Our first Cruise

Sail Date: December 28, 2006

Reviewed: 6 years ago

Traveled As: Family w/older children

Room Type: Inside

My first cruise. We had a good time but us and many others were confused on how to dress most nights. Some people at same table had on suits and some jeans. Cigar smoke in lounge above dining room oppresive. Buffet table not immpresive. Don't know why you stop at Freeport theres nothing there. We were charged for water and sodas in our room we never used. And a $40. gratuity on each of our fun passes.

Pros: Food,ship and people

Cons: Lack of communication, no one knew exactly what dress codes were or where dining room was first night out, short time in port and changes in sailing time without notification, lunch buffet was poor at best.

Recommends Carnival Elation? Yes!
