Great Cruise !

Sail Date: August 17, 2009

Reviewed: 6 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Oceanview

The Elation was a great ship. The crew was waiting at our stateroom to see if we needed anything. All the activities were fun and well planned, organized and fun. We just wanted a no hassel vacation and that's exactly what we got. Next time we are going to go on a longer cruise and get a balcony! The meals were excellent and when I asked for the Filet AND Lobster, they had no problems bringing me both. Thanks to Cruise our trip was easy to book and we will ONLY use them for future bookings.

Pros: The ease of the entire experience from booking the cruise to sailing

Cons: The fact we didn't go on a longer trip

Recommends Carnival Elation? Yes!

Catalina Island, California
We walked to the Busy Bee for lunch-Buffalo burgers. Good, beer high priced but the entire island is a bit pricey, but it was a lovely day and we enjoyed ourselves.
Ensenada, Mexico
We took the tour to the BlowHole, it was nice to see. The "flea market" had some incredible deals - don't get misled when the tour gives you a free margarita-where you go to get them they start to hand you a full sized glass, this one is NOT free, the little dixie cup is the free one, others are $10/ea.
