Am in the process of planning another cruise and was wondering about the Imagination. I have heard some nice things about the ship, although everyone says it is in need of some TLC. Are there any plans for refurbishment in the near future?

Just got back from Imagination... here's the skinny...
-yes, the ship has seen better days, but that won't bother you because...
-the staff is the best and most friendly of any Carnival ship I've been on
-the food was OUTSTANDING - the 2nd night we had Prime RIb and it was probably the best I've ever had
-the casino is lively and staff is great there too
-the shows are great
If you go on Imagination, go to the pinnacle bar and make a point to see Adinar (the main bartender) and tell him Jamie sent you. He'll take care you.
