Default Elation 8/1/04 Q's

My husband and I , 21 & 22, will be on our honeymoon and we were wondering if anyone else out there has ever been on Elation to answer a couple Q's. Or if you will be aboard?

We were wondering what the average price for liquor beverages and soda? For a seven night cruise what is the average spent on beverages for two ppl? Lastly, we are driving down there, so is there a certain parking lot that we need to park in. Or is there only one for Carnival?

Thanks, hope some of you will be aboard.

Sorry, we are renting cars one way, so I haven't really researched parking options. I have read about EZ parking in Galveston that is cheaper than the ship lots, but I have also read that it can be a bit of a wait for the shuttle to take you to the ship. Here's the link to their website http://www.ezcruiseparking.com/ . I think it's about half the cost of the cruise lot.

Judging the "average" amount spent on alcohol is tough. It all depends on the person. I have spent as much as $300 and as little as $80, just depends on how much I allow myself. Princess will allow you to buy a bottle at the bar to drink during the week, we then buy a fountain card and carry around our flask of crown to add to our Coke. This cut down our grand total significantly. Carnival doesn't allow you to buy it and drink it on the ship, so you have to "sneak" it on. An empty liter size plastic iced tea container works for whiskey and any clear pop will work for vodka/gin.

I would highly recommend EZ parking. They are right off the main street to the pier. No matter where you park you will have to wait a few minutes. We really didn't wait very long at all to get on the ship. It's half the price, very secure, and easy! Their website will give specific directions. It was only $35.00 for the whole week compared to $60-70 for the other lots.

Enjoy your cruise!!!
