Defunct Cruise Lines
The carnival elation was the first cruise ship to be equipped with Azipods for propulsion. The pods give the Elation better manoeuvrability.
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. or Cool off in an oasis of swimming pools and whirlpools Other options in entertainment include a wide variety of singers, comedians, bands and musicians performing either out on deck or in one of the many clubs and lounges, Elation also has a nine-hole mini-golf course which was added in 2009 as part of an upgrade on the ship.
There are also many traditional cruise ship fun and games that take place on a daily basis that attract substantial passenger participation such as bingo and trivial pursuit competitions.
