Sail Date: Jan 2010

We had an enjoyable cruise this past week on Carnival Elation. Our stateroom steward Siad did an awesome job keeping our cabin neat and tidy. The room had plenty of space to put away all of the clothes and bags that we brought. It also had a safe that you could put your valuables away for free. He had great towel animals each night of the cruise. We had Jessica in the dining room for late seating in the Inspiration dining room. She and her coworkers were awesome in knowing who wanted coffee and what type. The food was fantastic, and you had a good selection of appetizers, and entrees. You have to try the choclate molten cake and the grand marnier souffle.

The shore excursion in Ensenada you should try is the "Taste of Mexico". You are shown how to make some very tasty guacamole, enchilada, and tostado. The instructor does a great job in describing how to prepare the dishes, and Brenda is fantastic and you really see the pride she has in her country when talking about her countries flag.

We did the whale watching tour in Catalina and it was great that we saw dolphins, sea lions, seals and other marine animals but no whales this time.
