5 Night Western Caribbean (Mobile Roundtrip)
Sail Date: January 10, 2011
Ship: Carnival Elation
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 7 years ago

While my family has enjoyed numerous cruises in the past, I have avoided them because I do not like being restricted to a specific space. This was my first cruise, and I took it for my 25th wedding anniversary. My worst fears came true, having to spend 90% of the cruise without the opportunity to get off the ship. I feel the explanation of the problems were poorly conveyed to the passengers, and at times very evasive.

It rained the entire time we were there, we got there late and didn't get to spend much time on the island.

Pros: The entertainment was high quality as was the service in the dining areas.

Cons: Being stuck on the ship 4 1/2 of the 5 days.

Recommends Carnival Elation? No.
