advertises carnival cash, but you will never get any of it. They have language so that they can deny you the money. I am also pretty sure this post will not get posted too.
The ship is generally clean and nice, but the finish is loud and gaudy.

Pros: Decent Cruise

Cons: adverstises 100 cash back, but does not deliver

Recommends Carnival Elation? Yes!

Entertainment was not very good. seems like maybe they have cut the budget. Live music was more like a DJ
Ship Quality
Decor- what is with the orange painted rooms/hallways? Maybe they get a good deal on orange paint.
Food and Dining
The food was good. Great sandwiches. Deserts were less then good.
Cabin / Stateroom
Rooms were fairly big compared to other ships I have been on. Ugly interior, but clean and functional.
Children's Programs
They have lots for kids to do.
Service and Staff
Most staff were great. Only one we had a problem with were some of the drink servers. They are a little pushy about selling drinks.
Ensenada, Mexico
Not much in Ensenada in my opinion.
