I chose this cruise because it was zero dollars and I just had to pay port fees. The food on board was not appetizing. The buffet had a small selection of choices. Desserts tasted like they had just been taken out of the refrigerator. There wasn't much to do on the cruise. The excursion to Amber cove was a bore and the food there wasn't good either. Bathroom in the room always smelled horrible and like it hadn't been disinfected in months. Even after using lysol I brought with me it still smelled. Towels were dirty. The only good part of this cruise was Grand Turk. That is a beautiful place. I would not cruise on the elation again. I have never been as bored and ready to go home as I was on this ship. The staff is nice and friendly though. I'm glad the cruise was 0 dollars because I would have felt that I wasted my money.
