Seems as though a bunch of "guests" have beaten the snot out of the Elation in the year that's passed since my daughter and I were aboard out of New Orleans. Although she's dated (but never married) we found her to be clean, well-kept, with good food at the right temperature. I must admit I stayed away from the buffet so I can't comment on the grits. Everything I ordered for breakfast was fine in the MDR. See for yourself in my video.
