Carnival Elation does 4-, 5- and 7-night Western Caribbean cruises from Mobile, Alabama. This 70,000+-ton cruise ship is a Fantasy Class ship, accommodating over 2,000 passengers.

Recently the recipient of a thorough refurbishment, Carnival Elation features Carnival WaterWorks (a fun aqua park), a large casino, a wonderful spa, a show room with live entertainment each night of the cruise (named Mikado), an internet café, Serenity Adults-Only Retreat, as well as many sports-related activities (such as mini-golf, a jogging track, ping pong, volleyball, a fitness center with a variety of equipment, swimming pools and a basketball court).

Those looking for a stateroom with a balcony should be aware that the only accommodations on board Carnival Elation that have such a feature are the suites.

Families with children and teens should be happy to learn that Carnival Cruise Lines features one of the best youth programs at sea. Their program splits your children into age-based groups: Camp Carnival is for 2-11 year olds, Circle "C" is for 12-14 year olds, and Club O2 is a teens club for 15-17 year olds.

You'll never go hungry on board Carnival Elation, as there is always something to eat on board this cruise ship. Among the dining options are 24-hour room service, a casual buffet (Tiffany's Bar and Grill), as well as beautiful main dining rooms.
