Carnival Elation's Highlights

The design of the Carnival Elation is a celebration of the muses who inspire the arts, and the ship will inspire you... to have fun!

Carnival Elation won't have a hard time convincing you, either. There are plenty of spots for a drink, from the laid back Gatsby's bar to the jumping Jekyll and Hyde Dance Club to the always-swinging Duke's Piano Bar. There are places for a tasty bite as well, with from Tiffany's on Lido Deck to one of two grand dining rooms, and even the Musical Cafe.

If being a kid is more your thing, we have plenty for you to do. Age-appropriate, supervised activities are available from one of three youth spaces, there's the video arcade... oh, and did we mention waterslides? We didn't, but we should have, because they're fun.

Carnival Elation's Highlights

The design of the Carnival Elation is a celebration of the muses who inspire the arts, and the ship will inspire you... to have fun!

Carnival Elation won't have a hard time convincing you, either. There are plenty of spots for a drink, from the laid back Gatsby's bar to the jumping Jekyll and Hyde Dance Club to the always-swinging Duke's Piano Bar. There are places for a tasty bite as well, with from Tiffany's on Lido Deck to one of two grand dining rooms, and even the Musical Cafe.

If being a kid is more your thing, we have plenty for you to do. Age-appropriate, supervised activities are available from one of three youth spaces, there's the video arcade... oh, and did we mention waterslides? We didn't, but we should have, because they're fun.

The design of the Carnival Elation is a celebration of the muses who inspire the arts, and the ship will inspire you... to have fun!

Carnival Elation won't have a hard time convincing you, either. There are plenty of spots for a drink, from the laid back Gatsby's bar to the jumping Jekyll and Hyde Dance Club to the always-swinging Duke's Piano Bar. There are places for a tasty bite as well, with from Tiffany's on Lido Deck to one of two grand dining rooms, and even the Musical Cafe.

If being a kid is more your thing, we have plenty for you to do. Age-appropriate, supervised activities are available from one of three youth spaces, there's the video arcade... oh, and did we mention waterslides? We didn't, but we should have, because they're 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.

[Type] => General ) [114] => Array ( [Title] => Ship Summary [Content] =>

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.

Carnival Elation's Highlights

The design of the Carnival Elation is a celebration of the muses who inspire the arts, and the ship will inspire you... to have fun!

Carnival Elation won't have a hard time convincing you, either. There are plenty of spots for a drink, from the laid back Gatsby's bar to the jumping Jekyll and Hyde Dance Club to the always-swinging Duke's Piano Bar. There are places for a tasty bite as well, with from Tiffany's on Lido Deck to one of two grand dining rooms, and even the Musical Cafe.

If being a kid is more your thing, we have plenty for you to do. Age-appropriate, supervised activities are available from one of three youth spaces, there's the video arcade... oh, and did we mention waterslides? We didn't, but we should have, because they're fun.

Ship Summary

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.

If being a kid is more your thing, we have plenty for you to do. Age-appropriate, supervised activities are available from one of three youth spaces, there's the video arcade... oh, and did we mention waterslides? We didn't, but we should have, because they're fun.

Ship Summary

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.

Ship Summary

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.

There are places for a tasty bite as well, with from Tiffany's on Lido Deck to one of two grand dining rooms, and even the Musical Cafe.

If being a kid is more your thing, we have plenty for you to do. Age-appropriate, supervised activities are available from one of three youth spaces, there's the video arcade... oh, and did we mention waterslides? We didn't, but we should have, because they're fun.

Staterooms: Carnival Elation

Oceanview

Oceanview
Catch a glimpse of what's going by from your Ocean View stateroom aboard Carnival Elation, where you'll get views you won't find anywhere on land. Don't miss sunrise and sunset at sea - your comfy stateroom is the best way to experience these! Two twin beds (convert to king). Chair. Full bathroom with shower. 3 closets. Picture window.

Interior

Interior
An Interior stateroom is the most affordable way to cruise, and Carnival Elation's interiors are not just cozy, but are full of things you'd expect from any Carnival stateroom: a full private bathroom, Carnival Comfort Collection linens and just-a-call-away 24-hour room service.

Interior Upper/Lower

Interior Upper/Lower
A Carnival Elation Interior Upper/Lower stateroom creatively maximizes space for a pair of cruisers. These staterooms feature all the same amenities as other Interior staterooms, with a different layout - including one Twin bed, and either an upper Pullman or sofa bed. They also feature linens from the Carnival Comfort Collection, a full private bathroom and more.

Port Hole

Port Hole
Carnival Elation's Porthole staterooms give you the classic seafarer's view times two - a pair of round windows providing an affordable view of the ocean. If you tire of ocean-gazing, there's plenty more to do onboard, but 24-hour room service is one amenity you can enjoy as you continue to take in the view.

Grand Suite

Grand Suite
A Grand Suite aboard Carnival Elation features even more space than the standard suite - plenty of room in your room! This stateroom is loaded for an unparalleled experience: VIP check-in, a huge balcony, and even a convenient dressing area with vanity.

Junior Suite (obstructed view)

Junior Suite (obstructed view)
As you step into a Junior Suite aboard Carnival Elation, you can't help but feel that you're stepping into luxury. With VIP check-in, more indoor space for stretching out and an outdoor balcony made for fresh air and great views, try a Junior Suite for a private oasis away from home. (Note that rooms of this type have obstructed views.)

Scenic Ocean View

Scenic Ocean View
Your Scenic Ocean View stateroom aboard Carnival Elation provides the best view of the sea that lies ahead of the ship, with views unlike any on land. And you'll get more of them, too, with floor-to-ceiling windows providing plenty of looking-glass for gazing at the natural wonders of the sea... and let's not forget sunrise and sunset.

Balcony

Balcony
Balcony staterooms were designed for maximum sea breeze and the most stunning views, so look to a balcony if you're looking to cruise aboard Carnival Elation. Any time you're in your room, you're just steps away from your own personal outdoor oasis, featuring the sort of sea view you can also feel.

Aft-View Extended Balcony

Aft-View Extended Balcony
Aft-View Extended Balcony staterooms feature a larger balcony for more lounge-around room, more kick-back space; not to even mention some of the best stern-side views you'll find anywhere. Get ready to relax as you gaze upon Carnival Elation's gentle wake from your spacious balcony.

Junior Suite

Grand Vista Suite

Grand Vista Suite
If you’re looking for the greatest room on the ship, look up. The Grand Vista Suite is the biggest, located on the uppermost deck… and all this altitude has a way of also elevating the view. As do floor-to-ceiling windows that make sure nothing gets in the way. Even more convenience and comfort come standard, like a huge balcony made for stretching out, a tub that’s great for doing the same, a convenient walk-in dressing area, plus VIP check-in.
