Oh no, the news are covering how the Magellan (ex. Holiday) is still laid up after CMV's bankruptcy.

She's for sale online, but if no one buys her, she's going to join her younger and bigger sisters in the scrap yards. We have to try to get Bahamas Paradise Cruise Line to buy her as her sister ship Grand Celebration is currently sailing for them. Here's the link to her online listing.

Yes, fully agree. We must try to persuade them!

The listing now has a red TO BE SOLD AT AUCTION message. They are going to auction the ship off along with the rest of the CMV fleet. We need to help save the ship.

Looks like Carnival Imagination is now showing Aliaga as her destination when she leaves Curacao.  I know there's not a ton of love for the old Fantasy-class ships, but I was on her second voyage as a kid and remember it fondly.

Guessing Fascination will be following along shortly.

Yep, I knew Carnival would sell them for scrap, but I didn't expect that to happen one month AFTER they sold the Fantasy and Inspiration to Aliaga. I suspect Ecstacy and Sensation would be next followed by Elation and Paradise. We may see the Fantasy class be no more by October/November which would make the Carnival Sunshine the oldest vessel to still sail for Carnival Cruise Line. Ironically, this would make the older Tropicalle class and Holiday class vessels outlive the Fantasy class vessels despite being older and smaller that them.

I think at the end of 2021, the Fantasy class, all will be scrapped!

If that happens, than the older Tropicale and the two remaining Holiday class vessels will outlive the Fantasy class vessels.

The Carnival Imagination is about to pass through the Strait of Gibraltar. She is still sailing to Aliaga. Let's see if anyone takes photos or videos of her during her final voyage.
