Exclusive Haven Debuts As Part of Line's $250 Million 'Evolutions of Fun'
Initiative

MIAMI, Aug. 29 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- When the Carnival Inspiration
emerges from its month long dry dock in early October, it will be the first
Carnival ship to feature a brand new adults-only area called "Serenity."
Designed as an ocean-going oasis for relaxation, tranquility and
comfort, the new "Serenity" areas are part of Carnival's $250 million
"Evolutions of Fun" ship enhancement initiative which is resulting in a
dramatic transformation of the line's eight "Fantasy-class" vessels.

The "Serenity" areas will be located in a secluded aft section of the
ship that provides for spectacular ocean vistas. The stunning new design
will feature plush chaise lounges and chairs. Colorful oversized umbrellas
and a separate relaxation area will also provide the opportunity for guests
to enjoy this new area in shaded comfort. Two whirlpools will be available
to offer the ultimate relaxing escape.

Complete bar service will be provided by attentive waiters offering a
tempting selection of icy cocktails and frozen concoctions. For guests
interested in a snack or casual meal, the Lido Restaurant is conveniently
located nearby.

"We continually strive to provide a high quality cruise vacation that
provides our guests with a wide variety of choices and experiences," said
Vicki Freed, Carnival's senior vice president of sales and marketing. "Our
new 'Serenity' retreat will provide another great new option for those
seeking a relaxing alternative to the other exciting outdoor activities and
entertainment facilities available on board," she added.

The new "Serenity" adults-only areas are just one component of
Carnival's wide-ranging "Evolutions of Fun" initiative, cruising's most
ambitious ship enhancement program. Other new features to be incorporated
into "Fantasy- class" vessels include the Carnival WaterWorks expansive
aqua parks featuring 300-foot-long corkscrew water slides, double-lane
racing slides and various water-spray apparatus, as well as a new design
style and features for the main pool areas.

The Carnival Inspiration and Carnival Imagination will be the first two
"Fantasy-class" ships to include all of the "Evolutions of Fun"
enhancements, which are scheduled to be completed by the end of the year.
By 2009, all "Fantasy-class" ships are expected to be completed, including
the "Serenity" areas and fabulous new transformation of the open decks.
Additional components of the "Evolutions of Fun" program include fully
remodeled staterooms and suites including new bathrooms, flat-screen
televisions in staterooms and select public areas, atrium lobby bars,
updated sound and lighting systems in various lounges and clubs, coffee
bars, nine- hole miniature golf courses, new art and photo galleries, New
York-style delis in the Lido restaurants, and purpose-built conference
facilities.

"Evolutions of Fun" also encompasses a number of family-friendly
enhancements for the "Fantasy-class," including new children's play areas
-- part of the line's top-rated "Camp Carnival" program -- new facilities
for the "Club O2" teen program, custom-designed spaces geared toward 12- to
14-year olds, and 50 interconnecting staterooms - perfect for large
families or family gatherings.

The program also includes a complete overhaul of the 12,000-square-foot
"Spa Carnival" facilities, with new private treatment rooms, state-of-the
art exercise equipment and a host of cosmetic enhancements.

Digital renderings of the new "Serenity" adults-only area, along with
images of various other "Evolutions of Fun" initiatives, including the
"Carnival WaterWorks" aqua parks and redesigned pool areas, can be viewed
at http://www.evolutionsoffun.com.

Carnival's eight Fantasy-class vessels are part of the line's fleet of
22 "Fun Ships" which operate voyages ranging from three to 16 days in
length to the Bahamas, Caribbean, Mexican Riviera, Alaska, Hawaii, Canada,
New England, Bermuda, Europe, the Greek Isles, and South America.

Makes me wish we were still on the Imagination-:(

We'll see how well they enforce it, though.  That's usually a joke. . .:P

I don't know...this is an official area, they are making no bones that it is adult only and are touting it quite publicly.

Unlike the old areas the had signs or ddidn't have signs. There is no room for interpretation. I think they are going to be more strict about this and that the people using it will be more inclined to speak up.

There is no pool so that should keep the kids out.

Hot tubs and booze...nothing there for kids. :devil:

That sounds like a dream!!!!!!!  Too bad they couldn't have found a place for even a small, plunge-type pool, though.  But, it doees sound heavenly, and if they will enforce the adults-only policy (unlike RCCL :shoot me:), I think they will have a winner!!!!!!!

Siince I have never sailed on Carnival,  is the class ships they are talking about their newer  class of ships?

The Fantasy Class ships are the older Carnival ships. Looks like they are bringing them up to date to make them more desirable:big grin: Good move.

very good move and as most are used for shorter Itins, more desirable for a quick couples get-away.
