Loved my first cruise on the Elation and loved the Fantasy also. Not to say I don't enjoy the larger ships such as the Glory, I do, but the Elation was also wonderful. I can't wait to go again, the first time the service was good, both in dining room, the stewards, and on the lido deck, and everyone else works hard trying to clean up after all of us.
Can't wait to go for my Christmas cruise..... So sorry you did not have the experiences I have had.
