Imagination has two main dining rooms, both serving the
same menu. (See menus on Imagination Profile Page).
Both dining rooms are open for dinner. However, only
one is open for breakfast (and lunch on sea days).
For dinner, the dining rooms follow the traditional set
seatings with reserved tables and times. However, a
flexible dining option has been introduced in one dining
room. Other meals are open seating.
The Pride Dining Room is located amidships and seats
626. Since the dining rooms on the Fantasy class are
named after other ships, one might be tempted to conclude
that this room is named after fleetmate Carnival Pride.
However, as indicated by the ship model in the room, it is
actually named after Seabourn Pride of sister company
The Spirit Dining Room is near the stern
of the ship. It is very similar to the Pride
Dining Room in decor and layout. Both
rooms have a variety of table sizes ranging
from large tables to tables for two. Both
rooms also have purpose-built buffet
areas. The Spirit is slightly larger (636
seats versus 626) than the Pride.
The Imagination Promenade features two dining venues. The
Sushi Bar (above) offers light Japanese-style dishes while Vittorio's
Café (below) offers specialty coffees including Lattes, Cappuccinos and
Espressos, fresh pastries, as well as milkshakes. Tables and chairs are
located near the windows at various spots along the Promenade (left).
The main buffet area is a
large room aft on Verandah
Deck called the Horizon
Bar and Grill. It is
divided into several stations
ranging from a carvery to a
deli. There is also a salad
bar and a 24-hour pizzeria.
In the evenings, the area
becomes an informal
alternative restaurant called
The Seaview Bistro.
Guests can enjoy their meals outdoors (left) or at tables inside the
In a sheltered area opening out to the pool area
is the Poolside Grill, which serves light fare
and is open for breakfast and lunch.
