Default Imagination or Fascination???

Me and my husband and another couple are planning a cruise in June. We are deciding between these two ships. Can anyone tell me something about them. We went on the Fantasy ship last May and had a great time.

The Imagination was the first ship that I ever went cruising on. I fell in love with cruising from that moment on. I strongly recommend it. It is a larger ship than the Fantasy and besides that the service was outstanding.

I think you mean a newer ship than the Fantasy, both these
ships are the same size.

I sailed the Fascination in May 98. It was a great ship with very atttractive public areas. I don't think there would be much difference in ammenities on these two ships as they are identical in size and layout. The Fascination has a Hollywood type theme and the Coconut Grove Dining area is quite attractive. In May 98 it was sailing the Southern Caribbean however I think recently it has changed itineraries to a 4 day cruise.

Both ships built in 1995 i believe. Same design. Different decor. Thats it.

Both are the same Fantasy class ship...HOWEVER,
the Imagination has already been through the Waterworks refit which means IT has the Adult Serenity area and other upgrades that the other ship does not have yet.

We just sailed a back to back on the Imagination and had a wonderful time!!
