Carnival Elation Cruise Review to Mexico
Review SummaryAll areas of the ship are clean and in good repair. Crew is energetic and friendly. The entertainers (singers, dancers, muscians) were very professional and talented. There was a continuous stream of activities with broad appeal. The food is good on average, with spikes of excellence. This is not an adventure in fine dining, but it is an all-around value for a getaway. With all the activities offered, you can be as relaxed or involved as you wish. Keep in mind that baggage and hand-carried items are x-rayed each time you embark, not so much for security (we had a knife in our luggage that was not questioned), but for alcohol. If you bring bottled spirits aboard, at any point in your cruise, be prepared to have them confiscated. I suppose you get to claim them at the end of the cruise.
