Carnival Imagination

Ship Rating:

When this ship debuted with its muted, sophisticated tones and warm, earthy colors, it was a departure from the high-energy, vivid decor of Carnival's earlier vessels. Oriental rugs and richly upholstered chairs in the Curiosity Library make it look like a room in an English manor. Gilded sphinxes and other mythological creatures line the promenade, and brass fittings and marble floors gleam in the Pinnacle Club. Look for the antique slot machines from the 1930s and '40s in the El Dorado Casino, named after the fabled city of gold. Dance the night away in Illusions Dance Club, or browse Carnival’s fine art collection in the ship’s Art Gallery. Guests are invited to join in the fun at Hasbro, The Game Show and have a laugh at Punchliners Comedy Club & Brunch presented by George Lopez.

Out on deck, enjoy resort-style pool areas and Carnival WaterWorks, the ship’s very own water park. This ship also features a nine-hole mini-golf course and an adults-only “Serenity” area that offers bar service, ocean vistas and whirlpools for relaxation. Kids will have a blast participating in the games and activities planned at Camp Ocean, and teens will have their very own spot to relax and hang out with new friends at Circle “C” and Club O2. Satisfy your cravings at a 24-hour pizzeria, snack bar and salad bar all located in the Horizon Bar & Grill. Or, enjoy the ambiance and service of Imagination’s two main dining rooms, where perfectly prepared cuisine is served by an attentive waitstaff.
