Carnival Cruise Line
General

In a nutshell... we''re all about fun vacations at sea and ashore! A Carnival cruise features day and nighttime entertainment like stage shows, musical performances, deck parties, casinos and more. (Like what? Like waterslides!) We invite our guests to come as they are, and we make everyone feel right at home with comfy staterooms, attentive service, casual and elegant dining, plus a variety of bars and gathering places indoors and out. Guests enjoy this unique experience against the backdrop of some of the world''s most beautiful seaports.

Our 26 ships operate 3- to 24-day voyages, departing from every coast in the U.S., as well as Canada, Puerto Rico and Barbados. While we''re best known for Caribbean cruises, we sail to other exotic and amazing destinations like Mexico, Alaska, The Bahamas, Europe, Hawaii and the Far East. Additionally, Carnival Cruise Line Australia now has three ships, and offers cruises from Sydney and Melbourne to New Zealand, the Pacific Islands and Singapore.

Carnival Cruise Line proudly supports important causes like St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.

Ship
Carnival Elation
Overview

Carnival Elation was built to celebrate the muses who inspire the arts. Carnival guests like you can expect this ship to inspire you... to have tons of vacation fun.

Not that Carnival Elation is going to have a hard time convincing you! As you head toward your destination, you'll find plenty of spots to visit for a tasty bite - options like the taco-'n-burrito goodness of BlueIguana Cantina, the burgers-'n-fries combo of Guy's Burger Joint, plus all the rotating goodness of Lido Restaurant. (Our suggestion: bring an appetite and try them all!) Carnival Elation also features places to enjoy a drink, from the all-chill Gatsby's Bar to the friendly poolside rivals RedFrog Rum Bar and BlueIguana Tequila Bar... and don't forget everybody's friend, the always-swinging Duke's Piano Bar.

If being a kid is more your thing, we have plenty of ideas for how to spend your time. Activities that are age-appropriate, supervised - and of course, fun! - are available for the actual kids at one of three youth spaces. Then there's the video arcade... oh, and did we mention the slidey, splashy, squirty Carnival WaterWorks? We didn't, but we should have, because both of these are fun for all - all ages, that is!

Carnival Elation also now has Balcony staterooms, each one featuring an outdoor space designed to help you make the most of the natural sea breeze. You'll see, and feel, that this ship is ready to inspire everyone in new ways.

Jacksonville, Florida
City Jacksonville

Florida's Jacksonville is located in the northeastern corner of the state in Duval County. Did you know that Jacksonville is the largest city in Florida? The city of Jacksonville accommodates each and every lifestyle known. The city offers the busy city life that includes spirited nightlife, sporting events, and greyhound racing. Also, the city includes such activities as extraordinary shopping, dining, and entertainment.

Nassau, Bahamas
City Nassau

Nassau, the capital of New Providence Island in the Bahamas, is a majestic, scenic adventure that you do not want to miss. New Providence island, Nassau has an attractive harbour, a colourful blend of old world and colonial architecture and a busy port. The tropical climate and natural beauty of the Bahamas has made Nassau a popular tourist destination, with a reputation for relaxing days and an exciting nightlife. Lynden Pindling International Airport, the major airport for the Bahamas, is located about 10 miles west of downtown Nassau, and has daily flights to major cities in the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, and the Caribbean. Summertime temperatures rarely exceed 33 degrees Celsius (92 degrees Fahrenheit) and the winter months have daytime temperatures between 20 and 26C (68 and 80 F), rarely falling below 10C or 50F. The city's proximity to the United States (180 miles or 290 km east-southeast of Miami, Florida) has also contributed to its popularity as a vacation spot, especially after the banning of American travel to Cuba. The world famous Atlantis resort on nearby Paradise Island accounts for more tourist arrivals to the city than any other hotel property. The mega resort also employs over 6,000 Bahamians, the largest outside of government.

Half Moon Cay (Little San Salvador Island), Bahama

Half Moon Cay has the attraction of other private islands plus some! This 2500 acre island, prides itself in maintaining the natural ecology; it protects 2400 of its acres by keeping them wholly unspoiled. Located one hundred miles SE of Nassau, its large protected bay used to be a famous refuge for pirates (or as famous as a pirate refuge can get). Enjoy nature activities, beach fun, or just swing in the hammock to the island steel band. Make sure to take at least one dip in the beach which is only chest deep 60 ft out!
