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:

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.

  1. Sean I agree with you. We live near Tampa, so we go out of there a lot. This a baby ship compared to some of the newer ships. The Paradise is suppose to go in for a facelift, either the later part of this year to beginning of next year. Can’t wait. Happy Sailing to you. Going on my 26th cruise to Cuba.
