Staying Informed on the Carnival Elation
Find out all about the events and programs on the Carnival Elation through the ship's newsletter, Fun Times, which is placed in your room along with the towel animal of the day. The newsletter lets you plan your next day's cruising adventure - The Fun Times even lets you know what items are on-sale in the gift shops. The Carnival Elation's Fun Times also has an easy tear out portion called "Today at a Glance" which is a quick reference guide to the times and places of the various activities. Put it in your pocket for quick access. There is a "Cruise Channel" that gives the highlights of the ship and will replay certain activities that you may have missed.
Finally, the Cruise Director, the emcee for the cruise who will be a public presence throughout the cruise, will usually make the day's announcements in the morning. They are broadcast in the public areas of the Carnival Elation and on a video channel in your room. Make sure you are tuned to the appropriate channel.
Camp Carnival, the home of kids' activities, has their own Camp Capers detailing specific times and places of the kids' events. It's available just outside the pick-up/drop-off areas for the kids. A copy of Carnival Elation's Camp Capers is also given out at orientation at the beginning of the cruise.
