Carnival elation tour

Carnival Elation (formerly Elation) is a Fantasy-class cruise ship operated by Carnival Cruise Line. Built by Kværner Masa-Yards at its Helsinki New Shipyard in Helsinki, Finland, she was floated out on January 4, 1998, and christened as Elation by Shari Arison Dorsman. During 2016, in common with all of her Fantasy-class sisters, she had the prefix Carnival added to her name. She currently sails year round on four- and five-day cruises to the Bahamas out of Jacksonville, Florida.

The Elation is 70,367 ton ship and is 855 feet long. It has a guest capacity of 2052 and an on-board crew of 920. Elation has been retrofitted with part of, but not all the Carnival "Evolutions of Fun" upgrades, lacking such features as the WaterWorks water park. Also, unlike sister ship Carnival Ecstasy, Elation was not retrofitted to include additional balconies.
