Carnival Elation
Overview

Carnival Elation was built to celebrate the muses who inspire the arts. Carnival guests like you can expect this ship to inspire you... to have tons of vacation fun.

Not that Carnival Elation is going to have a hard time convincing you! As you head toward your destination, you'll find plenty of spots to visit for a tasty bite - options like the taco-'n-burrito goodness of BlueIguana Cantina, the burgers-'n-fries combo of Guy's Burger Joint, plus all the rotating goodness of Lido Restaurant. (Our suggestion: bring an appetite and try them all!) Carnival Elation also features places to enjoy a drink, from the all-chill Gatsby's Bar to the friendly poolside rivals RedFrog Rum Bar and BlueIguana Tequila Bar... and don't forget everybody's friend, the always-swinging Duke's Piano Bar.

If being a kid is more your thing, we have plenty of ideas for how to spend your time. Activities that are age-appropriate, supervised - and of course, fun! - are available for the actual kids at one of three youth spaces. Then there's the video arcade... oh, and did we mention the slidey, splashy, squirty Carnival WaterWorks? We didn't, but we should have, because both of these are fun for all - all ages, that is!

Carnival Elation also now has Balcony staterooms, each one featuring an outdoor space designed to help you make the most of the natural sea breeze. You'll see, and feel, that this ship is ready to inspire everyone in new ways.
