Fun Family Get away on the Elation!

We enjoyed our time on the Elation. She is a lovely ship, very well maintained and the staff was excellent. Cruising with kids is a little different than cruising without, but it is a very hassle free vacation for a single parent like me. I will break the review down into sections. Embarkation: We loved New Orleans, driving in New Orleans was interesting with all the one way streets. At the ...

This is my 3rd Carnival cruise and second to Progreso and Cozumel. When we went before we were on the Carnival Holiday which is now not sailing out of the US. Positives: Fantastic service staff that were always willing to go above and beyond. Great food in the dining rooms. Buffet was a different story. Decent ports. Awesome cruise director. Negatives: Dated interior. ...

Just got back from our cruise out of new orleans on the ecstasy 7 night to jamaica, cayman, and cozumel. My only other cruise experience was with my then 20 yr old daughter two years ago on the destiny, same port. We had a great time as we had hoped, spent too much time in the casino, but with my lady friend hitting a 450 jackpot and me a 1000 jackpot on keno machine and doing ok at the ...

Carnival Ecstasy 10-13-11 Mixed Review

We boarded the Ecstasy on 10-13-11 for a 4 night cruise to Cozumel to celebrate my 40th birthday. We are experienced cruisers and kinda knew what to expect on this short trip. First, let me say it is obvious there are budget cuts on the 4 day cruise. We have done this 4 day cruise in 2007 and we noticed huge differences in dining, at both the buffet and the main dining room. As far as the ...

Stayed one night pre-cruise at the Wyndam Riverfront. Nice 3 star hotel. Lots of hot water and great beds. This was my first cruise with Carnival. My previous cruises have been on Princess and Royal. Chose this short cruise to give Carnival a try. Embaraktion: Huge room full of people, 75% of which were carrying 12 packs of soda? I thought maybe they did not sell it on board. Give you ...

DADDYOFTHE7SEAZ went on his second cruise with CCL. Hats off to Carnival for providing me with another great vacation and I know that Mother Nature is out of your control.Myself and the wife 45 and 38 and our 2 kids 10 and 15 boarded an Amtrak out of Memphis to NOLA. We love riding the train. We arrived that afternoon around 4:00pm, it's just an 8hr ride from Memphis. Based on Tripadvisor reviews, ...

I cannot for the life of me figure out why so many people complain about this awesome little ship!! Obviously there standards are too high!! While I have no other cruise lines to compare it to, the value we received in booking this cruise was fantastic!! Where else can you go for 5 nights out of country, have all your food provided to you (and even more than you could possibly eat), a nice room ...

We are a couple that has been on five cruises with Carnival. We traveled with two other couples. One couple has been on a Carnival cruise with us before, the other couple had never cruised and was celebrating their 25th wedding anniversary. We are all in the late 30's to early 50's age range. We drove from Iowa down to New Orleans, staying at two hotels along the way. The first night we stayed ...

Carnival Ecstasy Review 10-22-2011 sailing out of New Orleans -Our Final Ecstasy Cruise This was our 5th Fall Ecstasy Cruise. The first 4 were out of Galveston, our closest home port. We hate to see the Ecstasy leave TX so we wanted one more cruise on her before she goes to the East Coast. We will miss her. She is our favorite. We love the smaller ship and the great affordability and value ...

We just returned from a 5 night Western Caribbean cruise on the Carnival Ecstasy. This cruise marks my 5th, and I had good and bad things I noticed. First, the good: The entertainment staff was EXCELLENT. This was far and away the best group of musicians we've seen. There is a variety guitar player named Jerry. He is a small, older Asian man, and when you watch him, you don't expect ...
