 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.

    All and all a bad experience and we will not be using Carnival again. It first started with our assigned room M265. The carpet was wet and had a bad mildew smell for the 2 days we were more
