4 Night Baja Mexico (San Diego Roundtrip)
Sail Date: February 22, 2009
Ship: Carnival Elation
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 8 years ago

The ship was clean, the staff professional. The common areas are beautiful, but the room and a few of the common areas were dated and somewhat worn. We rarely had to wait in line for anything. The shows were very good, but the theater is small, making it hard to get a seat. The pool area and the golf deck were very nice and well maintained. The food was good, but not excellent. The only true negative on this ship is a lack of heat. It was cold outside two days, and there was no way to heat the rooms. There is AC, but no heat.

Not much to do here, but it was fun to get off the ship. We had been here before, so we were not disappointed.
Don't Miss: The museum in the Casino.

This is just a place outside the US to dock. There is nothing to do, and it is considered extremely dangerous by those of us who live in San Diego.
Don't Miss: None that I am aware of.

Pros: Common areas, golf putting green, padded jogging track, shows

Cons: There is no heat on this ship. Verifed this with the engineer. It was COLD.

Recommends Carnival Elation? Yes!
