Carnival Elation

Ship Rating:

Music from the grand piano in the six-story Grand Atrium sets an elegant tone for the Carnival Elation as guests are welcomed aboard for a fun-filled cruise vacation with plenty of activities, entertainment and dining options. Elation's Way, the broad promenade that spans the length of the ship, is a great place for people-watching and fabulous nightlife. Try your luck in the Moroccan-style Casablanca Casino or take in a show in the two-level Mikado Lounge. For music and dancing, stop in at the jazzy art deco-style Duke's Piano Bar or dance the night away in the Jekyll & Hyde Dance Club. Relax and treat yourself to a massage at Spa Carnival, or if you’re a sports enthusiast, visit the City Sports Park where you’ll find a nine-hole mini-golf course, padded jogging track and basketball court. Afterward, take a dip in one of Elation’s two pools. Tiffany's Bar & Grill, which serves everything from pizza and hamburgers to fresh salads and desserts, is a casual alternative to the main dining rooms. This ship also features an adults-only "Serenity" area that offers bar service, ocean vistas and whirlpools for relaxation. Carnival Elation
