 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.

    This was my wife's first cruise and my third. Check-in was smooth and quick, but we were a tad early (1PM). We were told that our cabin will not be ready until 1:30. That was no problem so we more

    I'll start off by saying, you get what you pay for! Considering this cruise was only $400 a person. I booked this cruise with 6 girl friends for their spring break from grad school. That was more

    If you enjoy being trapped in a Wal-Mart and like being Nicholed and Dimed for everything then this is the cruise for you. The ship is dated, the clientele less then glowing and the more

    I went on this cruise with my husband and 18 and 22 year old children. It was our second cruise. We'd heard that the ship was not new, but refurbished. It was well kept up and clean. Staff was more

    I was so looking forward to this and was pretty disappointed. Not only were the foreign guests absolutely rude but the so called "unlimited" food and entertainment was NOT unlimited! Most of more

    This cruise was my first time on Carnival as I wasn't expecting much. When we entered our stateroom, it smelled of cigarette smoke. We asked for the situation to be fixed. Within an hour, the more
