Poor service and communication

In response to review, Oldrip says ...

WOW.. Such a well informed review, from a FIRST TIME cruiser.

The Elation is due for a dry dock upgrade this summer, but my wife and I did a B2B (oh.. sorry, for a newbie, that is a Back to Back cruise) in February, and had a GREAT time... ‚ We have cruised her before, and have booked a family cruise for this December. ‚ We hope that there are few fellow cruisers like you onboard... We will be there to have FUN... not nit-pick.

Sorry you had some snafus on your cruise. Our least favorite parts of any cruise are embarkation and debarkation.‚ We enjoy going to the Pirates museum in Nassau.‚ What did you do there?‚ Welcome to the world of cruising.

It's too bad that you didn't enjoy your cruise, but a land vacation at an all inclusive resort may suit you better. The pools on a cruise ship are not "swimming" pools, they are for cooling off only. Perhaps some research prior to your cruise, and reading reviews on this site and others‚ would have helped you to have a better time.‚

Sorry cruising is not for you. ‚ A bit of research before any vacation can do a lot of good. ‚ Plenty of photo's of the ship all over the internet to know what she looks like. (look her up on youtube to see video's of the cabins and public rooms of the ship) ‚ ‚ A ship cabin is‚ smaller then a hotel room so beds may be a bit smaller also. ‚ I‚ never saw a review where somebody measures the bed. ‚ Did you pack a tape measure ?

So sorry that the ship did not meet your expectations.‚ Thanks for posting your two photos.‚
