 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.

    This was my first time on a Carnival ship. It was the beginning of Spring Break and you could certainly tell from the number of young children and teenagers. Next cruise for me will more

    When arriving in Galveston Port, the weather was rainy and windy. Boarding the ship took a while, and was to be expected for the large number of people boarding. However, there was more

    Space on this ship is more than adequate. Cabins are roomy for a ship and so are the bathrooms. Since this is a fairly new ship, everything is in really good shape. Food was much better more
