Onboard the Carnival Elation Leaving New Orleans.
You can still see downtown New Orleans behind me.
5 hours of twists and turns through the Mississippi River from New Orleans to the Gulf of Mexico. Oil rigs light up the night in the Gulf of Mexico as we head for Cozumel. Great night scenes. A terrible storm the morning we left New Orleans. We couldn’t even leave the hotel lobby to get to the taxi, but by the time the ship left at 3pm it was a clear day. Perfect temperature and weather conditions as we leave port.
