A Family Affair Aboard the Carnival Imagination

A Family Affair Aboard the Carnival Imagination

We always associate cruise ships with newly weds and empty nesters. After all, it really is romantic to spend your honeymoon on a cruise, whether it’s your first or fifty-first. But nowadays, cruise ships offer a great variety of activities that all members of the family, from the kids to the kids-at-heart, would enjoy.

Now, more than ten years later, the cruise line has updated the ship’s décor, and added new amenities to ensure that it stays competitive with the ‘fun family ship’ trend. The renovation sings to the tune of 40 million dollars, a significant investment for a relatively old ship, but fortunately the risks paid off, more or less. But you still have an inkling that it’s a ship past its prime, [...]
