Fun time on the Elation

Sail Date: May 03, 2014

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Inside

Carnival makes sailing fun for sure.  The employees are truly amazing.  Not only are they fun and friendly but they are intelligent and interesting people!  We had a blast interacting with them and watching them on stage, etc.  We enjoyed everything from our stateroom to the shows, concerts, performances and the food.  We loved the piano bar and spent most nights there.  The excursions were great as well, especially the Mayan ruins in Progreso, and the snorkeling in Cozumel is excellent!  Fantastic vacation we will never forget!

Stay for a few days if you can! Culture and food like nowhere else in the world!
Cozumel, Mexico
Snorkeling here is great! Beautiful beaches
Progreso (Merida), Mexico
Must see the Mayan ruins!


Take advantage of the dining room. It is awkward at first if you are just two people, because they seat you with other people, but soon you'll be sharing stories on what you did that day, etc. because you sit with the same people every night. Plus the food is the best on the ship
