We have been on the Elation many times. I happen to think that it is a great ship. Big enough to have plenty of things to explore, not so huge that I feel "lost at sea". I'm not a fan of the mega liners that feel like a hotel, but I get seasick easily now, so the really old, small ones don't work for me either. Elation is just right! Last time we were on her, some friends went along and they loved it, too.
