5 Night Western Caribbean (Mobile Roundtrip)
Sail Date: April 09, 2011
Ship: Carnival Elation
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Traveled As: Family (young children)
Reviewed: 7 years ago

They were 7 hours late boarding to begin with and the staff in the port area where we had to wait was extremely rude. We were fed the most awful food we have ever had and forced to stay at the convention center for 6 hours. The cruise line made no effort to try to make up for the time that was lost or in any way make up for the awful experience. We will never cruise with carnival again.
