway and paid half the price by going ashore and finding excursions once we got there. There were three boats anchored in the harbor so it was really crowded in Cabo San Lucas and in Ensenada too, but we had a fun time anyway. The kids had fun in their clubs and the night time entertainment was so so. The main lady singer could not sing and I could not figure out why they couldn't find someone with better talent. Overall we had a great time.

Pros: The food was great, especially if you have hungry teen-agers.
Cons: Sea water in the pool and constantly being photographed. I also didn't like having to check my youngest son in and out of his Club Carnival all day. They closed down for lunch and dinner and you constantly had to check them in and out and when you wanted to go an enjoy an activity.
