Carnival Elation is a Fantasy-class ship sailing from Jacksonville to Bermuda, the Bahamas, and the Caribbean. Launched by Carnival Cruise Line in 1998 with a capacity of 2,052 passengers, Elation is actually one of the smaller ships in the Carnival fleet. Smaller doesn’t mean boring though, as Elation is just as vibrant and festive as other Carnival vessels. A diverse mix of families, couples, and single partiers create a lively onboard atmosphere, and passengers should be ready for a high-energy adventure.
The ship’s design reflects the festive atmosphere, with loud and colorful interiors that early Carnival ships are known for. Children (and kids-at-heart) love Elation’s the three-decks-high Twister Waterslide, as well as the City Sports Park area with mini golf, ping pong, and volleyball. Adults will enjoy the Serenity area, Duke’s piano bar, and the Drama Bar filled with live music. When it comes time for dinner, go for the Mongolian Wok, Pizza Pirate for a quick slice, the lido buffet, or the main dining room. Those looking for family fun at sea can check out the Hasbro-inspired “board games come to life” show, A variety of Broadway-style musical productions are also presented in the ship’s theater.

anyone that goes to Progresso BIG TIP:::: ride the free shuttle to the town, they sell excursion there. SAME AS CARNIVAL and 1/3 the price we paid $35 for an all inclusive and upon arrival saw people from Carnival that said they paid $85. Every cruise on the ship can be bought on the free bus ride into town
