Most Amazing 40th Birthday Cruise!!

Sail Date: June 23, 2011

Reviewed: 5 years ago

Traveled As: Singles/Friends

Room Type: Oceanview

This was a special cruise to celebrate my 40th Birthday with 2 of my best friends. The port was convenient to all of us but the ship was even better than we expected. Our entire 4 night experience was awesome, we could not have asked for more!

Pros: Awesome wait staff every night at Dinner

Cons: Butffet needs longer hours.

Recommends Carnival Elation? Yes!

There was something for everyone!
Ship Quality
It was hard to believe that the ship was 21 years old! We were happy with all the aspects of the ship.
Food and Dining
Amazing that they are feeding 2700 people. Love the variety of choices for each meal.
Cabin / Stateroom
Despite having 3 girls in one room it was perfect.
Service and Staff
We could not have asked for more from the staff, especially the wait staff at dinner!
Cozumel, Mexico
The catamaran excursion on the Fury was amazing, the snorkeling was so much fun. Then you have to take a taxi to Poncho's Back Porch for lunch and a yummy margarita. Of course you have to walk and shop!
Don't Miss: Catamaran/Snorkeling excursion, Pancho's Back Porch
