3 Night Baja Mexico (San Diego Roundtrip)
Sail Date: April 02, 2009
Ship: Carnival Elation
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 9 years ago
This was my first cruise and I am delighted to say my husband and I had a great time. We choose to cruise in a relax mode (we were honeymooning) and did the lay out in the sun thing(well the little that was out) and take in some shows which were great. I must say that we had the most fun on our last day, the dance contest was a blast. I strongly recommend this ship for all. We will take the 7 days cruse next time though.

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
Food was excellent. The pizza is good for a late night snack. Staff serving dinner did all they could to make sure we enjoyed our meal.

Not too many options to honeymooners. We found the entertainment to mostly be party party. We did however truely enjoy the hipnotist... very very funny!

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
The staff does an excellent job of keeping the ship clean at all times.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Stateroom was surprisingly roomy. The shower had plenty of elbow room and came with medicine cabinets which surprised me. You can't get that in a hotel on land.

Great shopping but not to many BARGINS at the shops right off the ship. I heard if you go to the open market you are able to negotiate prices.
Don't Miss: every bar or club we passed we had people pushing their drink specials on us.

Pros: Staff

Cons: music on Lido deck

Recommends Carnival Elation? Yes!
