Carnival Elation - About this Ship

Refusrbished in 2017! The NEW design of the Carnival Elation is a celebration of the muses who inspire the arts, and the ship will inspire you… to have fun!

Carnival Elation won’t have a hard time convincing you, either. There are plenty of spots for a drink, from the laid back Gatsby’s bar to the jumping Jekyll and Hyde Dance Club to the always-swinging Duke’s Piano Bar. There are places for a tasty bite as well, with from Tiffany’s on Lido Deck to one of two grand dining rooms, and even the Musical Café.

If being a kid is more your thing, there is plenty for you to do. Age-appropriate, supervised activities are available from one of three youth spaces, there’s the video arcade… oh, and waterslides!

ENTERTAINMENT AND PUBLIC AREAS

Elation is loaded with bars, lounges, swimming pools, hot tubs, and show venues, all of which adhere to a theme that celebrates distinguished figures of literature, cinema, and music. Elation Way, the ship’s main promenade, is the gateway to the action. From the ship’s action-packed casino games to the piano tunes at Duke’s Bar, Elation offers activities to suit all types. Deck areas bustle with water activities, and live music animates the main Lido pool. Cruisers harboring a need for quiet time head to the Mark Twain Library or the Card Room.

Bars, lounges, and casinos:

  • Duke’s Bar: Regulars as well as newcomers are spotted at Duke’s where the pianist plays tunes by request each evening.
  • Romeo & Juliet Lounge: This laid-back dance club—with a hint of romance—is an inviting place to meet fellow cruisers and enjoy live music and deejays.
  • Cole Porter Lounge: “Karaoke kraziness” and live music performances are popular draws at this venue which also hosts the ship’s art auctions.
  • Casablanca Casino: High rollers frequent this gambling paradise where Craps, Blackjack, slot machines, and Roulette activities lure game players.
  • Gatsby’s Great Bar: Passengers can enjoy a lively conversation or catch an aperitif before supper at this speakeasy joint.
  • Jekyll & Hyde Disco: Open until the wee hours, this spot is a disco-goer’s dream for late-night dancing and revelry.
  • Drama Bar: “Funship speed dating” and Charades are just a few of the activities that attract singles and aspiring actors to this popular Promenade Deck hangout.
  • Plaza Bar: A great mid-ship gathering spot, the always active Plaza Bar is a popular place for guests to partake in a leisurely libation just before dinner or a show.
  • The Patio: Set poolside, this bar offers refreshing libations and ample shaded seating, perfect for Lido Deck people watching.
  • Mark Twain Library: Books and games piled high in glass-encased cabinets and ornate, polished woodwork make this warm and welcoming room a peaceful spot for quiet reading or game playing.

Swimming pools:

  • Main Lido Pool: This bustling pool complex is home to a corkscrew waterslide, snack bar, a stage, and plenty of sunshine.
  • Verandah Deck Pool: Located aft, this quieter pool is good for sunning and serves as an escape from the larger crowds.
  • Children’s Wading Pool: This petite pool built for the tots is a great place to splash and play.

Shows:

At the center of Elation’s packed schedule of entertainment is the Mikado Lounge, a 1,300-seat theater that hosts multiple comedy, audience-participation, and Vegas-style revues daily. Costumes and sets are elaborate, and the Funship dancers offer high-spirited, precision choreography. The two-deck high lounge also holds important informational meetings, such as the debarkation talk, for passengers.

  • Welcome Aboard Show: An engaging host and hostess, zesty choreography, and well-rehearsed dance numbers offer entertainment-loving passengers a taste of things to come while onboard.
  • Spin: Through stage and sound, guests are transported to exotic destinations in this Broadway-style production, which is complete with playful costumery and an elaborate, ever-changing set.
  • Carnival Legends Show: One of the Mikado Lounge’s biggest draws, the passengers’ raw talent—complimented by skilled Carnival dancers— is unveiled as they perform as Elvis, Sinatra, Madonna, or other popular icons.

Shore Excursions:

Carnival offers a wide range of shore excursions, including walking tours, kayak trips, trolley rides, lobster bakes, pub crawls, and wine tastings. A shore excursions talk, held in the Mikado Lounge and re-run on the cabin TVs, provides an overview of each activity. Passengers can book excursions online, onboard via cabin TVs, or at the shore excursion desk. No last-minute discounts are offered, but late-comers can often join a tour on the dock or swap a pre-booked trip for another one in the same port. A 25 percent fee is levied on any cancellations, and no refunds are offered on tours cancelled within 24 hours of arrival.

Some of the most popular offerings are:

  • Blow Hole Tour: A 25-mile ride along the scenic Baja California countryside leads passengers to La Bufadora, home to a natural sea spout spraying 60–100 feet of sea water into the air. After viewing this famous blow hole, passengers also have time for shopping in the local area before returning to the Elation.
  • Dolphin Swim: Participants of this shore excursion are placed into small groups where they nudge noses and playfully interact with friendly dolphins. Activities are lead by a knowledgeable instructor and include dolphin kisses, dancing, and dorsal fin tows across a large pool.
  • Whale Watching: A 100-foot, double-deck Catamaran takes passengers past the beaches along the Sea of Cortez to spots where whales and sea lion colonies can be viewed. A visit to the famous Lover’s Beach is also included in this two-hour coastal cruise experience.

KID STUFF

Elation’s youth experience includes free activities for four separate age groups ranging from 2 to 17 years; these programs run from early morning until late evening daily. Options include everything from toddler tumbling to teen dance-offs. Young passengers engaging in scavenger hunts, ping-pong tournaments, or arts and crafts activities can also be seen onboard. Facilities include the 2,400-square-foot Camp Carnival Children’s World, a children’s play pool, and a video arcade.
