 Carnival Imagination

The Carnival Imagination is the fifth of the Fantasy - class ships. She looks a lot different now than she did during her inaugural cruise in 1995. As part of Carnival's 250 million dollar project for this class of ships, called "Evolutions of Fun", the Carnival Imagination has been re-imagined. This fun ship now has a Water Park featuring a four story, 300 ft. water slide, and a children's water play area, to name a few of the new additions. The main Lido deck pool has been been upgraded to a resort style pool. They didn't forget the adults during this ship's transformation. Men and women alike will enjoy the new Serenity Adult Retreat Area that is complete with two new whirlpools.

    Too crowded. We were in lines for everything. There weren't enough seats in informal dining; we had to go to a completely different part of the deck just to find a place to sit down. There more

    Overall this cruise experience rates as a 4 out of 10. It's an older ship but it was very clean. There is always someone cleaning even late at night. I HATE that it's only 2 irons onboard the more
