All aboard the fun ship!

Sail Date: January 24, 2009

Reviewed: 8 years ago

Traveled As: Large Group

Room Type: Inside

We had a group of 16 and I'd definitely say that while cruising, more is merrier. And for the price, there was no good excuse not to go. We are already talking about our next trip.

Pros: Food, photos, dance classes, music, staff, destinations!

Cons: designated smoking sections not well ventilated

Recommends Carnival Elation? Yes!

Cabin / Stateroom
Totally adequate, comfortable. Down on the beds, tv, fresh towels everyday.
Service and Staff
I think the staff had as much fun as we did.
Ship Quality
Food and Dining
All you can eat almost all the time. Not as many vegetarian options. Try the room service, it's free!
We used what we learned in our dance classes at the night clubs.
Ensenada, Mexico
Again, don't book trips through the cruise line. We payed $15 for r/t bus to the blow hole which also included shopping district and free margarita! And still left time to explore around town.
Cabo San Lucas, Mexico
Lover's beach. Take a taxi when you get there. Purchasing through the ship is quite expensive.
