Sail Date: Dec 2019
Cabin: Junior Suite

My wife and I sailed on the Elation for the December 14th-19th Amber Cove/Grand Turk cruise. We are from SC, and booked a night at the Radisson Resort at the Port for the evening before the cruise. Had planned to park at the port, but instead opted to park at the cruise parking lot at the hotel. The hotel staff was very competent, parking was a breeze, and the shuttle service was excellent.

When it came time to embark, there was a situation on board that delayed boarding. We were not told what it was, and it delayed boarding by about an hour and a half. All the embarking passengers were held in the terminal until boarding. Boarding commenced at 1:45 PM.

Our suite was ready when we boarded, so we dropped our carry on bag off, and picked up our room keys. Off to the Lido deck for lunch at Guy's Burgers. The burgers do not disappoint, but I feel they could be better.

Cabin Review

Junior Suite

Very clean cabin high up on the ship. These cabins move a little more than the lower ones. Loved the suite experience, and will never sail again except in a suite!
