I did it on another Carnival ship. It was terrific. you go in the galley, the Chef describes all the courses. you have to be open to trying new foods and wines.

You are most welcome. I own a franchise to a travel agency; the primary reason I purchased the agency was because of my love for cruising.
If I can be of any assistance to you on this cruise or any future cruise just ask, I'll be most happy to assist you!

Linda, Check out CruiseTipsTv YouTube channel. She has a lot of helpful packing & cruising tips. Cruising with Wheels YouTube & facebook page are also very helpful. I believe the Cruising with Wheels has a packing list.

Be sure to download the hub app. Won't work until you get on board but is very handy.

Welcome! I hope you enjoy cruising as much as I do. I always overpack so I'm probably not a good person too give you packing suggestions. If you download the Hub app for Carnival you can see what's going on at any given time plus you will have a paper in your room everyday with all of the activities. Normally I mix and match clothes and recycle because most of my days are spent in my bathing suit. If you look at the FAQ's on the Carnival website you should get a good idea of what to pack.

Hi, this will be my first cruise leaving next week on carnival elation to half moon bay and Nassau. What do I need to pack? How do you know which decks has what going on? I'm so excited but nervous to not knowing what to expect and making sure I have the right clothes for the season. Any comments about anything would be so helpful. Thanks, Linda

Chefs table reviews? Has anyone reserved the Chef's Table experience on Elation Jan. 22, 2018?

Thanks to all who have answered my question.

Don't stress the small stuff just go with the flow

The port. Reserve online and you get a discount.

Jan 11, 2018 - 10:54 pm

MrsHagood

We have parked at the port. It’s so easy to get in and out of.

Jan 11, 2018 - 3:02 pm

damartins83

And excursion in Nassau would be really good. The first port at the private beach is great to just get off the boat and relax. The shows are fun to go to. The comedies are great but if you go to the adult comedy hours they are adult adult adult :-). Hairy man on the Lido deck is always fun. I always like to go to all the things the boat has to offer as far as shows, comedies. Also do not forget to download the Carnival hub app so you and whoever you’re with can text each other while you were on the boat, see all the schedules, keep up with your online tab and lots of other fun things. Have a great time!

We always park at the port. It is the best thing to do by far!!

Jan 11, 2018 - 1:51 pm

calestultz

Any suggestions about parking the car for the Elation cruise?

Jan 10, 2018 - 9:53 pm

AngieStark

You can order different things in the dining room, two appetizers or if you get something and don’t like it order another. It’s included. Also don’t forget to relax! People stress out trying to do everything the first time, you can’t do everything and if you try you won’t feel relaxed. Remember you are on vacation! Have a great cruise!

Thanks for the tips 😄

Timar69

Use hand sanitizer stations every time you see one, by elevators, casinos, cafes, dining rooms etc.
When you hit the winning streak in the casino, cash out and take the money directly to your room safe, I promise you, the winning streak won't continue! I've mastered my first piece of advice but find the second piece of advice rattling aimlessly between my brain cells! Lol, still good advice even if I fail to practice what I preach!
Lastly, enjoy because this will be your first of many more cruise experiences to come!
Keep my contact, I'm a awesome travel agency owner, I'll get you some great deals on those future cruises and land vacations!

12 days! Can’t wait. First time cruising. Any important tips or things I should know for a first time cruiser?

Boyfriend cancelled at the last minute, but a good friend took his place. Girls trip!

the Fish Fry is the best fresh. Senor Frogs is good for a party atmosphere

Jan 03, 2018 - 10:25 pm

Any lgbtq cruising who would enjoy meeting for drinks, dinners etc?

Jan 03, 2018 - 5:17 pm

Go to dolphinencounters.com and you can use the promo code BOGO. The code is good through the end of the month.

We sailed from Jacksonville on Elation last September. It was deck 4.

Oct 20, 2017 - 11:10 am

Grammyof3

Agreed! Half Moon Cay is beautiful and just a beach day is wonderful!

Sep 22, 2017 - 8:23 pm

jc4me

I probably wouldn't do an excursion I HMC since it is such a beautiful beach. It's a good place to just hang out. Congratulations on your upcoming wedding!

Sep 22, 2017 - 8:39 am

bridgetnicole

What are the best excursions for half moon cay and Nassau? Me and my fiancé will be getting married in January and we are going on our honey moon and want some advice.

Sep 13, 2017 - 10:03 am

Happy to hear that our ports of call didn't have major damage from Irma. Looking forward to this cruise!

Aug 21, 2017 - 11:44 am

jc4me

Has anyone on here sailed from Jacksonville before? I am trying to determine what deck we will Embark and debark from. Every Fantasy class ship we have been on it has been deck 7 / Empress but I read somewhere that this ship boards on the bottom deck. Can anyone confirm?

Aug 19, 2017 - 4:01 pm

Can't wait till Jan 22
