New Orleans Elation cruise

Sail Date: December 22, 2014

Reviewed: 2 years ago

Traveled As: Family (older children)

Room Type: Oceanview

Overall the cruise was good considering the weather that we had. Suggestions:

1.D Emergency procedure drill - Liked the way RC did theirs where you have to find your own way to the boats then they give instructions.  Yours took too long and I didn't remember where I was suppose to go afterwards.

2. Pictures - What a waste of paper...thought they would be online by now.  Should be able to look them up by our boat card.  This way you could reduce overall cost to purchase and people would possibly buy more.

3. Progresso - did the corona beach party.  Constant parade of vendors trying to sell stuff!  Options are limited if not interested in ruins.  Carnival either needs to buy some property there or maybe just spend two days in Cozumel.

4. Shows were pretty good.  Was satisfied with the food.

5.  My teenage children was hoping that there would be more activities for their age.
