Since our first cruise on the Elation, they have updated it to include the water park on top. The updates were very nice and we enjoyed Guys Burger as well as the other eating places that were added. On our first trip on the Elation as well as this one we did experience a lot of roughness as far as the sailing was concerned. Not sure if it was the ship or the water since the only times we've experience so much movement was on the Elation both times. Overall we enjoyed our cruise and experience. Our wait staff in the Dining Room was Godfrey, Ching and Bibiana. Ching was our main server and she (as well as the others) were wonderful. She remember our name after the first night and what we wanted to drink. As far as entertainment goes, I wish they would introduce something different. If you've been on several cruises you've seen the shows and it would be nice to experience something different. But, having said that our overall experience was great!

Our second cruise on the Elation

Cabin Review

Extended Balcony Grand Suite
Cabin ES
I can't remember the cabin # but it was the larger balcony. The room and balcony was very nice! There were 5 of us that was in the room and it worked well for us.
