September 2015 - 5 Night Western Caribbean (New Orleans Roundtrip) Cruise on Carnival Elation
This ship was gorgeous. Very relaxed atmosphere. Cabin was great. Our cleaning lady seemed to clean every time we left the cabin! The downside was the food. It wasn't very good. Not much of a variety at all and not available all day Except for pizza and ice cream. If you are a smoker, this ship is not really smoker friendly except in the casino which is ridiculous! It seemed they're were more smokers than non-smokers. The ship was beautiful but we never knew what was going on where. They should have signage when getting off elevators as to what is happening on that particular deck. And it was hard to get a carnival employee to help you with where to go. And we never did see the cruise director at all. Cozumel excursion was great but the Merida excursion was not very good. But all in all we made the most of it.
