5 Night Western Caribbean (New Orleans Roundtrip)
Sail Date: July 20, 2015
Ship: Carnival Elation
Cabin Type: Inside
Cabin Number: 246
Traveled As: Family (older children)

Our experience was good. Food was delicious and service was fabulous. Our stops in Mexico were wonderful and we enjoyed the comedy shows.

However, the Carnival Elation is a ship that is up for an overhaul. It is one of the last ships to get a makeover in the fleet. The two teenage boys with us became bored rather quickly on the two sea days. There is one water slide which is great, but not quite enough to fill an afternoon.

Overall, we had a restful week and will definitely cruise with Carnival again.

This cabin is not good for sea sickness and is very loud when the ship is docking.

Ship Tip

Definitely find your excursion deals on shore. The savings are large. We enjoyed Playa Mia in Cozumel, but, parts were still under construction. The teenagers loved the waterslides.

We took a thirty minute bus tour around the city for $5 a person. Not much to see, but on the bus you can see it all quickly and not get too hot. Massage on the beach? Cheap and amazing!
