Out of San Diego? I cruised the Elation on a 6 day out of San Diego in 2007. It was a great smaller ship easy to get around and tender out of.

Is one of your ports Cabo San Lucas because that is a tender port. You will find it's nice to tender off this ship, shorter lines. Is this your first cruise?

The Bahia hotel is a great hotel to stay in San Diego. http://www.bahiahotel.com/

The Elation will be smaller which is nice you get to know more of your fellow cruisers on a smaller ship. Here is my photo gallery from Elation http://www.cruisemates.com/gallery/view.php?id=3459 and my cruise review. http://www.cruisemates.com/articles/.../elation39.cfm
We also did a side trip to the San Diego zoo here is these picture and the beach pictures are from the hotel. http://www.cruisemates.com/gallery2/view.php?id=613 This is a picture of the harbor seal the hotel rescued (she is blind) and it swims in a special pool in front of the hotel (no you can't swim with her) .

Here is a link to ship photos. I don't know if it has been through the refurbish or not. If it has pictures may be a little different from ship now. We really enjoyed the ship. We sailed it when she was in Port Canaveral in 2006.
