 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.
