5 Night Western Caribbean (Port Canaveral Roundtrip)
Sail Date: December 09, 2006
Ship: Carnival Elation
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 7 years ago
The ship was very clean and well maintained. The outside stateroom was very spacious for two people. It had a nice size window. The bathroom was well laid out with a shower, sink and toilet. A nice size ship, not so big you get lost.

Shopping at the port is better than downtown for true souveniers and it is more laid back. Downtown is mostly jewelry shops, gold, silver, diamonds, tanzanite. The shop owners downtown are also very pushy to get customers in the store.
Don't Miss: Lunch at Poncho's Backyard. Excellent guacamole dip.

Save your money unless there is a tour you really want to see. Take the free trolley into Duval street and just walk around. It is not a big place. PePe's on Caroline Street makes delicious Margaritas with fresh lime juice and the shrimp/crab bisque was awesome. Doesn't look like much from the outside but step into the courtyard and you won't be disappointed.
