An excellent value for the money

Sail Date: November 29, 2008

Reviewed: 7 years ago

Room Type: Inside

This was an overall good value for the money. For about 70 bucks a day, you get great service, 24 hours of free food, excellent view of the ocean, and transportation to your ports of choice!

Pros: Plenty of free food; the ship layout was great; rooms are very clean

Cons: Food quality was so-so; spa treatments are super expensive; excursions are even more expensive!

Recommends Carnival Elation? Yes!

Ensenada, Mexico
You must try the $1 tacos that roll around in the taco carts. They usually appear around 11am. They taste so much better in Mexico. Even though that's the price for tourists, it's still cheap by those standards. The rest of the stuff there are not really worth buying, unless you can negotiate to a really low price. Don't bother with the bufadora, there's really nothing there.
Don't Miss: The tacos!
Cabo San Lucas, Mexico
You must go to the beach! That's the best part of Cabo. Forget the market because there are only expensive useless decor stuff there. The prices are of American standards cuz they know who you are, sometimes even more expensive. If the want to sell more, they should just lower their prices! Don't eat or drink there, cuz the prices are cut-throat for very poor quality food and drinks.
Don't Miss: The beach!
