A superb cruise
Carnival Elation Cruise Review to Mexico
Sail Date: June 25, 2009
Ship: Carnival Elation
Cabin Type: Inside
Traveled As: Family (older children)
Reviewed: 8 years ago
Carnival really lived up to its reputation as the premier cruise line for families with kids (even teens). We cruised with other families with kids that were my son's classmates as well as my nephews. They all had a great time. We've cruised before with Princess, RCCL, and Norwegian and by far this was the best in terms of activities for kids. The others were first time cruisers but will cruise again with Carnival. I can't wait to get into their larger ships in the Caribbean or Europe--hope to do that next summer with the same group. Had a real blast!
Ports of Call
