Destination: South America
Embarkation: New Orleans
I'm single & was wanting a budget friendly vacation with some girlfriends. We booked with Carnival Elation for July 2012. I cant think of anything negative to say. Ive never traveled outside the U.S., or been on a cruise. From our hotel stay before the cruise, to the end of our cruise, everyone was very helpful, polite & friendly. We were well taken care of.
The food was good & plentiful. Pool & sunbathing was great. Bars were fun & service was top notch. Our room was tiny, but spotless. We were only in it long enough to sleep & get dressed. We did whatever we wanted, when we wanted. We wore the furnished, big, terrycloth robes, out on deck one morning at 3:00AM to drink coffee & smoke. Crew & passengers would smile or chuckle at us.
We shopped at Cozumel & ate at a great bar that was geared for fun. The ship was scrubbed & spotless daily. The crew members worked very hard & deserved more gratuities than they got. We never heard an unkind word from crew members or More passengers, everyone was polite & forgiving. For the price we paid, I feel we got more than we expected. I'm ready to go again! This cruise is for people wanting to be out & doing activities & view the ocean. We didn't go to spend time in our room. Less

Cabin review: 1AU123 Interior Upper/Lower
Our cabin was tiny, for three women, but spotless. Beds were luxury cozy, I slept well. Somewhat noisy during disembarking. We didnt spend much time in them, sleeping & getting dressed. Maneuvering in a small space was tricky, but we managed. We didnt need 1/2 of what we had packed. Bathrooms were small, showers, big.Read All Interior Upper/Lower (1A) Reviews >>
