  3. Carnival Elation
I chose Carnival because I have used them in the past but this trip was not worth the money. The hallway that our cabin was on smelled of smoke and something else (not sure what). We got a cabin with a view but the windows were so dirty we couldn't enjoy the views. Other that the evening dinner, the food was not great. The ship was late leaving the port due to difficulties. Once we got to the 1st stop, it was late letting the customers exit the ship to go on shore excursions. That made it late getting back on and getting ready for the captain's dinner. Once the cruise was over, they asked that you be out of your cabin by 8:30 a.m.at the latest but once again, PROBLEMS. We left our cabin at 7:30 a.m. It was 11:30 before we got to get off the ship. For 4 hours we got to sit around with nothing to do to pass time. Then we had a 6 hour drive back home. Not much entertainment to comment on. I will definitely not use this cruise ship again.
