November 2015 - 5 Night Western Caribbean (New Orleans Roundtrip) Cruise on Carnival Elation
The dining was amazing, and the serving crew made the whole cruise amazing. We sat with Edy and his team, and they were all amazing! The singing and dancing each night was fantastic, and it really livened up the place and kept everything positive and fun.
The comedians on board (Kim Harrison and Michael Speenberg) were pretty good, and we saw each of them 3 or 4 times. The song and dance shows were entertaining, and it was nice to have the opportunity to see something we usually don't get a chance to see.
Walking by/through the smoking areas was almost impossible to avoid, which is frustrating. I would much prefer a smoke free cruise ship, or at the very least have closed off smoking areas like in airports. Nobody else wants to inhale that mess. We walked by the bar band a couple times but did not linger because it was in or was too near a smoking area.
