A Disappointing Ship

Sail Date: April 24, 2008

Reviewed: 7 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Oceanview

As cruise ships go, this was a PLAIN JANE. No special bars or entertainment with ocean view, we consider this a family only cruise and not suited for the more sufisticated senior travelers. Due to the rowdy noisey teenagers, and young people, we are going to spend a little extra and upgrade our cruise line next year.

Pros: Size of cabin:Biggest room for cost among popular cruise lines we've seen

Cons: Not good for over 55 crowd. Too many budget minded 20 somethings. Too many children for this time of year (April) Poor food selection, and mandatory seating times.

Recommends Carnival Elation? No.

Cabo San Lucas, Mexico
Take catamoran trip to outer arch where Pacific meets Gulf. This was the Sea part of the Land and Sea tour. A complete bust was the Land part of tour to San Jose Los Cabos. Very dull tiring and not worth paying for. Glass Factory and Cactus Farm are a definite miss.
Don't Miss: Trip to the Arches on rim of Sea of Cortez
