Carnival Cruises with the Carnival Elation

Carnival Elation

From classic cocktails in Gatsby’s Bar to fun on the waterslides – the Carnival Elation packs plenty of excitement, despite being one of the smaller ships in the Carnival Cruise Line Fleet. Designed to offer fun for the whole family, the Carnival Elation is perfect for first-time cruisers and experienced sea-farers alike. You can also take a look at our cruises for beginners.

Since 1998, the Elation has been charming and delighting families with fun-filled cruise holidays. The ship has received a number of upgrades and refurbs to ensure it never falls behind in the fast-paced cruise industry. Carnival’s Evolution of Fun upgrades have helped the Elation stay ahead of the competition when providing family-friendly cruising for all ages. With a selection of kid-friendly amenities and children’s clubs – the Elation is an ideal option for young families looking to holiday on the seas.
