We were on the Elation in Nov and we really enjoyed it. I found the staterooms to be some of the nicest. Beds were great and the shower was the nicest we have had. The hallways are very bright orange and was very cool.
The only downfall I found is that the lifeboats are on the lido deck so they do obstruct a lot of view. I also found the buffet room to be very dark and gloomy. Not light and bright like most. Tip: at the very back of the ship outside the buffet you can enjoy your meals. There are only about 10 tables. We really enjoyed this more private area. very nice!
We did feel more motion than on larger ships. All in all I would not hesitate to cruise the Elation again.
