March 2015 - 5 Night Western Caribbean (New Orleans Roundtrip) Cruise on Carnival Elation
Overall, good experience
I took my mom on a cruise for her birthday, and it was a good time. I recommend buying an excursion for Progresso, as there isn't much in the immediate vicinity. Cozumel, be ready to be plummeted by vendors, but you can argue some pretty good deals. There was much to do on this ship, just be weary of all of the bingo announcements. The population was mixed, families, frat boys and girls, and older folks. No one felt out of place which was nice. Bottom line, I would recommend this cruise.
