Sixty percent of Elation's 1,021 cabins (a total of 618 accommodations including both standard cabins and suites) have ocean views and there are 408 inside cabins. The vast majority of cabins measure 185 square feet and are basically furnished with king size bed (can be converted into twins), small desk and chairs, a telephone, TV, large closets and sets of drawers containing ample storage space, and large bathroom/shower. The bedding, of course, is the much-lauded Carnival Comfort Bed system. The shower is especially powerful and well designed.

Elation was built just prior to the shift toward constructing ships with an abundance of cabins with verandahs, so just the 26 demi-suites (250 square feet, half-size balcony) and 28 full suites (400 square feet, full-size balcony) come with them. Full suites are the only accommodations with whirlpool baths. Check the Carnival Elation deck plans for more info.

Cabin stewards do an excellent job of making up the rooms twice daily, and they also display a special talent of towel folding where they shape towels into fanciful creatures every evening and leave them on your turned-down bed along with chocolate squares.
