this was our 6th trip on the elation to mexico. the weather was wonderful but something was lacking with the service. maybe since they prepay the gratuity for you the personnell do not feel obligated to work for their money. do not get me wrong they work hard but the personal touch was not there. the matre dei had his head down at the desk at the door on the last nite. usually he practically chases you down to say good bye . looking for his envelope.
