Ship Amenities

Wandering around Elation offers a true feast for the senses, starting with its interior atrium lobby designed by Miami architect Joe Farcus. It features a broad central boulevard, plenty of colourful décor, and all the ship’s main customer service desks. Enjoy live music in the Atrium Bar, pick up a sushi snack or relax in the handsome library and reading room. There’s also a casino and gaming area with bright lights and glamour galore, as well as a glittering show lounge and nightclub. Outdoors, guests can relax in the adults-only Serenity space with waiter service and comfy seats, or head to the main deck for a splash about in the family-friendly swimming area. Although you can’t walk all the way around the ship, there is a jogging track for fitness fans!

Cabin Amenities

All cabins are appointed to a high standard on the Carnival Elation, whether you choose a basic interior space or lavish suite. All standard cabins include private bathrooms, built-in storage space and complimentary toiletries, with most including queen beds for comfort. If you upgrade to an ocean view cabin, you’ll also enjoy more space than the interior designs, while suite occupants can enjoy the most room to stretch out and relax. Room service is available 24-7 to all guests.

Dining Options

From international cuisine to classic cruise fare, you’ll be spoilt for choice on the Elation. Head to one of the two main dining rooms for traditional American cuisine. These ocean-view spaces give you a choice of fixed or flexible dining times – not to mention waiters that keep you entertained with singing and dancing! In addition to the Imagination and Inspiration dining rooms, you have the option of the Tiffany’s Lido Restaurant which is open throughout the day and evening for casual buffet-styled eats. And when you’re in the mood for something different, enjoy gourmet burgers and handcrafted fries at Guy’s Burger Joint or a Mexican fiesta at Blue Iguana Cantina.


There’s entertainment around every turn on the Carnival Elation. A stroll down the central boulevard within the interior atrium leads you past multiple bars, lounges, and nightclubs, most offering live music or DJ-led dance tunes in the evening. For more formal entertainment, the Mikado Showlounge hosts cabaret productions and Broadway-quality song and dance revues in opulent, comfortable surroundings.

Sports and Wellness

Perfectly equipped for leisure, recreation and play, Carnival Elation hosts a stylish, airy spa on deck. The Spa Carnival is framed by floor-to-ceiling windows giving way to ocean views, positioned on the uppermost interior deck. Start your day in the gymnasium, featuring all the latest weight-lifting and cardio equipment, or exercise with friends in the fitness studios. The complex also includes a thermal suite with saunas and steam rooms, massage treatments, beauty salon services, and separate changing rooms for men and women. Feeling athletic? Sporty types can head to the basketball and volleyball courts, challenge themselves to a round of mini-golf or table tennis, or just run a few laps on the jogging track.
