Carnival Elation Ship

Carnival Elation

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 Café.


Cruise from one sunny tropical isle to another in the glittering turquoise seas of the Western Caribbean. A Carnival cruise to the Western Caribbean offers idyllic days of swimming, snorkeling, and strolling pearly white-sand beaches and romantic nights beneath the twinkle of clear, starry skies. Explore many wonderful ports of call on your Western Caribbean Cruise.
