this cruise was a good vacation for the money. The ship was a little confusing to get around in and the service was just average.

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
The servers were excellent considering the location of our table. The appearance of the meals was somewhat lacking and the food was average.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
he staff was friendly when approached but were not outgoing and welcoming initially. The dining staff was great. We never saw the captain out mingling with the passengers.

Ship Quality

3 out of 5
Bathrooms were not always neat and clean; the ship felt "cramped", it was hard to get from one end of the ship to the other on some floors.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
the stateroom and bathroom were spacious and in good repair. I received a blow drier after requesting one.
3 out of 5
We ate lunch at LaTortuga and really enjoyed it.
3 out of 5
Our daughter lives near Cabo, so we spent the day with her after visiting Baja cantina and a few shops.

Pros: The great people at our dining table and the wait staff

Cons: Minimal contact with the room steward and other personnel

Recommends Carnival Elation? Yes!
