5 Night Western Caribbean (New Orleans Roundtrip)
Sail Date: April 21, 2012
Ship: Carnival Elation
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Traveled As: Family (older children)
Reviewed: 6 years ago

I was traveling with three females 14, 25, and 47. The 14 year old absolutely loved the circle c club. Both adults found the entertainment a bit boring. If you weren't into karaoke or Vegas type shows that only left a pretty good comedy act and the casino. The food at lunch and dinner was good but the breakfast was so horrible I would have rather eaten at Denny's.

Totally awesome 12-14 club. I hardly saw her the whole trip. My daughter made friends that she was already texting as we got off the boat.
