Carnival Imagination Overview

From Egypt to England to the Caribbean, the Imagination is a ship that delights in surprising guests with unique motifs and flights of fancy. The promenade is lined with golden sphinxes and other mythological creatures. Two exotic lounges are named after fabled Shangri-La and Xanadu. The library exudes the quiet charm of an English manor, while the El Dorado Casino constantly rings with excitement. Dine in your bathing suit by the pool, or dress up for international entrees at the Spirit Dining Room. For those who don't have a whole week to travel, these four- and five-night cruises from Miami to Key West and Mexico are simply ideal. Your dreams become reality on the Imagination.

Try everything! Even if an activity doesn't sound that fun or like you'll fit it, go anyways. The crew makes everything fun for everyone.

Dec 04, 2012

Eat breakfast in the main dining room. Food is fresher than the buffet and there was no wait.

Feb 04, 2015

Be sure to go to the Deli for a sandwich, good Pastrami. If you want to see more of the entertainment go for the early seating for dinner.
