Be prepared to sail on the Mississippi River for 6 hours.
I will say, I was a little concerned about the weather. But on our first day at sea it was pretty decent weather, a little windy but nice.
Cozumel was nice, but very touristy. We were almost late to our Deluxe Sail & Snorkel due to the fact you have "HAVE" to walk completely thru this port building while people were dragging their feet looking at all the liquor and cheap cigs.
The Elation was quite old. but the cruise was VERY reasonable. The food was just ok. The one thing my 13 yr old loved was the 24hr pizza and ice cream. The comedian was funny. The food was mediocre. For the most part, every employee was very friendly and eager to answer any questions we had. Over all, if I book this ship again, I would like to do the 5 day cruise.
