How it Ranks: Carnival Elation ranks #1 out of 24 Carnival Cruise Lines Cruise Ships based on an analysis of expert and user ratings, as well as health ratings.

Both majestic and luxurious, the Elation combines the lavish entertainment and casino action of Vegas with the pampering spa facilities of Palm Springs. Sip an umbrella drink in the soaring six-story atrium. Jog around miles of sun-splashed teak decks. Cool off in an oasis of swimming pools and whirlpools, or rejuvenate in the enormous Spa Carnival. Enjoy fine dining every day in an elegant dining room, al fresco on the Lido Deck or at a 24-hour pizzeria.
