An "OK" First Cruise.

Sail Date: December 15, 2007

Reviewed: 6 years ago

Traveled As: Family w/older children

Room Type: Inside

The ship was always clean, except one part of the ship that did smell a lot (like garbage). The help was amazing, friendly, attentive, and they made the stay even more pleasant. The food was always there, some days the food was better than others, if you get the chance do go the the formal dinner every night- it is better than the cafeteria.

Pros: The nightly vegas-style shows, freebies in room and the free cocktails on one night

Cons: 4 adults sharing one tiny room!

Recommends Carnival Elation? Yes!

Ensenada, Mexico
Fabulous day at Ensenada, beautiful weather, a bit of history and a bit of modern America coinside at La Bufadora and the outdoor markets.
Don't Miss: La Bufadora
Cabo San Lucas, Mexico
Way too tourist-y! All the locals do is try to get your attention by yelling at you to come check out their goods, they will stop short of pulling money out of your wallet to make you buy their fake silver and other expensive goods. Do Not go the "Playa del Sol" , for the suposedly free lunch with drinks, free use of the "fabulous" private beach, and other freebies with $115 in American cash. They are just trying to get you the partake in a contract to buy a timeshare or fractional owenership at the resort. Even if you say no to the resort they will hassle you, and keep you their on their property (we were there for over 3 hours-ruining our whole day!!!!)
Don't Miss: DONT go to tourist-y Cabo San Lucas!!!!!!!!!!!!
