10 Night Southern Caribbean Carnival Journeys (San Juan To Jacksonville)
Sail Date: April 13, 2016
Ship: Carnival Elation
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Cabin Number: M181
Traveled As: Singles/Friends
Reviewed: 2 years ago

We did the back to back 21 day cruise from New Orleans back to Jacksonville. The Elation visited places that are not typically not ports of call (Barbados, Grenada, Tobago, Aruba, Curacao). The Atlantic coast of Barbados is breathtaking!  Skip the tube ride on Granada until the river level rises a little! Carnival Journeys are definitely fun cruises!  The appearance of the Elation is nicely maintained, but the infrastructure needs work:  One of the elevators in the atrium was not working at all and the sauna and steam room was malfunctioning for much of the 21 days.  Dining room service was excellent.  The buffet seemed to have limited choices The grill, Mongolian wok, pizza and deli are nice alternatives.  Entertainment was good, but not out of the ordinary.  Overall the cruise was a great bargain.
