I've read the reviews here for a long time. They've been such a big help! We went on the Carnival Valor in May '06 out of Miami, Fl and absolutely loved it. The ship was beautiful--very colorful, we thought. We're still talking about our wonderful servers in the dining room, Julia and Pande! They made our dining a true experience!
Now, we're heading to San Diego on Oct. 1 (ps: we're retired young in our 50's) and will finish our trip with a cruise to Baja Cal. on the Carnival Elation on Oct. 13. I'm so excited. I need to know what people wear in Cabo or Ensenada in Oct. Also, any other advice or information about the Elation will be greatly appreciated! Thanks.
Hello, I sailed on this trip last October. I found the weather in San Diego and Ensenada to be quite cool. There was a strong cool breeze in Ensenada when we arrived, but it warmed up quit quickly. When we arrived back in San Diego the weather was warm.
Cabo was sunny and very warm. The water in the pool was very cold until we reached Cabo. On our first sea day, I went down the water slide and thought "this is going to hurt when I hit the pool". I donít think I ever flew out of the pool so fast in my life. Once in Cabo where the ocean is quite warm, there was no problem - the pool was very nice.
I bet you were wishing it was sunny the last few days. Hope you didn't get any flooding. Haven't been to Cabo yet. I have cruised on the Elation, and thought the service was excellent in every department.
