Gary, I don't think it's been hacked to death. I started the post earlier this week but I think you were the only one to reply.
Norma, I was on the Elation on 2/2. There were many stories going around but the body was found and supposedly the husband did it. I don't know how exactly it was done. I was also trying to find out but no one here seems to know anything.

I came to this web site for information and looked back at some of the topics but found nothing about this incident in the last week, so I thought I would ask for a little help from some people in the know. i will not post again on this site because of people like you!!!!
Please don't let one person make or break your day. I hope you will reconsider posting on our boards, we usually are a friendly group, and hope that this doesn't leave a bad taste in your mouth.
Don't ever be afraid to say what you think here, but people are intitled to their opinions, even if we don't always agree with them.
I too have not heard of any details that are factual enough to report as of yet so I have not made any responses. When news is released it is of course always helpful to see it posted.
Norma, I don't think Gary was intentionally trying to demean you in any fashion. Without being able to see and hear people when they 'say' something one cannot see what inflections are made which can change the meaning and tone considerably. Yes, it could be construed as being rude but it also was not a personal attack against you or any one person so I could not delete this post for violating the rules of conduct. There is a thin line we have to walk to avoid censorship and yes we do find it better in the long run to err on the side of being generous and thinking the best of people. This website is well known as being the friendliest and the one that promotes the most family like atmosphere. We try hard to maintain that outlook of respect towards all. If you check out the Internet I think you will find that unfortunately most areas are infested with those that love to attack people verbally and use horrible profanity and question anything and everything posted. Fortunately we will not allow that type behaviour here.

I can understand your feeling from Gary's post, however, this board is actually a great place as I have been here since last summer and I think is the best. I will tell you that when Gary said it was hacked to death it was because he started a post back in Sept when a woman died on the Elation and it ended up with like 100 posts and folks were giving him a hard time. But I'm sure he did not mean to react to you in the manner he did. Other than you and myself who started a topic for this information apparently no one knows anything. Were you on the cruise in question, what city are you from that you heard news of it? I was on the one after that so the stories were flying! If you find out anything please let me know and please give cruisemates another chance, they really are great.

Hi, I had a similar experience about a month ago. Someone took what I said out of context and thought I was a terrible person. I felt so bad and wanted nothing to do with Cruise mates ever again. Then i received many emails saying I had my right to my own opinion. I love cruisemates and it has been very helpful to make our cruises a huge success. Stay with us please and bear with some of us. I have not heard about the incident you are talking about. I will be looking for new posts on the subjet tho to see how it all worked out. Char
I believe this is a different incident. I heard something about a woman who went missing just recently. I don't remember everything but I do believe it was the Elation because it was a ship that did the Mex. Riviera. She was travelling with husband and 2 kids. They were from Vegas. She disappeared after an argument with her husband but I dn't know what happened. I don't know if she was ever found.
The husaband did a inteview from Las Vegas and told of how he and his wfe had a big fight somewhere on board the ship and that he took there son and went to their cabin, he did not see his wife from that time on. Word here is no one is talking because they consider foul play, Carnival reps say it was just a rumor, still waiting to hear more.
Guess I was being overly sensitive sorry, but I went back thru the threads and could not find any infor on this subject.
This incident happened the week of Jan. 26 to Feb 2 Suppsedly the husband never saw his wife after their fight but they say her body was found in an outside cabin on the upper deck that was empty and found in the upper birth closed up, some people said that there was a terrible smell for a couple of days, but know one was checking the empty cabin until it became unbearable, the news.FBI etc. are not talking here.
My family and I were on the Elation jan 26 to Feb 2 and the whole thing has been bothering me ever since. The lady had a kid (maybe two??) in Camp Carnival with my 2 year old son. It is very upsetting....my husband talked to the husband on their way to pcik up the kids at Camp Carnival. I was so hoping to check this sight and find out they had found her in Mazatlan or something. Please post if any one hears anything. Thank you
The woman that disappeared on elation in late January of 2003 was Roberta, my best friend. Her, her husband and her 5-year old son were on the ship. Her and her husband got into a fight and went back to their cabin. Roberta stated that she was going to go for a walk. She never returned. Her body was never found. Her husband at first was a suspect but after giving him a polygraph, he was cleared of all charges. Everyone is under the assumption that after the fight, she jumped overboard. To this day, I still can't say one way or another what I believe happened. Her son is my Godson and he at this point is all that matters.
