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.
