Carnival Elation travels year-round to the Bahamas, Bermuda, and the Caribbean, offering 1- to 8-night cruises from Jacksonville and Port Canaveral, Florida.

When Was Carnival Elation Last Refurbished?

Carnival Elation recently underwent a multi-million-dollar renovation in 2017 that included the addition of 38 all-new staterooms, including two Grand Vista suites that feature floor-to-ceiling windows, 22 junior suites, and two ocean-view staterooms as well as 12 interior staterooms. The décor of all staterooms was updated to reflect a bright and calming island theme, inspired by the destinations visited by the ship. Balconies were also added to 98 existing rooms. In addition to the accommodation updates, Carnival Elation also received four new bars and dining venues, including Guy’s Burger Joint, the RedFrog Rum Bar, BlueIguana Cantina and BlueIguana Tequila Bar. Finally, the addition of Camp Ocean, a new play area designed for children ages 2-11, a new WaterWorks Park with a 300-foot long Twister slide and a new mini golf course completed the updates.

Activities & Entertainment

Fun can be found around every corner on all Carnival Elation cruises. One of the main highlights is the Mikado main show lounge, where you can see a different eye-catching, mind-boggling performance every night. From singers to musicians to comedians to magicians to even game shows, there will always be some form of outstanding entertainment to catch there. Another highlight of the ship is the WaterWorks aqua park, which features a spiraling water tube slide, two racing slides, a  Slip and slide your way down the fun Twister Waterslide! spray park and kiddie slide, surrounded with comfortable lounge chairs so your whole family can have fun together.
