5 Day Bahamas. Avoided hurricane!

Ship: Carnival Elation
Cabin Type: Inside
Cabin Number: R159
Traveled As: Singles/Friends

The ship was very clean, the rooms seemed larger than previous ships I have been on, especially the bathrooms. The wait staff and bartenders were all top notch, Allen at the Lido deck pool bar especially.
Water slide was fun, dinner was great every time. I have no complaints.
We had to arrive 2 hours prior to our scheduled arrival time when returning to Jaxport due to a hurricane, but Carnival's top priority was making sure the guests were safe and didn't have to disembark during something like that.
The seas got a little rough on the way back because of the storm/speed of the ship, but that isn't Carnival's fault.
Overall, great time, the islands are still beautiful as ever! Will definitely be booking another trip with Carnival in the future.

For parking I would use WallyPark, it is about 15 min from Jaxport and will save you 45 dollars.
