October 2016 - Carnival Elation to Caribbean - Bahamas
I do not know what is was with this crew, but out of the 47 cruises my husband and I have taken; this crew was the friendliest group of them all. Usually we have perhaps one or two people that helped make our cruise wonderful. This trip there were 14 of them !!! We did a back to back of a five day with a four day to make a nice 9 day out of it. People ( crew ) went out of their way several times every single day to make sure we were happy and had every single thing we could ask for. This was also the first cruise we that decided to try an inside cabin with. I was extremely hesitant, but no more. I wanted to mention that fact, so you knew our cabin selection had nothing to do with our treatment. I think our cabin was quieter than usual and definitely darker than our usual. I never looked behind that curtained off window (??) area though. We slept wonderfully in this dark cocoon every night, perhaps too good. Since we had problems getting up in the AM. I will not hesitate to book another inside cabin from now on. If I had to say anything negative about the entire 9 days, it would be how they passed out their BINGO cards. They would send a crew member to you, while you sat in your chairs. This method seemed to take forever and some people got pretty frustrated with the long wait. Otherwise, this cruise was a perfect getaway !
