Welcome to CruiseReviews 50+stillcruzin, and welcome home! I'm glad to hear you had a good cruise, sorry the weather didn't cooperate. The Elation is a great ship and I'm glad you had wonderful staff. Sorry about the voucher, too. I've not booked a cruise through Orbitz, but have done air through them. I'm not that impressed, either.
Let us know when you book your next cruise! I like the Eastern, too. Southern is awesome. Oh heck, it's all great when your on board!
