Overall Member Rating
Destination: Western Caribbean
There was a total of 8 adults, 4 kids (18-20 yrs. of age) Processing in Mobile went very smooth, only problem was late leaving Mobile due to someone's flight was late getting in. Ship was suppose to pull out at 4 p.m. didn;t leave til about 5;45, if it had been me they would have not waited. Got processed in, boardered the ship, went up to the Lindo Deck had lunch, about 1;30 our cabin was ready, there was 4 of us to our cabin, we had enough storage room, put away our things, then put the luggage away, we don;t spend alot of time sitting in the cabin.
We had enough sea days we could sleep in, arrived in Jamaica on Tues. morning around 8, did the Martha Brae canoe ride, really enjoyed that, kids did the zip line with our adult friends, Jamaican people just pour their heart out letting u know how much they appreciate you coming to their island, very nice people. Boarded the ship left around 5 heading out to Grand Cayman Island, arrived their the next morning, was rather More surprised Grand Cayman Didn;t have a cruise port, we was taken to mailload by tender boat, shopped around Grand Cayman most of the day, boarded the ship late afternoon heading them to Cozumel, arrived in Cozumel around 10 a.m Wed. morning, we didn;t feel it was fair since the Imspiration was behind us that we had to let them dock before us, it was raining in Cozumel, but oh well no one would help that, did a quick taxi ride to Margaritaville, came back around the port did some shopping in the duty free shops, then back on the ship, heading back to Mobile,
I do have to say the staff on the Elation was very nice, the ship was at all times very clean, we did the buffet for breakfast & lunch at times it was crowdy, at night we ate in the dining room, our waiters were great. Arrived back in Mobile Saturday morning, we walked ourself off the ship, we live in Ft. Walton Beach which is about 1 1/2 to 2 hrs. east of Mobile, we was back home before 10;30, we had a great time & yes i would love to visit Montego Bay, Jamaica again. Less
