A Fun Time

Sail Date: August 22, 2011

Reviewed: 5 years ago

Traveled As: Singles/Friends

Room Type: Oceanview

This was my first cruise, so we opted with the Carnival Elation based on price in case we were not big fans of a cruise. We had a group of four women, three of whom had never cruised. For the price, this is a good cruise for a first timer to get your feet wet.

Pros: Affordable and Chocolate lava cake at Lido

Cons: Dinner selections at Lido some evenings

Recommends Carnival Elation? Yes!

Don't Miss: Playa del Carmen beach-gorgeous!
Cozumel, Mexico
Must do the ATV Jungle Adventure, visit Margaritaville on the water, but the snorkeling in Cozumel is subpar.
