Traveled with children

This cruise was a Christmas present/family reunion and our first cruise ever. We traveled with in-laws and our 9 month and 3 year olds.

Embarking was fine. We got there a bit early and had to wait, but we were near the beginning of the line and things went smoothly. We had an oceanview stateroom. I have to admit it was a little cramped with the pull down bed and a crib. We had plenty of storage though for clothes, diapers, a few toys, formula, bottles, etc. The beds and bedding were our favorite thing about the Elation. A little hard for some but perfect for a couple of Navy vets!

The food was a little disappointing. Most of it was good but not what I had expected from what I've heard about cruises. There were plenty of desserts so that made everything okay!
