Average Cruise

Sail Date: November 05, 2011

Reviewed: 4 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Oceanview

The ship was late arriving at port, therefore our sail date was pushed back two hours, which would have been fine, but it left 8 hours late. So the first day at sea, they went faster then normal to make up for time, which made the ship much less smooth and uncomforatable. The staterooms were dirty when we checked in. The entire boarding process was completely unorganized. Oh and the ships deck plans found on Carnivals website dont match the actual deck plans.

The port were great. I highly recommend Chichen Itza. Cozumel was great for shopping and for beaches.

Pros: The Ports were great.

Cons: The ship

Recommends Carnival Elation? No.

Cozumel, Mexico

Don't Miss: Beaches
Progreso (Merida), Mexico
Progresso itself didnt look like a great place, but the Mayan Ruins surroudning it were great.
Don't Miss: Chichen Itza
