Carnival
OVERVIEW

Carnival Imagination was the fifth ship built as part of
Carnival Cruise Lines’ Fantasy-class. (

of sister ships
Carnival Fantasy, Carnival Fascination and
Carnival Sensation
) These eight nearly identical ships, built
during the 1990s, were very successful when they entered
service and remain popular today.

Carnival Imagination was one of the first Fantasy class ships
to undergo an extensive refit program called Evolutions of
Fun.  The ship spent 33 days being refurbished in 2007 with
some $40 million worth of upgrades and improvements.  
While not an unrecognizable change, the ship was
significantly altered so as to remain competitive as we enter
the second decade of the new millennium.

The interior of Carnival Imagination is largely the work of
Carnival’s designer
Joe Farcus.  For each ship he designs,
Mr. Farcus develops a core concept which he then uses as
inspiration for the design of the various public areas.  On
Imagination, the concept was: “Legendary Symbols of
Antiquity.”  Consequently, one sees ancient Egyptian deities
and Greek-style winged men here and there in the public
rooms.  However, unlike his later work, the core concept is
not as evident.  As a result, some of the public areas look
more like a modern hotel than on later Carnival ships.

During the Evolutions of Fun refit, some of the public areas
were re-done with new upholstery and upgraded carpeting.  
In other areas, the colors were changed.  The net result is
that the ship has a more restrained feel that is perhaps more
in keeping with the times.   This is not to say, however, that
all traces of the spectacular are gone.  Imagination can still
impress.

Carnival Imagination is homeported in Miami and does short
cruises to the Bahamas and the Western Caribbean.   
Passengers tend to be a mix of first-time cruisers and veteran
cruisers out for a short getaway.
