I was on the Elation in November. We were on the Riviera deck right across from the elevators and I never heard anything. I liked the convenience and would not hesitate to have another room close to the elevator. I believe we were also by the elevator on the Wind. No complaints there either.
The room on the Elation was great. The biggest bathroom (shower) we have had so far. The bed was fantastic! I would love to go on the Elation again. My only complaint was the buffet was so dark and gloomy. Go to the back of the buffet diningroom and sit outside. It is more private back there. We loved it! I hope to sail on the Elation again someday. I loved the itinerary.
