5 Night Western Caribbean (New Orleans Roundtrip)
Sail Date: October 01, 2012
Ship: Carnival Elation
Cabin Type: Inside
Traveled As: Family (older children)
Reviewed: 5 years ago
I was very apprehensive about going on a cruise, but after doing it, I realized it wasn't that bad. In fact, it was very enjoyable. The staff is wonderful. The service is great. I wish the ship had more to do for kids ages 12 & 13 though. But overall, I would definitely cruise again.
