Carnival Elation Cruise Review to Mexico
Sail Date: August 08, 2009
Ship: Carnival Elation
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Traveled As: Family (older children)
Reviewed: 8 years ago
Review SummaryThis was our first cruise and we were a bit nervous and not sure what to expect, as we were traveling with 2 tweens and a teen. We were very impressed with the staff aboard the ship, from the cruise director to the wait staff and cabin steward and all in between. Food was fabulous and plentiful. Kids enjoyed the 24 hour pizzaria and ice cream, as well as evening activities with their peers. Good information on shopping, ports, and shore excursions and arrival/departures from port were given for us newbies. Ship was clean, a bit older dated, but we didn't notice much, we were too busy having fun. Overall, a wonderful experience for all the family.

Ports of Call
Don't Miss: snorkeling and a day at Medano or Lovers Beach.
Pros: lots of food and varying fare every day, rooms were kept clean and neat several times a day. staff overall very friendly and enthusiastic. lots to do or not to do, as you felt like it.
Cons: pool deck was crowded on sunny days and not enough deck chairs or space on deck to relax unless you got there early and saved several chairs. Pools were both small and not very warm.
