5 Night Western Caribbean (Mobile Roundtrip)
Sail Date: September 10, 2011
Ship: Carnival Elation
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Traveled As: Singles/Friends

Very pleased with Elation - although we heard this is an older ship it is in great condition, very clean and well maintained. Our room was bigger then we thought it was going to be and we enjoyed the animal towels every day. Food was great - loved the sit down dining every evening - made several new friends! The shows were so good too!
