Went on the Fascination in June and loved it! How does the Elation compare? I know they are the same class of ship, but has the Elation had the upgrades like the Fascination? What are the differences in the ships? Any info. is greatly appreciated. Thanks!
Elation lacks both the balconys and the waterworks upgrade. Thats why it was brought from Calif imo ...so it would be closer for upgrades (which seem to go best in the Bahamas)
Thanks for the info. We would be getting a GS like we did on the Fascination - so the lack of balcony rooms wouldn't be an issue. We also didn't use the waterworks area on the Fascination. Do you think we would really notice the lack of upgrades on the Elation compared to the Fascination?
We were on Elation a week ago and loved it! It doesn't look old at all. The crew was fantastic...very friendly. As mentioned it does not have the "water park" yet but there is a slide at the regular pool. It also has the Serenity Deck.
