Carnival Elation

Music from the grand piano in the six-story Grand Atrium sets an elegant tone for Carnival Elation. Try your luck in the casino, watch a show in the lounge or dance the night away in the nightclub. There’s even a large water park so the entire family can have fun splashing at sea. There is plenty of age appropriate supervised fun in the youth spaces. The adults can head over to Serenity, the adults-only area that offers bar service, ocean vistas and whirlpools. The dining options are as varied as the entertainment, with traditional main dining rooms or the alternative spots like Tiffany’s Bar & Grill, Mongolian Wok, Guy’s Burger Joint and Blue Iguana Cantina. Your trip on Carnival Elation will inspire you in ways that you’ve never been inspired on a cruise before.
