 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 our tenth [or so] cruise with Carnival, and our sixth to the Mexican Riviera. We are unashamedly big fans of Carnival and of the West coast of Mexico. We more

    I'll preface my remarks by saying that I am not one who considers a cruise to be the vacation of choice, so if my remarks are a bit jaded, take that into consideration. Just more

    The reviews I read were so helpful in planning for our first cruise, I just had to write one of my own. We took this cruise for our 10th wedding anniversary; my husband and I originally more
