5 Night Bahamas (Port Canaveral Roundtrip)
Sail Date: April 14, 2007
Ship: Carnival Elation
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Traveled As: Couple

The food was excellent and always readily available. Most importantly, the staff (particularly the stateroom and restaurant staff) were friendly, always smiling, and courteous. They quickly learned our preferences, likes and dislikes, and made the cruise very special.

The day was very windy and the sea quite choppy. They offered full refunds on the boat snorkeling trip, which everyone but me accepted. They took me out (just me, no one else!) and I had a great time.
Don't Miss: boat snorkeling trip

Snorkeling was excellent, with some of the best coral we have seen in a long time.
Don't Miss: Sidewalk vendors in the historic section of town

Shopping in the stores near the docks was a dissapointment. The "deals" were not what we had expected. The street vendors were interesting, particularly those away from the dock area.
Don't Miss: Atlantis Aquarium

Pros: The staff were friendly, and quickly learned our preferences

Cons: The end of the cruise!

Recommends Carnival Elation? Yes!
