The 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 Cafe.
If being a kid is more your thing, we have plenty for you to do. Age-appropriate, supervised activities are available from one of three youth spaces, there's the video arcade... oh, and did we mention waterslides? We didn't, but we should have, because they're fun.
Carnival Elation Facts
Habro, The Game Show
You have played Connect 4 and Yahtzee, but have you ever played giant versions of them onstage in a competition that puts your gaming skills to the test? You'll have your chance when you take part in Hasbro, The Game Show. From SORRY! SLIDERS to YAHTZEE BOWLING, CONNECT 4 BASKETBALL, OPERATION SAM DUNK and SIMON FLASH, you can team up with your friends and family to win great prizes, all in front of a live audience. Be sure to check your daily on board itinerary for show times so you don't miss out on the action or the prizes.
The Punchliner Comedy Club
There is chuckle-funny, then there is laughing-so-hard-you-can-barely-breathe funny. To take our Punchliner Comedy Club talent way over the top, we have teamed up with renowned comedian and TV personality George Lopez. George is our curator of comedy, our finder of funny, our locator of laugh-out-loud (sorry, we will leave the jokes to him), helping select talent for our fleetwide Punchliner Comedy Clubs.
Serenity Adult Only Retreat
Somebody at Carnival knows just what you need, and it's pretty much exactly the Serenity Adult-Only Retreat. Look, you'll still be on the same ship as the kids, the hoopla, and all the Carnival-style excitement but you could easily forget, because when you are at Serenity you could not be further from it all. The world you will find yourself in is one of complete peace, sea breezes, swaying hammocks and, of course, a nearby bar. It's the place to get done the kind of stuff you just can't seem to do anywhere else reconnect with your partner, finish that book, or do absolutely, blissfully, nothing at all.
When was the last time you got up and danced at the theater? Playlist Productions takes tunes you know and presents them like you’ve never experienced before past favorites become full-blown musical productions featuring singers and dancers bringing down the house. Enjoy the spicy sounds of Latin Nights, or the larger-than-life favorites (and personalities) of Divas. Don't forget Motor City which will have you dancing in your seat or even The Brits!, a swingin revue of your across-the-pond favourites. Enter the center of groove with the passionate Heart of Soul. Rounding out the lineup is the anything-but-square Getaway Island, the arena-shaking sounds of Epic Rock, the piano-pounding 88 Keys, the totally bad-meaning-good 80s Pop to the Max, plus the funky, sophisticated and not at all exclusive Studio VIP, where everyone’s welcome to come and get down!
Above the ship you will find the shining sun, but that's not all basking in its rays is a gleaming symbol of fun, a monument to merriment a sign of splashy-good times to come. Spot the spiraling Twister Waterslide atop your Carnival ship and you can be sure that your vacation comes complete with twists, turns and squeals of thrilled delight. Countless gallons of water course through the entire length of this slide, so you're by no means dry when you start, but by the time you reach the end hundreds of feet later you reach new levels of soaking, splashing down in that classic waterslide photo-finish: hands-up, eyes wide and nothing but exhilaration on your face.
Go from normal vacationer to world-traveling art whiz in one cruise flat Carnival offers such a variety of educational and enlightening seminars that we should hand out Art History degrees at the end of each cruise! We may not be an accredited university, but your cruise features an Art 101 lecture series designed to be your entrance into this vibrant world. We will go from the earliest cave paintings to the modern masters with stops at topics like the Renaissance, Baroque, Surrealism and Pop Art and cover both theory and technique. You will walk away with a spectrum of knowledge to use at your next art auction or to elevate your cocktail party chatter.
The karaoke crowd can always count on you to put on a show when you take the stage with a backing track . But imagine just imagine what you could do with a full band behind you. Now stop imagining and get yourself on a Carnival cruise, where you can find out for sure. Pick a song pick your song and do it. Live guitar, bass and drums have your back, not to mention backup vocalists to hit those ‘ooh’s and make the performance sparkle. (By the way, even if you weren’t gifted pipes of gold, everyone is welcome at Superstar Live just give it all you’ve got!)
On their Carnival cruise, kids can enjoy all the best parts of summer camp and family vacation, all in one! At Camp Carnival, they'll start by splitting up into three different age groups: 2 to 5 years, 6 to 8 years, and 9 to 11 years. Our counselors, each with education or childcare experience, are there to make sure everyone in these small groups has an amazing time. And they do, with tons of fun-filled, age-appropriate activities including arts and crafts, dancing, movies, toy-time and video gaming! When it’s mealtime, kids get their own menus, with faves like mac & cheese, chicken nuggets, and more. And when the sun goes down, we offer Night Owls (fees apply) so kids get to stay up late having fun, while their parents also enjoy themselves well into the night.
Signature Dining After a full day of fun, get ready for a delicious dinner, including fresh lobster and an extensive wine list.
