Carnival Imagination Pool, Water Slides, and Sunbathing
The Carnival Imagination has one saltwater pool, which is located mid ship on Deck 10 (Lido Deck). The pool dimensions are 43' by 14', and it is 4' 6" deep. Two whirlpools are by this main pool. Typically, pool hours are from 8am to 10pm.The area around the pool is well suited for sunbathing on 2 tiered decks.
At the opposite end of the main pool is a stage which, during most hours of the day, there is some activity going on -- anything from a Caribbean band to a member of the ship's staff leading an activity or game. Typically, the main pool hours are from 8 AM to 10 PM.
The Carnival Imagination's Carnival WaterWorks is located aft on Deck 11 (Verandah Deck). The park includes water sprays, and two waterslides. One towers four stories high and is 300 ft. of corkscrew turns. The second slide, a straight 82 ft. in length, has three lanes and is designed for racing!
The waterslides typically operates from 10 AM to 5 PM and there is a 42" minimum height requirement.
For grown ups, aft on Deck 9 (Promenade Deck) is the Serenity Retreat, which provides lounge chairs, umbrellas, two whirlpools, and a bit of peace and quiet.
Carnival Imagination Pool, Water Slides, and Sunbathing Tips:
When arriving in the pool area, you will need to sign-out a towel. There will be a 22 USD charge per towel to your onboard account for each towel you fail to return. These are sturdy towels and if you want to purchase one, you can from the order form in your room.
Babies & Infants in Pools: Carnival's official policy is "no swim diapers, children must be potty trained." Camp Ocean stresses this point to all the families that bring their kids. We have not heard reports on whether the policy is strictly enforced.
While Carnival does its best to discourage this, sunbathers do show-up at 8 AM and try to hog the lounge chairs for the day.
