4 Night Western Caribbean (New Orleans Roundtrip)
Sail Date: February 27, 2014
Ship: Carnival Elation
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Cabin Number: E30
Traveled As: Family (young children)
Reviewed: 4 years ago

We were treated awesome and made to feel special at every opportunity. The staff paid special attention to our grandchildren. They made sure we did not want/need anything. From the room steward to the dinig staff, they all remembered our names and were friendly and courteous when ever they saw us.

Frequently, they anticipated the children's needs before I could. We were very relaxed in the morning and throughout the day but always rejoined as a family for dinner in the main dining room. Dinners were very special each night. This was NOT the Carnival Cruise Line I have experienced in the past. We will be booking another cruise with them.
