 Carnival Elation

You will be elated when you walk into this ship's six story atrium lobby. The Carnival Elation was the first Carnival ship to be equipped with Azipod propulsion. This allows the ship to move in any direction using electric rotating motors instead of fixed propellers and a rudder. The theme for this ship is Muses Who Inspire Artists.

    Went for an onboard family reunion. Had a very large group. I will have to say, with very little cruising experience, the Port of New Orleans was by far the best experience. The staff more

    Fair to good cruise, maybe. Outside of the restaurants the food was poor. On Lido and rear of Lido, the food was less than acceptable as a whole. We did enjoy the buffet of pork steak more
