Great time, FIRST cruise.

Sail Date: September 01, 2010

Reviewed: 6 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Oceanview

Really enjoyed cruising. This was my first and not last cruise. If your a gambler, cruises are the way to go, you always have a meal with no comps needed. Enjoyed tournaments while the Mrs's enjoyed the spa. Getting on the boat was cheap, but watch your expenses while on the ship :)

Overall it was a great trip!!!

Pros: The service and dinning options as well as comedy club.

Cons: Calica Port, broadway style shows (very disappointing).

Recommends Carnival Elation? Yes!

Complete waste of time. Do not go on the Cavern Jeep excursion not fun except for last stop at the beach. Did more driving on the highway than JEEP riding.
Don't Miss: N/A
Cozumel, Mexico
Cozumel was fun from excursion to dinning and shopping (watch out for the free gifts promised on board, you have to make stops at several stores to get the gift you want meantime the salesperson is trying to sell you other things than giving you your gift good for the Mrs's but will drive you nuts if you got to accompany :) Do not recommend 3 Amigos restaurant for food but watching the waiting staff deliver drinks on top of their heads and wiping out can be enjoyable :)
Don't Miss: N/A
