March 2016 - 5 Night Western Caribbean (New Orleans Roundtrip) Cruise on Carnival Elation
This was our 9th cruise (1 on Celebrity, 7 on Princess and our first on Carnival). The staff was great. The ship (Elation) was tired an in need of refurbish. The entertainment was typical of all cruise lines. From the three cruise lines we've used, I find that the entertainment is always mediocre and the staff always great and hardworking. Cruise choice usually comes down to price, destination, time since the last ship refit and food. I find Princess has the best food so we'll likely go back to them. We took this one due to sailing schedule and departure port.
