The Carnival Elation is a 71,909-ton ship and is 855 feet long. After the 2017 drydock, it has most of the Fun Ship 2.0 features that have been added to the Fantasy class ships, a guest capacity of 2130 and an on-board crew of 920. Elation has been retrofitted with all the Carnival "Evolutions of Fun" upgrades in 2017 that it did not receive in previous dry docks.

History

Elation was the first cruise ship to be equipped with an Azipod propulsion system. The pods give Elation better maneuverability compared with her sister ships.

On November 5, 2011 Carnival Elation was moved from Mobile, Alabama to New Orleans, replacing Carnival Ecstasy, which was moved to Port Canaveral, Florida. With Elation relocated to New Orleans, Carnival ceased operations in Mobile, Alabama.

Although Carnival Elation did not receive the full "Evolutions of Fun" upgrade, she received the Punchliner Comedy Club "Fun Ship 2.0" upgrade in 2014.

In October 2017, Carnival Elation completed a month long dry dock in which she received multiple upgrades including all new cabin decor, Waterworks, Guy's Burger Joint, Blue Iguana Cantina, RedFrog Rum Bar, BlueIguana Tequila Bar, a new nine-hole mini-golf course, and revamped Camp Ocean kids' clubs. She also had a new deck added (Deck 14, Grand) that includes two Grand Vista suites with floor-to-ceiling windows, 22 junior suites, two scenic ocean-view cabins and 12 inside cabins. The previous Sundeck has been moved above the Grand deck and is now deck 15.
