 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.

    My family and I love the cruise experience and we highly recommend this kind of vacation to our friends and family. We are not the "sit-on-the-beach" type (at least for a whole week) so more
