3 Night Baja Mexico (San Diego Roundtrip)
Sail Date: February 19, 2009
Ship: Carnival Elation
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 9 years ago

This was our first cruise. I now know what to look for in our future cruising chips. Although all food is free, if you drink alcohol, prepare to pay a steep price. The shows were very amateur, comedian not very funny. I would book this trip again for the cheap price and length (3 days).
