Ok, our group keeps growing. Three more have booked on, so we are up to six confirmed, with another 2-3 still talking of tagging along.

Would be interested to hear from anyone else planning on this voyage.

My partner and I just confirmed our reservations on the Elation 9/25. We live in Houston and will be driving to Galveston Sunday morning.

Ok, looks as though we have a group beginning to build. Look forward to meeting you all on board. Our group has early dinner (615 I think), and will be in the piano bar most nights after either dinner or the show. We'll be looking for you all!

Cruzeboy---

We'll be looking for you. Getting together to party in Cozumel sounds fun. We'll be in the piano bar on the first night aboard after the first show is over, and then, we should be hanging out in the disco after that.

See you in just a few weeks!

Default This sailing is cancelled...

Just got the call that they will be using the Elation to house evacuees from Hurricane Katrina. Carnival is refunding 100% but it may take 4 weeks to process. The article in today's paper in Houston only listed the Ecstacy as affected not the Elation. But I am glad that Carnival has committed to help out, apparently until at least March 2006. Oh well some other ship, some other day.

The Elation will do the Ecstasy trips, which means it will be 3 or 4 or 5 day cruises. Conquest will take over the 7 day.

Just got back from our Labor Day weekend trip and received a voice mail message from our travel agent about this cruise being cancelled.

We called in tonight and booked a new cruise on The Caribbean Princess for October the first.

Please see the new Caribbean Princess thread (and cross your fingers this cruise doesn't get cancelled).

For those of you considering a cruise, think twice before booking Carnival or using Cruises Only. I have traveled on Carnival serveral times and used Cruises Only many times only to be trown out with the trash when Carnival offered the Elation to house victims of the huricane.

We had a trip booked for the Sept 25 sail which has now been cancelled. Carnival did nothing more than offer a $100 cruise credit on a future cruise. The problem is Carnival nor Cruises Only has an interest in helping those of us who have had thier vacations cancelled. Carnival has other ships with space available, but rather than allow displaced customers move thier reservation to another ship with a similar itenerary, they require you rebook from scratch, and in our case at triple the fare. When I contacted my travel agent, Cruises Only, the rep also has no interest in helping us find a new trip. His response was find a trip you want and call us back. When I asked for his supervisor he hung up on me. I called back, spoke to a supervisor named Star. She assured me she would follow up on the service of the male rep that had hung up on me, however, no follow up.

We spent nine hours on web sites and phone trying to find another trip, fortunatly I found *edited for commercial content*. She was simpathetic to the situation and found a great rate on a Princess trip otherwise I would be spending this vacation at home. Thank you Quinn!

If you want service, think about any cruise line but Carnival and think twice before booking with Cruises Only.

"If you want service, think about any cruise line but Carnival .."

Although Princess Cruises has been purchased by the Carnival Corp., we can breathe a sigh of relief that Princess has not been "Carnival-ized". While I understand that this incident is isolated due to unforseen circumstances, it only adds to the LONG litany of Carnival's cut-rate careless ways.

I've always had good luck with Princess when it comes to quality and dependability. I'm sure those of you booked will, too.

Happy sailing!

I agree with the above post. Carnival has financially taken advantage of those of us that were previously booked on one of their cancelled cruises. I have sailed with them six times in the past. I will no longer take another Carnival cruise. The right thing to do was to allow those who had their cruises cancelled to transfer to another ship that had a very similar itinerary with the same sail date at the same cost paid on the cancelled cruise.

Shame on carnival!
