Elation was the best cruise!!

Sail Date: September 01, 2014

Reviewed: 2 years ago

Traveled As: Family (older children)

Room Type: Inside

My daughter and I took our much needed vacation on Carnival Elation, September 1, 2014 thru September 6, 1014.  We found that taking our cruise around this time, the flight and cruise prices on   was almost half the cost than the summer prices.  The weather was hot but we had a few very short  rain showers to cool us down while on the boat on sea day.  This boat was very majestic and beautiful.  I heard the longer the cruise, the bigger the boat, which seems to be true.  We took a three day Carnival cruise 12 years ago and the boat was not nearly as big and beautiful as Elation.  Great food, great room service (don't forget our towel animals every night, beds turned down and chocolates on the pillows), great excursions. In Progresso, we did the Private Beach excursion and it was amazing and highly recommended.  We were at the most beautiful resort with all the food and drinks (including alcoholic drinks) you wanted, included in the $70 price.  Lots of pictures that day!!! We had the the dream vacation without having to go over our budget.  Highly recommended!

Destinations and Excursions
Loved Prgresso and Cozumel!!
Cabin / Stateroom
Loved it! Loved the interior room b/c if you wanted a daytime nap on sea day, it was very dark. The beds were amazingly comfortable with down comforters and high quality sheets, pillowcases and pillows.


Be early to the late night comedy shows or you can't get into them b/c of "packed house"
