We chose this cruise out of New Orleans because we don't have many options in Alabama. Mobile doesn't have a boat anymore. Jacksonville is also a nice port, but we have been on the Elation before and wanted a new adventure. The service ... Read more

Sailed June 2016
I liked the short itinerary, not too long nor too short for our first time sailing without the kids. We liked the idea of a long day at Nassau and going in June would ensure nice, warm weather. We found embarkation to be a breeze! We ... Read more
