Overall ship was fine. I didn't have a problem with the size but the pool on the Lido Deck was too small. Rooms were small but efficient. Public areas were clean and nicely appointed.

Went to Chankanaab park. Nice park overall. Kids had a very good time swimming w/the dolphins, but they don't let the parents take any video or photos. The only way to get any memory of the event is to buy their very expensive pictures or CDs. Very disappointing
Don't Miss: N/A

Went to the beach in Playa Del Carmen. Very nice but the Gulf was very choppy that day.

Pros: The ports & our cabin steward

Cons: Size of the pool and how often it closed

Recommends Carnival Elation? No.
