5 Night Western Caribbean (New Orleans Roundtrip)
Sail Date: October 31, 2015
Ship: Carnival Elation
Cabin Type: Inside
Cabin Number: E157

We decided on this cruise as a quick cheap get away.  First I must say I've been on about 15 cruises and have a lot to compare it to.  If this is your first cruise and budget is a concern, go for it, you won't be dissapointed, you can't beet the cost!

However, if you have cruised before and are used to larger ships with tons to do you probably won't be happy with this, just keep in mind the cost and go into it with the mindset that you get what you pay for and you will be fine.

It was as small as expected, we normally get balcony a and again, just wanted a cheap budget friendly get away and weren't willing to spend extra on the room this time.
