July 2016 - 4 Night Bahamas (Jacksonville Roundtrip) Cruise on Carnival Elation
This was our first time booking a balcony. I must say that I enjoyed it more than I anticipated. Sure the Elation Is showing its age, but it's still nice. The shows were great - I loved the tribute to the Heart of Soul. Food was delicious, at times the lines were long but hey we expected that. Freeport was nicer than most of the reviews I read. We took a bus into Port Lucayan to the public beach. No charge unless you wanted to rent a chair and umbrella $10. Water was very beautiful! Nassau we stayed on the boat. We wanted to enjoy the amenities of the boat while most were on the island. It was nice.
