Carnival Cruise Line has announced that they will be adding upgrades to another one of their Fantasy class cruise ships in a multi-million dollar renovation that will see many of the popular Funship 2.0 upgrades added to Carnival Imagination.
Carnival Imagination will go into drydock from September 4-25, 2016 and will add a variety of exciting new food and beverage concepts including the following:
- Guy’s Burger Joint
- BlueIguana Cantina
- RedFreg Rum Bar
- Alchemy Bar
- BlueIguana Tequila Bar
- Cherry on the Top
- View Cruises on Carnival Imagination
These terrific new venues complement the ship’s hugely popular array of on-board features that live up to the line’s motto of “Fun for All, All for Fun,” including a WaterWorks aqua park with a 300-foot-long Twister slide, the Serenity adults-only retreat with oversized umbrellas and comfortable chaise lounges and the exclusive Seuss at Sea program in partnership with Dr. Seuss Enterprises.
Christine Duffy, President of Carnival Cruise Line, gave the following statement: “Carnival Imagination provides a convenient, value-packed West Coast cruise option and with these new enhancements we’re making this fantastic ship even better. With three year-round cruise ships sailing from Long Beach, Carnival is the number one cruise line in Southern California and the investment we’re making to enhance the Carnival Imagination further bolsters our leadership position in this important market.”
Carnival Imagination operates year-round three- and four-day Baja cruises from Long Beach. The three-day cruises depart Thursdays and visit Ensenada while four-day voyages depart Sundays and not only stop in Ensenada, but also Catalina Island.
Carnival is the only cruise line to operate three ships year-round from the West Coast. In addition to Carnival Imagination, Carnival Inspiration operates three- and four-day Baja cruises and Carnival Miracle offers week-long Mexican Riviera voyages. Together these three ships carry more than 550,000 guests from Long Beach – the most of any cruise operator.
