Enjoying the view!
One of many towel pets!

This cruise was so needed after a hard 6 months with my step dad beating cancer, & some other stuff leaving him in a wheelchair. This was a huge family ordeal with 14 of us needing some serious R&R & Carnival Elation did not disappoint. We've cruised together years before, but now some of us had children & significant others. The things I was super impressed with are:

-Embarkation & Debarkation were pretty painless due to faster to the fun. I would absolutely add this on if you are considering it.

-The staff was super nice. Jordan is pure sunshine, he would greet you by name at the Tiffany's buffet, & ask how you were, what your plans are for the day, & his smile is super contagious. Seriously if you don't smile after interacting with him, you should take a look at how you are living your life.

Easy peasy because we were faster to the fun

Half Moon Cay

Beautiful majestic island. The water meeting the beach is truly stunning.
