5 Night Western Caribbean (New Orleans Roundtrip)
Sail Date: March 28, 2016
Ship: Carnival Elation
Cabin Type: Inside
Cabin Number: M21
Traveled As: Family (older children)
Reviewed: 2 years ago

This was your staple cruise, with lots of couples and families with children -- and typical cruise food. A variety of activities and shore excursions were available, but some of the excursions were hopelessly overstated and we got our money back for two of them. Still, we had fun and found the service to be good. A bargain overall.
