We went on this cruise as a family Christmas present. We will remember this experience for a lifetime. Most people can not tell you what they got for Christmas last year, but I bet my children and grandchildren will be able years from now to tell you what they got from Nana for Christmas 2010.

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
The food was amazing. Everywhere you eat was wonderful. The grandchildren really enjoyed the fine dining and getting dressed up to eat.


5 out of 5
We went to several of the shows and activities. It's just that the schedule of some were where we could not go to see everything. Need to do somethings twice, maybe on another day.

Children's Programs

5 out of 5
My grandchildren did not go to alot of the age appropriate activities. They mostly wanted to stay with us, but they enjoyed everything they did.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Your staff is amazing. They were friendly and always willing to help.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
Everything was so clean and it was decorated for Christmas. We could not have asked for more.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Our rooms were really nice, even the one that slept 5 was roomy and comfortable. We all enjoyed the little towel animals and went to a class to learn to make them
3 out of 5
We went shopping in Cozumel, everything was beautiful, but the shop keepers were a little pushy. They would not let you just look around.

Pros: We enjoyed everything, the food, atmosphere and staff

Cons: The sea got really rough our day on board. We all were really sea sick

Recommends Carnival Elation? Yes!
