Carnival Fantasy Next to Receive Upgrades
Carnival Cruise Lines' "Evolutions of Fun" initiative -- a $250 million revamp of its eight middle-aged Fantasy-class ships -- continues as the line announces the next ship scheduled for upgrades: the 70,000-ton, 2,052-passenger Carnival Fantasy will enter dry dock this fall.

The major beneficiary of this upgrade, phase two of the multi-million-dollar program, is the pool deck. Here's what to expect:

New aqua park. "Carnival WaterWorks" -- featuring a four-deck-high, 300-foot-long water slide; a separate 82-ft. triple-lane water slide; and a spray park.

Adults-only area. Serenity, an exclusive adults-only outdoor retreat aft, will feature chaise lounges and chairs, colorful umbrellas, two whirlpools, and bar service.

Redesigned main pool. Umbrellas (for shade) and faux palms (for ambience) will line the circumference of the pool, and a thatched roof will cover one of the two whirlpools at either end.

Carnival Imagination and Carnival Inspiration were the first two ships to receive the phase two sun deck enhancements (stay tuned for our new review on Carnival Inspiration). The other five Fantasy-class ships -- Carnival Paradise, Carnival Sensation, Carnival Elation, Carnival Ecstasy and Carnival Fascination -- will get the revamp by the end of 2009.

Phase one of the initiative, already complete, featured updated staterooms with flat-screen TV's, a renovated 12,000-square-foot Spa Carnival facility, refreshed dining rooms, a New York-style deli, an atrium lobby bar, a new conference facility, a patisserie, and new photo and art galleries.
