All about the Carnival Elation

The Carnival Elation was built in 1998. It's considered a small size ship. Coming in at 855 ft long and 103 ft wide, it's roughly the length of 2.4 football fields, as wide as 1.9 tractor trailers and the same height as a 10 story building.

The Carnival Elation can hold 2,052 based on double occupancy (two people per room) and more when you take into account 3rd and 4th passengers. When you compare the total tonnage of the ship to the number of passengers, the Elation has a space ratio of 34. Depending on the ship, this number can range from 30 to 52 (with a bigger number meaning more space per person) so this ship has less space per person than average.

Pools and Hot Tubs

Nothing beats relaxing by a pool with a nice drink in hand as you feel the fresh sea breeze pass by you. The problem is that with thousands of people on a ship, there's not always room. We're a firm believer that if you want to just spend all day for 7 days in a pool, a cruise isn't for you. You would have a much better bet choosing a resort with a huge pool complex. That being said, a quick dip in the pool can be nice on a hot day. The Carnival Elation has a total of 1 pools and 4 hot tubs.

Tired of loud kids and splashing? 2 of the hot tubs are adults only.
