I came across this article and found it very interesting:

Some cruise ships improve with age

I was wondering...what other Carnival ships have undergone recent refurbishment, and has anyone been on some of the revamped ships both before and after? Curious to hear opinions...

I have only been on the Fantasy after the initial refurbishment phase that was before the Water Works phase.

Here is a link to see the progress with the Evolutions of Fun enhancements.

We have been on the Imagination and the Fantasy since the Evolutions of Fun was added.

The Imagination (January of 2008) was a brand new ship.

The Fantasy used a different shipyard and it really struggled. It did add the new "stuff" (having sailed it many times before and after the re-do) and EVENTUALLY it was ok....but not the WOW brand new factor we experienced on the Imagination...and that was a disappointment.

Obviously not a big enough disappointment to stop us from cruising on her - 4 times since the refit....but disappointing none the less.

I'll probably book the Fascination when it is finished next year.
