My husband and I took this cruise to Progreso and Cozumel and had a blast.  We relaxed in the sun on deck, laughed in the comedy lounge, and enjoyed amazing shows in the Mikado Lounge.  We felt pampered by the ship's extraordinary staff who provided excellent service every where we went, especially the evening dinner time.  Tiberius and Constantin not only provided 5 Star service, but were extremely personable and entertaining.  They made our evening meals special events and the cruise had phenomenal food.  Progreso had fantastic shopping deals and when we took the shuttle bus, they offered a $35 per person all-inclusive private beach deal.  It was well worth the money.  We pre-booked a shore excursion for Cozumel.  We chose the Twister to Isle Pasion.  Wow!  What an exciting ride, but let me warn you, you will get wet.  Well, that's an understatement.  You will get drenched by a wave of ocean water every time Willie makes a 360 degree turn.  We loved it and Isle Pasion was beautiful, with plenty of chairs, hammocks, shade, and kayaking.  Of course, the open bar at both all-inclusive beaches was the best part of the deal, considering the prices of drinks on the cruise ship.  So, keep your eyes open for cruise deals and we highly recomment that you consider the Carnival Elation.  It's not the largest ship, but it has everything you need in a cruise, to relax and pamper yourself.

Ship Tip

Get to the comedy shows early. Seating is limited and it is very popular. Consider the Inspiration Dining room for lunch. It's not crowded and has a higher class of food choices.
