Signed up for a Carnival Cruise as a get away from 10 months on the road. Left from Port Canaveral, Florida, which is much easier than Miami. With Miami really need to know Spanish to get around.
Was 5 days of fun filled cruising, but let’s start by checking out the ship. The Carnival Elation is a 23 year old vessel, however, well maintained. Staff is from over 50 nations, and as with all lines staff are English speaking and accommodating. Some ship pics..
Food was amazing and plentiful. Plan to pack on at least 5 pounds, but what surprised me on this cruise was folks getting into the Christmas spirit with decorated cabin doors…
And an ugly sweater contest – what fun and even the young’ins partake. Many families are on the cruise, cheaper than babysitters, and the kids seem to enjoy…
Every night on the ship was entertainment by an amazing troupe of dancers and singers. They also serenaded in Christmas music and dance. What a festive time and even the Captain got involved….
Tomorrow: More Fun
