Maybe I should have titled this post, "never say never". For year I've said we would never sail on CCL based on things I've read and based on my sister's assessment of CCL but.....well, my daughter is only off work 5 days and I found a 5 day CCL cruise out of New Orleans. 5 days, 4 adults, 2 rooms for $2,600! My expectations are low as far as the shows but my 'kids' are 20 and 22 so we'll allocate some coin for gambling and take some cool excursions. Anyone cruised on Carnival Elation out of NO and can compare/contrast to DCL?
