I have sailed twice on the Elation, both times leaving from Los Angeles. It is a very nice ship. It has all the added extras... sushi bar & 24hr pizza. I have been on 1 of her sister ships and the lay outs seem to be the same but the decor is different on all of them. Both our cruises on her have been great and the decor wasn't to over the board with loud presentation. Hope that helps. Have fun!!!
She is the newest of the class of ships. She is also the first ship with the izod propellers that pull/push - opposite of the normal whatever that is.... haha Anyway it is a great ship and we had a great time on her out of Los Angelos in 2001. Can't wait to sail her out of Galveston - glad she is so close to home now! Sushi at the Champaign bar each night and $1 wine tasting at the Champagne bar - I NEED TO CRUISE AGAIN!! I'm having withdrawals after 4 months! Debbie
