A first real vacation of my life..
Carnival Elation Cruise Review to Caribbean - Western
Sail Date: August 20, 2012
Ship: Carnival Elation
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Reviewed: 5 years ago
Review SummarySince we entered till we are out, it was all very relaxing. It is not a huge ship but big enough for first timers. I really loved the whole relaxing environment where I wasn't forced on activities I don't feel comfortable to participate. I felt that tons of photos taken during the cruise were sold at very expensive price which I avoided. I think they can make more money if prices are adjusted by 25%. It took us to 2 ports, progresso - don't have much to do except beach, Cozumel - nice tourist city with expensive shore excusrions. You can avoid paying these by going to public beach. Swimming with Dolphin was most attractive to kids at Cozumel but very expensive specially when they don't let you take the kids picture at all and sell those to unbelievable high prices ($30 each).
