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 until the Carnival Fantasy returned to the port in 2016.

In October 2017, Carnival Elation completed a month long dry dock during which she had an extra deck added and various modifications to her public facilities.

In June 2018, Carnival Elation was named the "Best Refurbished Cruise Ship" at the TravelAgeWest WAVE Awards.
