Photos: Carnival Elation Cruise Ship After Dry Dock

Carnival Elation just underwent a multimillion refurbishment at the Grand Bahama Shipyard in Freeport, Bahamas. During the refurb, she ship got a new water park, food venues, and new staterooms. The cruise ship may be approaching 20-years old, but there’s no slowing down Carnival Elation yet.
