Pros:There was one hot tub reserved for adults. Nudity was only permitted on one deck.
Cons:24-hour noise, bowtie pasta every meal. Over 13? Get off the Fun Ship, fossil.
Horrible, horrible experience! Do not go on this cruise unless you love being subordinated to hundreds of rude kids. The Elation caters to children, who outnumber the adults on board in an approximate ratio of 3 to one. Food is almost unedible--24-hour pizza, all-day hot dogs, hamburgers, ice cream. Formal night--a joke. Sit in a three-couple booth with hicks dressed in blue jeans and their "fancy" cheap sport coats. Order prime rib and with it you are served only a tiny plain baked potato. Staff is bored and noticeably disinterested. The worst food in the world is served in the Tiffany restaurant. One-half of the rusted swimming pool is dedicated to a kiddie slide. The other half is one foot deep. All night, every night, the kiddies stomp, run, scream, slam doors, and use the noise makers they acquired in the ports of call. Thinking of having a drink before dinner? Go for it, but drink at your own risk--kids, kids, and more kids playing chase (loudly). Complain? Don't bother. You will be told that the kids are free to run and scream all over the entire ship. If I was given a free trip on the Elation, I would most certainly refuse. This is not a vacation. Do not take this cruise unless you are masochistic. The best part is disembarkation, which takes several hours, but so what? Finally, you will be free to go home. If you enjoy slumming it, go for it. A cruise on the Elation will make you appreciate life on shore, even if you live in a homeless shelter.
