About Carnival Elation
Carnival Elation was one of the first of Carnival Cruise Line's popular Fantasy-class ships and has been delighting cruisers of all age groups ever since. Chock full of amenities and activities, she was designed to create a fun-filled vacation for everyone in the family. Welcoming and comfortable, the 70,367-ton, 2,052-guest ship is sure to give you the time of your life! Fabulous upgrades in 2009 have modernized her as part of the line's "Evolutions of Fun" refurbishment program, including an adults-only sundeck, remodeled staterooms, suites and bathrooms and flat-screen TVs. Further enhancements are scheduled for late 2017.
Excitement is everywhere on the Carnival Elation, from its bustling multi-deck atrium to the spiraling three-level-high Twister Waterslide offering thrills at every turn. Relaxing amenities also abound, such as three swimming pools, six Jacuzzis and the Mark Twain Library, a quiet area where you can catch up on your reading. Indulge in a soothing treatment such as a hot stone massage at the 12,000-square-foot Spa Carnival. Try a new style at the Beauty Salon and keep in shape at the Fitness Center.
