Dining assignments can be booked before the cruise. Menus change daily and service is excellent. Breakfast and lunch are open seating. Read more

Specialty dining venues (for an additional cost) include: Chef’s Table, Nouveau Restaurant, Green Eggs and Ham (breakfast only), and Bonsai Sushi. A patisserie offers specialty coffees and sweets. The quality of food is good and the ingredients are fresh. The menu is varied, not just in the main dining room, but throughout the ship. Many guests breakfast on the lido deck, and at lunch choose the international dish of the day. A continental breakfast in one’s stateroom comes with streamlined service. Other meals, available 24-hours, include a variety of sandwiches and desserts. Dress up for a “Cruise Elegant” formal night.

Highlights

  • The ships name may be tough to define but you can describe it as “paradise, euphoria and cloud nine”. You can think of pools, food and sunshine.

  • You can enjoy a delicious brunch onboard Carnival Elation. You must also try our chefs amazing creations. Your mind will shout, “Wow!” Let it fill your body with joy (and ham). Your soul will beg for more of these delights.

  • In order to get pure elation one needs to be calm and quiet occasionally. Carnival Elation’s Serenity Adult-Only Retreat is exactly not meant for kids. They can get their elation on the waterslide.

  • You should be ready for slapping your knees non-stop as in the Punchliner Comedy Club laughter resonates. So, elation can even have a funny angle to it.
