I'm sure they are all great. I've been on Elation so I am a little partial. Also, Elation is a little newer.

they are all 3 Fantasy class ships, so I guess I would pick based on the ports. If the ports don't matter to you, then go with the Elation, it already has 2 votes

You don't mention which itineraries you're considering. But, the five day Inspiration to GC and Cozumel is pretty hard to beat. Grand Cayman and Cozumel are both first rate stops and sailin out under the Sunshine Skyway bridge it pretty spectacular in itself. You can find average temp info here.

Thanks Cleveland Rocks,
I was looking for a weather average for my cruise in November...at least now what to bring. Maybe you would know if there are places to buy summer clothes...like shorts, and not short shorts either...not pretty on a 60 year old

Thanks

Since they are all the same class ship, I also would select based on itinerary and ease of getting to port.

Good luck!
