A Good Cruise

Sail Date: September 19, 2011

Reviewed: 5 years ago

Traveled As: Singles/Friends

Room Type: Suite

The Elation was a nice size ship for a cruise, not too big and not too small.
I was impressed with the stabalization, very smooth sailing. The cruise director keep a lot of activities going and the shows were well done. Judging from previous (Carnival) cruises, I was a bit disappointed in the food taste and quality, nothing was very spectacular. We were happy with our room, we had a grand suite and balcony which was super nice and we were treated as VIP. The crew was very nice and accomodating. We especially loved our Dinner Dining room crew - high energy and really made dinner time fun.

Pros: Smooth Sailing and Friendly Crew

Cons: Food was a bit disappointing

We took a taxi to Playa Del Carmen for shopping - taxi drivers were very friendly (only 13.00) much cheaper than Carnival excursion prices. There is also a beach available right there in town. Be ready for all the bartering....drives you crazy after a bit though.

We went to the Allegro Resort and it was absolutely Beautiful. Several pools and hot tubs and a gorgeous beach and awesome water!!! Can't say enough about this place...the grounds were lush and tropical...perfect.
